...And the Kindness of Strangers

This is a photo I took last night, after writing yesterday's post.  Such breathtaking beauty, if only you look for it.

Thank you seems too small a thing to offer for the gratitude I have for you all right now.  But yes, thank you, thank you!  I was overwhelmed with the responses and the offers of help. 

I will be madly tying ribbon ties this afternoon to try to get to the post office before they close today, so that I can overnight a package of dresses to a couple who are leaving for a 6-month sojourn to Haiti...on Sunday. 

Providence?  Maybe.  More than that, it's a lesson to each of us.  You do not walk alone, even when the lane is dark.  Reach out, ask for help, take the hand when it is offered.

Bless you, all.

  1. I'm affliated with a school in Port-au-Prince, Haiti called TLC Barefoot School. We have 90 plus students. This is a Christian school and our students are NOT orphans. They either have a parent, relative or guardian but are poor and have need of food and education. We recently received several boxes of flip-flops from a church in Nebraska for our students and it cost us over $300.00 to get out of customs. Haiti does have clothes and shoes BUT the people do not have the funds to buy. We could have purchased the flip-flops in PAP for around $200. So please don't be discouraged if organizations are hesistant.


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
