What's Your Day Like? ~

In the blink of an eye everything can  change.
So forgive often and love with all your heart.  You may 
never know when you may not have that chance again...

Most weeks fly by but somehow this week seemed to have dragged on and on. 
 Guess it did not help with both of us not feeling our best.  We are both 
better now and in "good"  shape again.  Earlier in the week we had freezing 
weather, then heat wave.  Today back to cooler temperatures.  Love it.

This morning I spoke to my sister in Puerto Rico.  Once again she is 
without power.  Like most of the island.  That she deals with.  Not easy
 but you do the best you can under the circumstances.  But then 
she told me that there is no food.  She has not eaten a hot 
meal in so long.  When she had power for those 
few days there was no food in the grocery stores.  

This morning she made the lines at a grocery store for a few hours. 
 When she finally got in the shelves were empty.  How do you 
deal with the fact that someone you love has nothing to eat?

Here we take it for granted we will eat.  We have many favorite spots
 and all we have to do is choose a place and there we are.  Food is served.
 Nirvana, now is just happy to have a can of cold soup, some crackers.  She told
me today, "even if I did not like it before, if I can get some I will eat it."

If anyone knows of a way I can get supplies to my sister, please let me know.
You know my email address.  Best way to contact me.  My brother in law is an executive
 in J&J and the company is going to help them getting some supplies to their families.

Nirvana falls in this category.  Hopefully some of the supplies Nina and David
 will be sending will get to her.  Simple things, soap, batteries for the lamp.
She lives in darkness.  Yes most of the island does, but this is my sister
and right now my concern is HER!!!  She has water.

Lucky her at least she gets to take cold showers.  Yes we take for granted
 so much.   What we take for granted someone else is praying for.

Be grateful for another day.  Not everybody made it, so don't take it for granted.
It could all be gone tomorrow.  Don't forget that.  What are you grateful for...
