My Aunt Kathy wanted me to make sure that everyone who read the iPad post knows that she isn't an old lady. She sent me a recent pic that shows her lovely smile- and her entire tomato harvest from her backyard garden. All 2 cherry tomatoes!
My Aunt Kathy and her 2 tomatoes make me feel good!***** I know a single mom who is really struggling right now and I don't know the best way to help her. Time and money. Too many jobs, not enough down time, expenses coming up for her child that might stress the budget. Minimal help from the father. It hurts my heart to see her struggling and I wish I could do something for her. She's come a long way in the past year and the road certainly isn't easy but she is strong and courageous. Women like her make me feel good. ***** Do youhave a post you wrote this week that you are really proud of? Something that... if a new reader came along, THIS is the post you'd want them to read because it really refelcts you or your blog? If so, link up tomorrow for Saturday Sampling hosted by Mrs4444. I've found some great reads out there through this meme!! Connecting to others through their words makes me feel good! ***** I posted a series of links and videos this week and there was a YouTube video of an animation done for the StoryCorps project that NPR does. It's an amazing series- I love it. And that video, which I sincerely hoped you clicked over and watched, touched me so very deeply- Danny and Annie. Anytime there are people who can love each other through difficult, impossible times... even if it means they don't both get to come out of it together... it's deeply touching and it's what I hope and believe I have in my marriage. StoryCorps has another one that touched me- this time, a husband and wife talking about his early stages of Alzheimer's and how it impacts him and their marriage. Please go listen if you can. You can read it but to listen to it, you really get the emotion between these 2 people. Love in the truest sense- love that is chosen in hard times- makes me feel good. *****
