"Good Morning, Mom!" This was the cheerful greeting that I got from my youngest daughter this morning. I was surprised since it came from her, as she is not a morning person at all... so I asked her, "What's good with the morning, Izzy?" She quickly answered, "Because we are alive, Mom!"
This was definitely one of those mornings when you want to go back to sleep and not do your morning chores, but waking up to a greeting like that changes the mood.
Why shouldn't we feel good in the morning when everything seems great? The tragic natural disaster that happened in Haiti has put things in perspective. I attended the daily mass last Thursday, the sermon spoke loudly to me as the priest said, "How would you feel if you were on the other side? Take, for instance, the earthquake in Haiti.... they have so little to begin with; the earthquake made it more horrible... What would you do?"
I am grateful to be alive, and I thank God for all His blessings. In this regard, my prayers go to those who are affected by the earthquake in Haiti. I pray for the victims and survivors, that they will have the strength to endure and rebuild their country. I pray that relief efforts will swamp the island nation and the people will receive the basic necessities the soonest possible time.
Please, let us all help in any way we can. God Bless!

Thank you so much for creating a post for us to keep Haiti in mind. There are several charities that are raising funds for help, my husband and I chose to donate to the Red Cross. If you do not mind, I will paste a link to the cause and how your readers can help. If you do mind, please delete this comment. :)ReplyDelete

You know, I was thinking about that too. People are suffering over there and I'm doing great even without a job. Thanks for the wonderful post to remind us how blessed we are and the we can do something to help them.ReplyDelete
You're welcome... it's just that watching the scenes in Haiti on TV is heartwrenching... the least we could do is to be grateful and help in our own little way...
May God bless your plans Divina!
Yes, totally agree with you that we should be thankful everyday even to be alive. It is really so heart breaking to watch the news on TV. Let's pray and give.ReplyDelete
