I realize I didn't post anything up yesterday. To be honest, I felt guilty (still do) writing about needing votes when there are clearly things in this world that far more important.
Oh, Japan. I haven't been able to look away from the devastating news reports since it all began. It is truly unbelievable. Even in my wildest dreams, I just cannot imagine having to deal with such terrifying and life changing situations. I have said this many times before about natural disasters, political issues and lifestyles that take place around the world. It's shocking and scary and so sad.... it's also the exact opposite of my 'charmed life'.
Man oh man. I am such a lucky girl.
How would you even 'bounce back' after something so terrible?
I wish that someone had the answers on how to fix the problems of the world and the workings of Mother Nature.
I do not. The best thing that I can offer in these situations is to donate a little money, send positive vibes and continue to try to be a better person in hopes that it will make some kind of difference along the road...
All of this being said, the PEPSI Refresh contest has not paused and life must continue ... so please do keep your votes up! We're currently in 12th place and it would be great to get to 11th soon. I appreciate your support very, very much.
This evening I have 3 french(wo)men coming to stay with me for the night before they head off on a dogsledding adventure on Sunday. My first couchsurfing experience! I am excited. I hope you have an exciting Saturday too!
Big hugs, warm thoughts and lots of love to you & yours...
