Hurricane Relief

The girl child and I spent the afternoon at Wal-Hell buying supplies to give to various churches and charitable organizations for the hurricane victims. It was helpful for both of us to have something tangible to do. She doesn't understand much of what has happened, and because she's a concrete little being, she's focused her concern on our family who live on the Virginia coast. Not surprisingly, I spent much of my day answering her "What ifs?"

At the moment, thankfully, you can't throw a rock in Asheville without hitting someone or some organization collecting monetary and in kind donations for hurricane relief. So I'm not going to give you a list. But I'm going to encourage you to do all you can. Glad we're all in this together.

Edgy Mama, Your little girl child sounds like a sweetie. I think it's wonderful that you have given her the opportunity to be love in action.

It is good to see americans across the political, social, and economic spectrum acting in unison to help the people displaced by Katrina!
