We Are the World

Remember Grace & Albert on Carver Creek? They finally got to read, Dusty Angels and Old Diaries this week. We’ve kept in touch all these years as each of us have moved through and down the path of life. It’s been many, many years since we saw them last, and I doubt we will ever meet again since they are all the way across the country. Grace sent a note telling how, as she read the book to Albert, many old memories flooded back. (She read the chapter, Walkabout Carver Creek first!) I hope they were all good memories!

Here’s an apology and a hug for all the complaining I’ve been doing about my job. How many don’t have any work at all? Today I got a note from a good friend asking for a couple more books. A friend of hers lost her job two weeks ago – AFTER her husband was shipped to Iraq! They want a book for STRONG women! We wish them well as they are in our thoughts.

At my second job, I’m doing private duty for a small baby. This morning, I opened the refrigerator to put in my lunch and thought it must be broken because there was nothing in it! How much do we waste everyday? How much do we take for granted? They have so little and do not complain.

The baby needs a rocking chair. In the hospital where he’s been for over six months, they had a rocking chair that the mother used to rock him to sleep. Now he cries for hours, and she rocks her body back and forth until I know she must hurt all over trying to get him to sleep. I’ve posted an ad on Craig’s List for a rocking chair. (I told her I knew a ‘friend’ who had a rocking chair.) Her husband works 12 hours every day (min wage, I’m sure) and she can’t work because of the baby. She’s selling Avon to help make ends meet, so if you want Avon – let me know.

Well, that’s my thoughts for today. Now I’m going to do what Billy loves to do on a cold rainy afternoon....
I’m going to take a nap!

Take Care on the Journey,
