The devastation in Haiti is heartbreaking.
Countless children lost.
Countless families divided.
When something like this happens we are given an opportunity to see what is really important in life. What really matters.
It isn't all the material things that bind us, it's human connection. It's touch. It's a hug from a friend. It's a phone call from your mom. If you've been putting off that interaction today is the day to reconnect.
As for me, I'm at home today nursing a sick little boy who has a stomach bug. I'm sitting in my warm house hovering over him as he tries to fall asleep. He had a few sips of clean, pure drinking water and he is resting comfortable on our couch. The only sound is the rythmic rotation of the washing machine as it cleans his soiled clothes and bed sheets.
Even in my exhausted state, I am capable of seeing how truly blessed I am.
May God's goodness shine down on Haiti. We are praying for you.
