I had a post planned for today - I was going to share this awesome song my sister introduced me to (this house sharing is already paying off) and tell you all to have a relaxing, lazy weekend.
But after getting up this morning and hearing about the earthquake and tsunami I have a different message. Instead of being lazy this weekend, why don't we all do a few things:
- Send up some prayers for all those affected
- Consider a donation to the Red Cross or your favorite charity
- Take a minute to take stock of how prepared you and your family are for an emergency. Do you have a 72-hour kit? Some extra water in the house? A plan to communicate and meet up in case you are separated? If not, maybe it's time to get a few things in place.
- Make sure those around you know how much you love them - take a minute to say the words.
