Blog Hiatus and RC

I have so many things going on at the moment that my head is spinning. I considered to stop blogging but thought that isn't an option. I tried it before and failed. To keep sane I leave you till after my trip to Holland (end of July) and will return with lots of treasures.

I have met many wonderful blogging friends over the years and a special one is Bob McKerrow a New Zealander, who has lived in Christchurch. He is doing an amazing job for the Red Cross and for the people in Sri Lanka.
We are sitting on a comfortable chair behind our computers. Imagine that we suddenly get washed away by flooding.
We don't but the people in Sri Lanka do and they already had to put up with far more then you and me will ever be able to comprehend.
From the comfort of our chairs we can be with them in thoughts or
From the comfort of our chairs we can give a little and we won't feel it but for them it makes a big difference.

I leave you with these thoughts
I leave you and wish you lots of sunshine in your life
I leave you and hope we meet again, take care and stay safe arohanui marja

  2. Thank you Marja, Yes I have been out to Sri-Lanka and have seen the problems they face first hand some yrs ago now..
    I donate as one of my charities is the RED CROSS and Save the Children.
    We do not know how lucky we are sat in the comfort of our own homes. There is always some one somewhere so much worse off than ourselves..

    I am thankful you are not stopping blogging Marja.. And look forward to your New and Holiday snaps when you return from your Home Trip to Holland..
    Love and Blessings and take care my friend..
    Hugs ~Sue

  5. Sitting from the comfort of our chairs decisions are not easily made about giving, as times are tough and there are a bounty of needs, good causes, sudden catastrophes and sometimes donations that are misspent. Glad you brought this flood situation to light. As always your heart is in the right place and I look forward to your return and learning more about your Holland, Marja! Safe journey to you and yours!
