One of my girlfriends called me early this morning and asked me if I wanted to spend the day shopping.  As she works full time and I don’t get to see her often, I jumped at the chance.  We had a great day together and I came home really tired.  I’d like to say that I bought a ton of fun things, but only a couple, as I’m focusing on the boxes I’m sending to Puerto Rico.  I was originally going to send three or four boxes, and now the number is more like ten.  I just can’t let these women go without so much, when I have so much to spare.  I got an email from one of the ladies we have adopted, and I’ve asked her if I can share her story on facebook.  One I get the answer, I’ll share it there as well as here, because what she’s lived through since the hurricanes has been unbelievable.  I can’t understand how in 2017, their infrastructure, telecommunications, and electricity can be un-managed for so long.  She and her family have been through so much, and their journey isn’t over.

I’m glad we can be of help, and hope I can find others that will consider giving things (or gift cards) to these ladies who have lost so much.  I just want to help make their struggle a little less and hope we can do something to ease their burden.
