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.
