Hurricane Irma; open our hearts again

***Update 9/20/2017***

Mother Nature has been showing her darker side to us the past few weeks.  It is hard to talk about dolls when so many are threatened by natural disaster.  Not only three Catagory 5 hurricanes in the Caribbean, but two deadly earthquakes in Mexico.  

Please keep those in harms way, wherever they may be, in your hearts and prayers.  And if possible, donate to those on the frontline of helping.

We probably all know someone battered by Hurricane Irma; I have relatives and dear friends looking to put the pieces of their lives back together.

The fact that it could have been so much worse in Florida does not change the devastation that has been left there, and the islands of the Caribbean were literally ripped apart.  So, if you can, help as you can the people of the Caribbean and Florida rebuild their lives.

Thank you.

    1. Yo tampoco, Isabel. Me preocupo por mis amigos que viven a través de esto, y todos aquellos cuyas casas han sido destruidas en todo el Caribe.

  2. You certainly was there for me with you prayers and e-mails during our ordeal in Florida. I can barely watch the weather channel because there are systems brewing off of Cape Verde.

    1. I keep my eye on NOAA.gov and saw those two waves off the coast of Africa...70% chance of developing into tropical storms. Geez, we need a break!

      I'm so grateful that you and you Mom, and my friend Mary, came through this safely.

      warmly,

      Beth
