Well, the weekend is upon us and it's Friday.... As you all know I spend a few months in Florida to escape the Ides of March and the torrential spring rains in the North. Sunny Florida has had some not so sunny weather and it's raining here. The forecast this weekend is sunny... hmmmm, I certainly hope so.
Friday is also my weekly Earthly Angels segment. For all my wonderful new friends and Crusaders, allow me to explain. In early February during our blizzard in Chicago, I had posted pics of the stranded cars on Lakeshore Drive as well as other gruesome sights. One of my blogger friends left a touching comment. I would like to re-post this section which created the birth of Earthly Angels.
"I know a couple Louis and Pat who take suitcases of baby clothes that they gather from friends, relatives and church members out to the slums of South Africa. They then buy tin flowers and sculptures made from cans salvaged from the rubbish tips, made by those who have no other way to make a living, and bring them back to sell on to friends, relatives and church members."
I wanted to share an experience with you- I know you are working on your friday angel posting- My oldest daughter was my angel last night. She crawled into bed and my little one started babbling, so my oldest, Jas, got out of bed and started comforting her because I was doing homework. I reached a stopping sentence and went to check on them both. My youngest was running a 102 temperature and Jas says- mom can I sleep with her to make her feel better. She had no regards for her own well being because she was worried about her sister. My children are my angels.
