The People of Japan Are Suffering

I  know that everyone has seen the terrible images from Japan.  It makes me so grateful that all of my family is safe.  I really have worried about a story that has not really been covered, and that is "where are the children"?  There have been no children in sight.  They were all at school or in daycare while their parents were working.  Very few had time to get to their children before the tsunami came.  So many are hurting from losses of family, their homes, and their jobs.  We have always thought of Japan as a rich country but they do need the world's help now.

I will observe the Bloggers Day of Silence on Friday, March 18.  I will pray for the people of Japan.

Tomorrow may be a life-changing day for Dale and me.  We begin marketing our jewelry.  We've had so many delays while we worked out little obstructions that came our way.  Now we are READY!

I have really enjoyed designing jewelry, it satisfies my creative side.  Now if it will just be a financial success then we can really enjoy what we are doing.  Will let everybody know how it goes in a few days!

My World Today

My world is split between beauty and fun and the news of the world.  I have been filling my days with jewelry design, using natural stones, and wonders from our earth.  Today I am dipping Cake Balls in sweet flavored chocolates.  Then there is the world I live in, The South.

I am proud to be from the South -where tea is sweet, accents are sweet; summer starts in April, front porches are wide and words are long ; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable, pecan pie is a staple, Y'all is the only proper pronoun ; chicken is fried , biscuits come w/ gravy ; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. Have a good day y'all & bless your hearts!  copied

Then I feel obligated to turn on the news (I am a reformed news junky!).  Death and discord in the Middle East, high gas prices, and Charlie Sheen.  Luckily we seem to be getting a short break from Lindsey Lohan.  I have a suggestion to solve some of the worlds ills.  Send Charlie to the Middle East.  With his "fists of iron", "tiger blood", and "superior brain" he can deal with the dictators in that part of the world.  By the time the deed is done he will dissolve into a puddle of Jello and we should be able to deal with that!

Then I can get back to my world of creativity, front porches and blessing hearts!  That is my thought for today!
