Love Connection

Love Bears All Things
We are, each of us angels with only one wing;
and we can only fly by embracing one another.

I believe that is what we have done…along with Christina
 and joining together expressing the simplest of things in our lives.
Christina…."Thank You" from the depths of my heart;
and to all the ones who posted their simple things
allowing her to meet a challenge.
A challenge set forth out of love for unknown, faceless people
in another country who are suffering and have lost much.
Haiti we hear you, we see you, we feel you.
185 Ladlefuls of Love = $185.00 donated out of sheer love from Christina. 
I love the connection between all of us in this venture;
the link that bonded us together as we appreciated our simple moments,
 our loves, and the things that make us giddy.
Hearts were touched, friends were made,
and we all felt the same connection…
a love connection!
It brought about love and kindness from simple words and phrases.
I read with passion the most intriguing phrases of simple things.
Some of my favorites were:
*to make someone feel special (cinner)
* blue canning jars filled with purple mums and yellow lilies (char)
*Milk waiting at your door (country girl)
* Children praying in unison at school (kamana)
*Clean cotton (my farmhouse kitchen)
* Sunday drives down old country roads (christina)
*Jack Frost patterns on the windows (sherry)
*elastic waistbands :) (Sandra)

…and these are only a few……they were all so
heartfelt and warming to the soul.
 Much has been done here and it’s simply wonderful!

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you invited me in."
~Matthew 25:35
