Hand in hand

Kindness and generosity go hand in hand.  And we thank you for you extending a helping hand.

The Filipinos are extending their grateful hearts and I am sharing a note from Facebook of TruPinoy.

A grateful nation thanks all of your very generous hearts and outpouring support in the rescue/relief/recovery/rehabilitation efforts on the devastation brought about by Typhoon Yolanda (International code name: Haiyan).

May every Filipino you encounter in the world thank you all personally. Our people affected by the recent natural disasters may not have a very Merry Christmas, but because of all of you, they will feel that there is hope for one. God-bless all of you and all those in this country who make it better for others in need.

Many have asked me if I have any family in the Philippines and if they are affected.  Two siblings are in the Philippines and luckily they are not affected.  However, there is one person that I connect with in WordPress and I have not heard from him.  The last we “talked” he was worried about Yolanda.  Then silence.
Today, I a note from him that he is “Still Here”.  Thank goodness. 
Please keep them in your prayers.  Thank you again for your kindness and generosity.
