Look for the Helpers
I had intended to post from this weekend road trip I'm on with my sisters. But yesterday was a long day that saw us settled in a beautiful spot just in time to read of the devastating news in Paris. There is nothing I can or want or feel compelled to speak, out of this sadness. One of my sisters, though, quoted Mr. Rogers' memory of his mother telling him that in the face of disaster, we should Look for the Helpers. And then not longer, checking on Facebook, we saw that another sister, one who hadn't been able to join us, had posted this
It is not enough. I know. But thank God it is always true. There always are people helping. I feel moved today to be one, in as many little ways as I can find. Moved, too, to note and appreciate those who help in much bigger ways.
Bon courage, mes ami(e)s, Bon courage!
