I am participating in the Bloggers Day of Silence tomorrow, March 18th (organized by Ever Ours and Utterly Engaged) to promote awareness for the disaster relief needs in Japan. I want you to take the time you might have spent reading my blog and spend it thinking about the many blessings in your life. Take two minutes and make a list of the things that have made you smile today and the people you know will make you smile tonight. Feel blessed to have food and shelter.
And then, if you feel you have the means, please do donate to the disaster relief efforts in Japan. Or feel free to find a different charity supporting the cause that you would prefer to donate to. Or even find a different cause you feel more compelled to help. The point is to take a moment to appreciate what you have and to give what you can to those who have less.
