The shocking image of the drowned little Syrian boy that has gone viral lately ( http://www.boredpanda.com/syrian-boy-drowned-mediterranean-tragedy-artists-respond-aylan-kurdi/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=BPFacebook ) has also entered the mommy bunny house. I pondered this horrendous picture and it’s meaning most of the day.
I felt so powerless – nothing I could do could change these children’s lives.
All I can do is reach out to those in my own community who are in need. I can give clothes and blankets and food and love and a helping hand or go through trouble for those who come my way.
We complain that God is allowing so much sadness – but perhaps the problem lies not with Him, but with us.
I’m waking up, and opening my eyes and heart to those who come my way.

Ps: amidst the sadness today, there were also light and love as The Prince decorated my dead hibiscus tree with plastic bags, garden gloves and a shower cap. He said he was making a ‘jingle bells’ (Christmas tree!).
