    Lori, I know I am an hour late but my net has just come back up from Sandy. Was wondering if I could get in this month? If not thats okay I understand.

    Krystyna and all the other that are dealing with the effects of Sandy. My prayers and thoughts are with you. I just wish all were as lucky as us as we only lost power for two days and had minimal damage to surroundings. I feel so useless right now for all my QB friends that are dealing with the loss of much more. I hope that all is cleared up and back normal as soon as possible. Well as close to normal as it can get. I love all of you and am thinking of you.

    I am with you mdall...I read and see all the damage and want to do something. Unfortunately my finances are not good enough to send gift cards. But good thoughts and prayers are there for all. All I have to deal with is the good ol Northwest Rain.

    Krystyna, I am praying and thinking of you and your family. I am so sorry to hear of you home and business. I wish that I was in the position to charter a helicopter and come to get you and so many others in this devistation and give you shelter and relief. The only thing I can give you is my love, prayers, and thoughts and hope that all will work out in the end. Keep your head up, your faith strong, and your strength. Remeber, that which does not kill us only makes us stronger and God only gives us what we can handle. I know that may seem crude and pointless at this moment but it is the truth. All the love and prayers.

    Got this on the ornament swap thread today and don't know if it was posted here so copied it and will put it on so all of you can read:

    Girls I just did some texting with Krystyna this afternoon, right now she has no place to put things, may I suggest you all make a little place in a drawer or a box and put things in it that you wuold like her to have. FQ's, Ornaments things like that and as soon as they have someplace semi-permanet or permanet we can send them, possibly one of us can collect them all... I really don't think it's a great idea to send things now, cards yes, she can read those and put in an envelope if she wants to keep them... Most of you don't realize what it's like... I didn't go through it totally but was in a Hurricane when I first moved to Florida, I'm still afraid of the wind... 2 doors down from us the water was up 3 foot in thier house,, We were blessed we stayed dry... I cooked and fed and helped people with wash etc... John went and helped rebuild a neighbor's whold downstairs he didn't have insurance... I reall consider all those people who lived close by lucky as they were alive a
    nd did have an upstairs to sleep in and were able to get rebuilt in no time, very little mold etc... Where Krystyna and other friends are, they aren't so lucky,,, maybe lucky to have a place to sleep and water to drink and food to eat but not much else... Save the fancy things for when things are better for her... bright cards and lots of smilely faces on them... Lot of love can be tucked in a card... She knows you care....

    Hugs and GodBless

    Jaba Thanks for reposting this, hope we can get this out to everyone so Krystyna doesn't have to worry where to put things right now, she has enough problems with trying to get her home rebuilt and insurance companies etc... Prayers and cards right now are what she needs... God Bless Rosemary

    Came across this while cleaning out some of my folders:


    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    YESTERDAY is already a memory. TOMORROW is only a vision. TODAY, well lived, makes EVERY yesterday a memory of happiness and EVERY tomorrow a vision of hope! Don't let ANYTHING get to you today! It's ONLY life..live it like nobody is watching!

    Thanks for posting that again Rosemary, I think we all could use it, I know I certainly could! My FIL who lives with us had a small stroke on Thurs. (he's 88) he's doing pretty good, got out of the hospital on Fri. night. We still don't know the results of all the tests yet. Hope to get to all the docs today to find something out. Prayers will be very much appreciated!

    Got my SP name, Thank you Lori! Hope to pick up the one thing she really wanted today while I'm out! She lives North of me! Everyone be blessed today!

    Waiting for my SP name so I can personalize the partially packed box. Hope to hear soon. I didn't play for the last 2 months so I'm fired up for this one.

    Krystyna is aware of the Noeaster heading that way... No gas to get back to her sister's besides the trees have been being blown down... So ask your angels to keep watch over them...
