Thousands of Thoughts

There are thousands of thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up the pen and writes. ~William Makepeace Thackeray

A hail storm yesterday and last night did quite a bit of damage to the garden and I felt helpless as quarter sized hail pummeled the ground and the fragile seedlings. Nothing compared to the storms in the Midwest, our garden is just extra fresh produce to take us through the summer. I can't imagine the devastation of seeing your entire year's work lost with the flood. Or your home, your farm and all your possessions. And still 3 years later Katrina victims aren't back in their homes, neighborhoods aren't rebuilt, families are still struggling. Two weeks ago another story about FEMA giving away donations intended for Katrina victims. It makes you wonder who is making these decisions with peoples lives.

Lovingly,
