Let’s see if I can kick start this blog again. This post seems like an appropriate reminder for this time of year. We have much to be grateful for.
They buried Jessie’s older brother today
he just finished turning five
she never had a toy, tv, or internet
yet she’s grateful to be alive
her brother taught her one through ten
by counting her fragile ribs
now she smiles when her stomach growls
as Mama feeds the newborn in the crib
Jessie runs barefoot down a dirt road
in a tattered dress of white
with baby fed, Mama has only one concern
will Jessie eat tonight
According to the United Nations World Food Programme statistics, approximately 3.1 million children under the age of five die each year from hunger or poor nutrition.
Hola everybody. Hope all of you are well.
It has been several weeks since I stopped by. The health of daughter’s mother has taken a turn for the worse. Bad news appears to arrive every week. It has been busy comfortingCatherine and her mother.
My eye surgery is scheduled for Thursday January 12th. I wanted to touch base with everyone before my long winter vacation. I will be around for the next week harassing you with comments and Chimpism.
It feels good to be back.
Have a good one. Be well.
