Lick a bowl - Diary 19
I went to CVS today and noticed all the water bottles by the door. Hundreds of water bottles that slowly but surely will be sold by next week.
I come home and watched the news and see the horror of the victims in Haiti fighting and killing each other for the same water bottles I just saw right by a door unsupervised.
Fu**ing A! I felt guilty lifting a bottle to my lips and thought, what a country we live in! A water bottle is overlooked and tossed half drunk aside while others kill for it.
As I got ready for bed I thanked whomever was listening for my kids, husband, family and friends being safe on this night and all the nights we’ve been safe from harm.
All we really need money for is a roof over our head, clothing and food. You need love too but you should not be buying it.
Be thankful we are here and have enough to eat and more than enough to drink. Help someone tomorrow. Donate food, clothing to people who need it. Find out how you can contribute to a cause that will make a difference.
My birthday was great yesterday. My family came over and I cooked (my mom too). Made some red velvet cupcakes with frosting that everyone devoured. I saved two for my friends at work D and V. I knew both would enjoy it!!.
I got some ‘banging presents and some beautiful flowers from my 3 year old nephew, cause he woves me.
Both my kids made me breakfast and they were delicious. Thank god the first one was a fiber cereal, cause by the time I got the bacon and eggs I was thankful for the extra help…ewww nasty!
Have a great night kiddies, lick a bowl if you can. It’s liberating.
