I am sorry


I've been sitting here with my computer in my lap for the last hour trying to find the right words, and all I can come up with is....I'm sorry. I am so sorry for the people that lost family members, for all the people that lost their homes, and for everyone that has been affected in any way by the storm.  Hurricane Matthew was devastating, and even though my family and I were not directly affected, my heart still goes out to all of those that were. 

I am also sorry that my post on Saturday was not more compassionate and thoughtful of what other's were going through at the time. I had been cooped up in the house for a few days, and instead of paying attention to the damage/potential damage from the storm, I chose to put up selfies and links to shop. In hindsight, that was a bad idea and definitely not a shining moment for me. Instead, I should have removed my head from my 'blogger ass' and thought about how many people would've loved to have had the 'problem' of being cooped up and bored on Saturday. 

Again, I am so sorry. My heart goes out to everyone that has suffered and to those that are still suffering because of this tragic hurricane. If any of you are looking for ways to help, it appears that Haiti could use it the most. After doing some research, I believe the most secure place to donate is here at the American Red Cross or here at Planting Peace
