Hello! Grace here 🙂
How are you doing? I hope you’re all having a pleasant week.
Mine? Brilliant! On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being Beirut, 10 being anywhere else) I’d say I’m at least a 10. Just overwhelmingly lucky to be safe, healthy & happy over here!
Donating is something that has helped me ‘handle’ the tragedy this week. If you find you’re struggling with it too, as a fellow empath, donate! It really did help me feel less helpless here in NYC.
And the scary truth is… that could have happened in any number of places, to any of us. There but for the grace of God, go I.
I just looked up the exact meaning of that phrase because I say it a lot (guess who I got it from?!) and it says the following:
‘I too, like someone seen to have suffered misfortune, might have suffered a similar fate, but for God’s mercy.’
Blimey! Ain’t that the truth. So let’s count OUR blessings and do what we can to help from afar. If you can’t donate, perhaps make a card with the poor people of Beirut in mind. I’m a believer in positive energy, and it certainly can’t hurt! But here’s a link with some resources, if like me, you’re at a loss as to how to help.
Speaking of positive energy… I’d love to share this week’s beautiful Groovi SHAC cards with you!
STUNNING! All of them. Another round of glorious homework turned in! I’m seeing more and more Christmas creeping in… But I suppose it is August already! I’m not going to pretend like you weren’t making Christmas cards in May too though! hahah!
Here is your next challenge…
We’re driving to the seaside/coast this weekend… to get some socially distanced fresh air. The drive is 5 hours from NYC… Can you guess where we might be going? If you can guess correctly I’ll enter you into a raffle to win this Groovi plate set! I’m sticking with Stuart’s lovely seaside theme!! Make sure to check out his blog yesterday, if you haven’t already! There’s a competition there too!)
Enjoy your weekend! I’ll be back tomorrow with my Saturday share 🙂
Lotsa love, Grace xo
