and it contains a fire update if you read
Haiku Friday #89 yesterday.
below yesterday. She also invited visitors to join in the Giving Thanks Challenge hosted by South Breeze Farm. I checked this challenge out and decided better late than never, so I started my list today in the sidebar. I encourage YOU to check it out as time permits and join in on your blog ... inviting others to participate as well ... just because.
|You Are 96% Thankful|
You're an incredibly thankful person, and everyone around you feels very appreciated. You inspire people to be more optimistic, forgiving, and grateful.
I received an email from a friend about sending holiday cards to American Soldiers and want to pass the idea on ... just because. After checking with Snopes Urban Legends Reference Pages, I learned about a Holiday Mail for Heroes program sponsored by the American Red Cross. If you decide to participate, take a minute to check out guidelines & details at the Holiday Mail for Heroes link.
I prepared this post yesterday and scheduled it to publish this morning, but decided to add a note first because I awoke early and learned there's a new firestorm in Sylmar located north of Los Angeles in the foothills of Angeles National Forest ... near an area that burned just last month. Apparently it started last night around 10pm & resulting from the same 'windy weather conditions' that caused yesterdays burn in Montecito. I've included details in today's Photo Hunt at Sacred Ruminations.
Please pray for quick containment and for everyone affected ... especially the fire-fighters facing dangerous conditions on precarious terrain.
