For the past couple of days, my family and I have been renovating the first house we lived in. It's a small house, a little larger than 600 sq. ft., which was made to feel even smaller with three dogs, one of which was a Great Dane, two cats, and a baby. But it is a good house, always has been.
I thought back to when we lived there. Times were not always smooth, in fact there had been a very rough financial spot where we were behind in the mortgage and the collectors were calling. But we made it. I guess we were lucky. I know we were determined. Right now there are a lot of people in Haiti who need help. So if you haven't already done so, please send money to the Red Cross. Also don't forget that this did not only affect people. There are thousands of animals who are hurt, lost, starving or dying. Please give to the Humane Society to help those poor animals who cannot take care of themselves. Thanks.
