My friends, Last month, the son of a dear friend of ours was burned in a tragic accident. He will be a long time in recovering. Tragically during this time, the home that the family was renting has been sold and now they have to move. Collin goes to wound care 2 times a week at 100 miles round trip each visit. In addition, mom, who is a stay at home mom, has taken on the role of caregiver and nurse, in addition to being mom and driver. The cost of care associated with a burn of this magnitude is extraordinary and has rapidly depleted the families savings. Now, because Collin has missed so much school, and will miss many more, the family is faced with hiring a tutor for him until the school district kicks in and picks up the costs. If you can help please follow this link.
So we are under a winter storm watch. From Saturday evening to Monday morning. Winter on the Northern Plains typically lasts from mid October when we normally get our first snow to late April, when we get our last snow. This year, we have been blessed with Spring like weather until this past week. Two days ago we received an inch and a half of snow. Last year at this time we had over 90 inches to put it into perspective. Now, we are under a storm warning that promises to change that. Now since Winter on the Northern plains is a 6 and a half month proposition, it would make sense that we are used to being in the weather. Nope. First snow of the year and everyone forgets how to drive on snow. Everyone forgets the cardinal rule when travelling. “Never pass the snow plow.” Why? Well apart
Well I got another warning from facebook regarding my friend requests. I have friends on facebook from all over the world. Some I have met, like when I was stationed in Germany and dated someone who lives there for a while. But there are also well over 100 people that I have never before met in my life that I am now friends with. These include people in my blog promotion group, my personal group, my autism support group, my fibromyalgia group, and HOPELIGHTS. If facebook is going to warn me off for friending people that I don’t know, they need to apply it to more than half of the people who are on facebook. I wish that I had captured the screens that facebook prompted me with. I don’t friend people I don’t know without talking to them first. Usually we chat in a group of some type before
