Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

  18. Marcie says:

    What’s Inspiring today is the way my town has been working together to help our friends and neighbors who lost their homes to sandy. Were with out power and heat for two weeks. There was hot meals and coffee being offered in town for free. Everyone pulled together and helped out anyway the could. Now for the task of rebuilding and finding shelter for all those displaced. My prays and thoughts to everyone who lost their homes. I was one of the luck ones I just lost my power, heat for two weeks and my outside shower.

  19. Sarah says:
