flood cleanup

It was great to be able to get out and feel like I was tangibly doing something to help yesterday. A lot of what I saw was heartbreaking, but I also saw a lot of hope in my community. There were a lot of people who had lost everything, but were taking the time to help others. Several different groups were coming together to accomplish a common goal. I felt a strong sense of pride & am so grateful for the opportunity to use these two small hands.

  5. These images break my heart. I will never forget the pain I felt when I walked into our home after Katrina. It was people like you who helped us heal. The work you are doing to help your community will forever be a part of their memories. Ps - I posted today about you and your blog and a few other NAshville ladies. Thanks for being a voice in this!

  19. Houston has seen its fair share of floods and hurricanes in recent years. The one good thing about events like this is the sense of community that is brought to light. You guys are in my prayers.
