Have I done any good in the world today?

I'm back... I went to Amy and John's for the weekend while Jeff was out of town. I thought I would be able to write every night in my blog while I was there, but I stayed so busy with the girls ... that I just went right to bed at night pretty beat ( this grandparent stuff isn't for sissys you know :).

It is late tonight too, and we just got home and trying to unpack. So I have decided to tell you about my fun weekend ...tomorrow ...since there is so much to tell!
One thing that happened this weekend was with my son Bradley and his family in Texas. After all of flooding, Brad was able to go and be part of the volunteers who were helping out the victims and their homes. The devastation happened only 20 minutes from their home. Here were the photos he sent on FB and what he said about it...

"I had such a humbling experience volunteering to clean up and gut homes in Wimberely that were flooded. So devastating."

"Thanks to The Red Cross who provided today's lunch. I couldn't believe how many organizations and local restaurants donated meals and snacks for the volunteers. So neat to see all the help"

"Water made it about 4ft up the walls so we had to completely remove all the drywall and insulation to the ceiling."

After talking to him, it made me think of a song that I have heard all my life called... Have I done any good in the world today? Here is a music video of a couple of popular artists singing it. It is very touching and a very appropriate question for all of us to ask ourselves each day.

Good Night dear friends!
