A Grim Reminder

It is bucketing down rain outside and I was grumbling to myself about having to don waterproof gear to go out this morning.  Then I thought to myself - I have a warm house, my family is healthy and safe, our roads are driveable, buildings intact.  Meanwhile, Haiti is devastated.  In a twist of fate it could have been us.  So I told myself to shut up and be grateful.  And I donated to Doctors Without Borders.  If you click the button Knitters Without Borders it will take you to the Yarn Harlot's blog.  Let her know how much you have donated and she'll enter it into the Knitters' tally.  As she says, "if you can afford to knit, you can afford to donate".
