Disaster after disaster they continue to help people in need. Our Jersey Shore Red Cross has been very busy still helping us out of the massive damage from Storm Sandy, BUT they got in their trucks 2 nights ago, and headed out to Moore, Oklahoma!
Their objective is to help…without questions. They take action and follow through.
On June 5th, The Jersey Shore Chapter of the Red Cross and Shore Women’s business group are holding an event to raise additional funding for 5 family’s that have been devastated by “Storm Sandy.” These people have LOST EVERYTHING….and of course we are no longer in the news (which is understandable) but their lives are still in a “holding pattern.”
Please don’t take your precious life and your surroundings for granted in anyway. Honor and live it to the fullest….yet always find if there is someone else you can help.
Were you “fortunate’ enough to see the footage of the elderly woman in Moore, Oklahoma talk about the shelter she sought in her home along with her dog Bowser? She prayed to God to spare her and her pet….but alas she could not find her precious pet amidst the horrific rubble. While filming the interview, the TV producer took a gasp and said…”THE DOG”…”THE DOG!”….and the camera swooped over to even more rubble….AND there were those scared eyes of “Bowser!!”
The elderly woman strained to lift a heavy piece of debris, and other people helped…and soon Bowser was standing on all 4′s and free from the wreckage. She then said “I asked God for 2 prayers…and I thought I only got 1…..but he blessed me with 2!!!”
My heart soared with joy as I watched this unfold! As yours would too!
So celebrate your life everyday, because you are worth it! Always feel free to contact me at Eileen Strong anytime for uplifting presentations that make a difference.
And do what Ellen Degeneres says at the end of each show….”Be kind to one another!”
