Thinking of Victoria

This is just a few words to say that we can think of nothing else at the moment than all the people who are suffering in the devastating fires in Victoria, especially those who have lost their families. The scenes of whole towns wiped out are just unbelieveable. After my children were asleep last night, I sat looking at some recent lovely photos of my sister's home and family that I was scrapbooking. I tried for a few seconds to imagine how I would feel if suddenly, she and her husband and their three fantastic children were taken away from us. I had to stop as the thoughts were just too hard.

I noticed a cafe yesterday with a sign on its tips bowl saying "All tips going to the Victorian bushfires victims". I thought that was really touching and hope that everyone can dig deep to help these communities come through this nightmare.

Another reminder (especially in the current climate of financial worries) that people are the most important thing in this world and life is the most precious gift.

You are right, it is hard to fathom loosing your family that way... or your whole town
