Hugs From Around The World - For Deb and Butch

Badge kindly created by Dory and her Momma

Dear Deb and Butch,

The blessing of the internet is that it allows us into the lives of people hundreds and thousands of miles away, people we would not have a chance to know without it. Our lives get to be touched by "strangers". We get to share laughter, love and successes, but we also get to share heartbreak and loss. The curse of the internet is that when you want to help someone from your online life, the distance often makes it impossible. Because we can't just jump into the car with a casserole and a hug, today, we are sending our thoughts and love virtually.  Butch, we wish you a speedy recovery. Deb, we send hope that your mother's treatment is a success. We also hope that you, as the caregiver, remember to take care of yourself. POTP.

Sending you hugs from the Gatineau Hills, Quebec, Canada (about 18 miles/30km north of Canada's Capital Ottawa, Ontario).

Hailey, Zaphod and their Lady

  9. Your letter is one of the things I truly love about Blogville. People do reach out and touch others the best they can in all circumstances. When I try to explain to outsiders about this community they just don't get it.
