Today Is A Better Day

Style Shout Out to the American Red Cross for all they do everyday to help those in need.

First of all let me say that it is a beautiful day here today.  The sun is shining and it's currently about 65 degrees.  You would never know that yesterday afternoon was filled with tornados and horrible storms.  As of a few minutes ago there still isn't an official tornado count but the images on the news tell a story of devastation and loss.  It is truly amazing that the force of these storms left only loss of material possessions.

After the storms had passed through our city my husband and I were watching the news and my nine year old was in the studio playing her keyboard and singing.  The lyrics of her song filled me with a sense of hope as the pictures on the television told a story of heartache..."It's shining on you, it's shining on me, it's shining for everyone to see...that today is a better day."

So today in several neighborhoods and towns the clean-up has already begun and of course the American Red Cross is there ready and willing to help.  As my daughter got out of the car this morning she gave me a big smile and said, "See you at noon when you're volunteering Mom and don't forget to send some money to the Red Cross. They really need it."  As I looked at her face I saw hope and positivity and it reminded me that yes, today is a better day.

My Style Shout Out Tip:  Thanks to the American Red Cross for all you are doing to help people in the DFW area today in the aftermath of yesterday's storms.  If you'd like to make a $10 donation to the Red Cross you can text REDCROSS to 90999.  Here's a link to my daughter's song and I hope you all have A Better Day!
