His name is Kiki; I will never forget it. He was pulled from the rubble of his apartment eight long days after the quake that rocked Port-Au-Prince Haiti.

Today I am thankful that

  1. Kiki reminds me to be joyful, even in the midst of despair.
  2. despite bitter ignorance, the world has embraced a tiny country in need beyond our comprehension.
  3. we can come together virtually and make a difference.

For what are you thankful?

If you would like to contribute to the Haitian relief effort, here is an extensive list of organizations.

  1. Today I am thankful that:

    1) I have a warm, dry home and a solid roof over my head.
    2) My focus is passionate and sharp when I ask it to be and for friends who are willing to lend me their eyes.
    3) I am tolerated by those who love me when I am restless.

  2. Today, I am thankful for…

    1) the many companies that have released resources for recovery efforts in Haiti (A local shipping company just sent 2 high-speed cargo ferries for relief ops),

    2) friends who check in on my from time to time if I get busy or sick or whatnot and don’t post something somewhere, and

    3) The Saints winning. I know, trivial, but that team and town are *due* a trip to the superbowl, regardless of the outcome!

  3. Today I am thankful for –

    1) The fact that I have a little to give – who knows when I may be in a position where I need someone else to do the giving …

    2) The apple-spice muffin on my desk

    3) The “January thaw” temperatures, which mean that all that water falling out of the sky isn’t going to have to be shoveled
