Sending more than flowers

I've been collecting flower photos to share with you, but hadn't yet formulated a post for them. Then this evening, in reading updates on blogs I follow, I followed a link on one of them to another blog. The post pertains to surviving domestic abuse and helping a neighbor in need. And suddenly, my flower photos had purpose.
Once before I contributed to something similar, a successful Kickstarter project for Chickens in the Road. It was only a small donation, but it felt good. Tonight I gave a little more to help Kat's modest but critical goal. (And I will be praying for her; too many women in this situation, trying to escape domestic violence through divorce and a restraining order, end up murdered.) Although we have never met and I've never even visited her blog, Kat is my neighbor. And I want to send her more than flowers.

That's it for now from . . .

Thanks for sharing. I hope everyone who reads your blog will be inspired to help Kat. I did. She has obviously been left in a bad position and needs the help of her "neighbors."

Thanks for spreading the word, Michelle. I abhor domestic violence and will support Kat as much as I can.

Michelle you are a good soul! It is horrible to think about women being abused by their spouses/boyfriends and we can only pray that someday the violence will stop somehow...
Hugs,
