Let’s be kind to one another

I can’t think about food today.

I have been wracking my brain trying to think about what to say. I thought, if I write about food when we have major tragedies tearing apart people’s lives, it’ll seem as if I am ignoring it.

The last thing I want to do is come across as uncaring or selfish, when I have been described as an empath.

In short, I actually think and feel just a bit too much. I haven’t been ignoring these tragedies. I have been thinking about what to say.

After waking up and hearing about what happened in Las Vegas, I decided that I needed to say something.

I just don’t know what to say. I am heartbroken. Thoughts and prayers are great, but we need to do more.

Today I am laying low. I am focusing on self-care while thinking about ways I can give back. I open up my comments section to those who wish to discuss ways to help.

I don’t want to toot my own horn, but this weekend I attended the Make-A-Wish Walk for Wishes celebration. Thank you to everyone who donated. We raised $280!

This Friday, Oct. 6, I will participate in the Palo Alto Weekly Moonlight Run and Walk: a popular family event benefitting local non-profits serving kids and families.

Make-A-Wish and the Palo Alto Weekly are two of my favorite organizations that give back. Tell me about yours!

Let’s focus on doing what we can to help others.
