As I scanned the list one country in particular struck me deeply...
United Arab Emirates
As I consider my last blog post that speaks about some of the misery my family is going through having been victimized by extortionists, I was taken back by the views from someone in this one country of Syria. Daily I turn on the T.V. and see Syria in the news, a country that is by all rights already in a civil war. Images of terrible violence all over and human suffering on a scale that is hard to understand.
Whoever you are in Syria, my prayers are with you. And thank you for reminding me that our situation is not all that bad. We care. I try to imagine who you are. An OFW perhaps? A nurse? Or an Govt. employee? I guess the only thing that really matters is that this connection is made.
The next time I feel sorry for my self and my family I will remember you and pray for you.
There are others too whom view our blog from precarious circumstances. Like Simonette in Bulgaria who has been in the worst snowstorm in a century there. All I can say is we appreciate you following us even in your own hardship.
And to all of you around the world who visit this blog, thank you for your silent support.
