My Heart Bleeds for the Midwest…

Hi Everyone,

Last night I logged on and was fully prepared to post 2 reviews for all of you. However as I started to type, the news broke of the tragedy and devastation out in the Midwest. My heart goes out to all those affected by these storms. Sending positive thoughts and warm wishes for everyone as they begin the journey to recovery. I send my gratitude to all of the first responders and volunteers that have come together to help their communities. I hope that everyone that remains in the path of this terrifying storm finds a way to stay safe.

With warm thoughts and prayers,
