 Meagan's Musings... A Blog 
Sunday, January 16 2011

Today I stared and stared at the innocent faces and names on the front page of the Sunday Mail.

Then I flicked to the inside pages and read their stories - some for the second and third time, but the tears still stung at my eyes, just the same.  And I grieved silently for those lives washed away in an instant and for the broken and devastated family and friends left behind.  Not only have they lost loved ones, the whole of their existance as they knew it has gone as they are forced to begin their lives over - with nothing.

The feeling of helplessness pulls at me constantly.  And it's not even just us here in Qld.  It's Victoria, NSW, Tasmania.... Brazil.  I haven't watched the news tonight, so who knows where else by now.

PLEASE HELP SUPPORT QLD FLOOD SURVIVORS!  10% of your purchase from Keep It Unique Keepsakes will be donated to the Qld Flood Relief Appeal.  It seems like nothing, but all the nothings add up and it will make me feel like I am doing something.

Rest assured, this is not just because I am a Qlder.  As the other states start Relief Appeals of their own, Keep It Unique Keepsakes will be there supporting them too.

It seems unimaginable that my world carries on as if nothing has happened...
With a sad heart I say good night.

And so the fireworks of two nights ago rang in another New Year.  It was out of some weird "obligation" I felt compelled to sit there waiting for the clock to tick over with a glass of bubbly in my hand.  Truthfully I could've very easily been fast asleep in bed.  When did I get this old?!?!?

It gave me a chance to ponder though, as I do every New Year's Eve.  I pondered on the year that's just been and how my boys have grown up so much (and yet some days I still crazily find myself wishing their lives away); how unfair natural disasters are (and how did we get fortunate enough to not be affected by any of them); that I've been utterly blessed to have met so many wonderful customers over the last 12 months (many whom have opened their hearts and shared their beautiful (but devastating) stories with me and by no means least, I sat and thought of my little angel boy, my tiny son Jayden, who should have been starting school this year.  And I wonder where I would be right now had he lived....

Another thought for another day.

Wishing each and everyone of you a safe and peaceful 2011.  Always remember, your journey will take you to wherever it is that you need to be.
