Today is International Widow’s Day. There were times after R passed away that I thought of women around the world who lived in countries where they were scared: scared for themselves, scared for their children. Some are refugees, some are treated as second class citizens. I thought of those women and how my life was so much more fortunate than theirs. I tried to think of something every day that I should be grateful for, and some days those women around the world were all that I could come up with. Please pray for any widows that you know today. And, better yet, if you know of something special you can do for her, Do It.
Here is a video by Richard Branson on the plight of widows around the country. It is sad to think of what some women have to go through.
