I will try to remember this next time my husband bugs me & donation to Red Cross for Japan.

It is easy to love people far away.
It is not always easy to love those close to us.
It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than
to relieve the lonliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home.
Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.
-Mother Theresa
