Congratulations Chile!

The last 24 hours my mom has cried 33 times. One per each one of the miners who were rescued today. We are happy for them, for their families and for all the people in Chile. They gave us an example of unity and hope!

For a Wordless Wednesday... a yummy treat!

My computer is acting weird again. Hugo, my mom's very nice friend is going to check it but I don't know if I will get it back tomorrow. If I disappear for a couple of days... you will know the reason...

Have a good night

Wonderful news that they are all safe and sound!

Your pal, Pip

JackDaddy said...

Yes, that was so very exciting that they all have made it out safely. I can imagine how hard it is for the families to wait until they can come home!

Frankie Furter said...

YES Lorenza, the rescue of the miners should show us all that a little cooperation and a strong will to make things right... two leggers CAN accomplish ANYTHING that they CHOOSE to accomplish.
Hope your computer gets taken care of quickly. We would really miss you if you were gone more than 87 mins..

Deborah said...

Hi Lorenza! We tuned in when the last two miners were being pulled out. We cried too! We are so happy and we thank God that those brave souls are on land now.


Cappy the Eskie said...

Hi Lorenza - We were watching the rescue also. You should be very proud. Everyone was for praying to Saint LORENZO, the patron saint of miners.

It was a very emotional rescue and there were many barks of joy at our house.

The miners and the rescuers gave us all a rich lesson in the things that really matter: Faith, Family, Friendship and Love.

Hugs and yips,
Cappy and Ollie

Hi, Lorenza -

We were also soooooooo happy that the miners were able to get out.

Mama knows only too well about computer problems. She deals with a lot of them at work - which is why no one heard from us for quite a while.

Love -
