Japan has been much on my mind this week. I feel helpless (even though I’ve done what I can), and so very sad. But we all need some balance. And with that in mind, I offer you heartwarming, hopeful, inspiring, beautiful, and just plain funny items that crossed my path this week on Twitter. It helps.

[SEO: The story of Annie, a dog who had been abused, abandoned, and terminally ill, in a shelter, rescued from immediate euthanasia by Ashley Owen Hill. Her point was: if Annie only had a week to live, she would end that week knowing she had been loved, had a home, and that she belonged to someone who cared deeply about her. Having had to make the unbearable decision to have my cats euthanized when terminally ill, this story got to me. It’s why we take in strays. No matter what happened in their past, they will know love in our house.]
