It has been a devastating week for many Australians with the flooding in Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria; and the fires in Western Australia. These disasters have had a massive cost in the loss of life, damage to property and loss of livelihood for many people. It will take a long time for the communities affected to recover and rebuild. What has struck me though is the indomitable australian spirit. The news has been full of inspiring stories and people rallying together to help those in need. The blogging community is also rallying together to help those affected by the Queensland floods. Corrie over at Retromummy has a list of ways you can help. Coles and Woolworths are also collecting donations from shoppers.
This week I am very proud to be an Australian.
