Today’s Boost was live, once again, and we discussed all things BREAKFAST! Thanks to all those who tuned in. We talked about gallo pinto, tortillas, and some amazing efforts to support people in Costa Rica who don’t have enough to eat right now. Tomorrow I’ll share some links to more information on all of the above!

Thank You, Katherine! Thank you especially for mentioning Drake Bay. We had a most wonderful time at Life to Life Hostel at Playa San Josecito, Drake Bay. Richardo and his wife Mar are the kindest, most gentle , loving people . We came to know many of Mar’s family members and the two wonderful men who do chores at Life for Life.
Ricardo is a one man turtle rescue operation. He depends on volunteers to help with the turtles but also to pay to stay at Life for Life. And tour groups who previously came in groups of 30 are no longer coming.
They have a daughter Keidy who lives in Sierpe and handles reservations. She is in University Studies to Be a Special Education teacher and she has a young child also. She supports herself by making and selling jewelry to tourists and by helping with Life for Life. So sad that they all have nothing now.
After hearing you this morning we have decided to Pay It Forward with Ricardo and Mar at Life for Life. We know this will help to support at least 4 families. We want to also include funds for food and fly spray for their donkey. The donkey is super special and friendly and she hauls all the guests luggage in a cart to the hostel. She eats grass but she receives a big bushel of kibble after a haul.
They were all so kind when we stayed last November. So this month our CR Pay It Forward is Life For Life Hostel . Thank you for prodding us in that direction. I hope that many people will help with the general fund for 400 families.

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter.”
