All Clear

I wish I had time to email each of you right now, but unfortunately our internet isn’t working so I’m renegading wireless from our neighbors and don’t want to stay online for too long.  Anyway, we were very fortunate and blessed in this storm, but I know there are others who werent.  I slept through most of it last night and we returned home this morning to a house with electricity and no visible damage to our house.  Even the doves that live in our front tree survived the storm all snuggled together.  It was amazing to see them there this morning.

That being said, there are many who have had devestating damage.  We are still facing the challenge of getting 2.7 million people back into the area and there is extensive damage in east Texas, where one of my dear friends has most of her family.  So please continue to think about those people and to reach out and help those people when the opportunities become available.

I’ll post pictures and things later.  Most of all, this storm has taught me about what’s important.  Having Jason, T-Bone and I together is important.  Family is important.  The amount of love I have in my life is important.  And, as silly as it might sound to someone who isn’t a part of this blogging community, your support and the friendships I have here are important.  This was a very scary situation, made a little more bearable with your help.  Thank you.  More once my internet is restored.

  1. So good to hear from you. I worried about you when you were unable to get out. Watching the news was a priority to see how it would affect Texas. Having been there 3 times, Houston, San An, and Dallas, I just love the state and it’s people. Take care.

  2. I’m happy you are home and safe. One of our friends was stuck in the Woodlands with a new baby. A family from that area found them and took them in last night. I hope life gets back to normal quickly for you.

  3. Every cloud has a silver lining or in this case a hurricane! Learning what’s really important in this world of material things is a gift. I am glad to hear you weathered the tempest unscathed…especially after trying to leave.
