In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, quite possibly the worst natural disaster Northeast America has seen in my lifetime, I'd like to convey my heartfelt prayers to all those in crisis. While my family and I still do not have heat or power, we realize how truly fortunate we are that our home is still standing.
Tensions run high during times like these when we wait up to six hours on a line at the gas station, hoping that they don't close just before we reach the pumps. Try your best to show some extra kindness to whomever you may encounter, you just don't know what they are going through.
I feel lucky to have a neighbor with a gas stove who offers to feed my kids a hot meal and who gives me a hot thermos full of coffee so I can start my day! Not to mention friends who had power and invited my family to eat,drink and take a piping hot shower when needed! Thank you so much!!!
I hope this blog finds you safe and sound, with heat, electric and above all your good health!!
