I have been otherwise occupied for the last week and a half.
You see I live in Wilmington, NC, and we have just had hurricane Florence knocking on our door.
We are safe. We are sound. We now have power in our home, air conditioning, internet has been restored.
All the creature comforts we have.
So many still do not.
Grocery stores are not able to receive food deliveries, so the stores are bare boned.
We have plenty of food in my home.
We are beyond grateful.
Everything feels like such a luxury after a week without power, air conditioning, phone service.
I have been up and down emotionally, all over the damn place.
But at the core, I am just grateful!
It is amazing how reliant we are on things, services.
It is also amazing how a disaster of any kind brings out the best in people (and the worst). I have talked with neighbors for the first time, shared a pot of camp coffee.
I am just grateful today!
If you are able to donate to the Red Cross, please do. People have lost their homes!!
