Thankful


Hurricane Sandy.
The weathermen called it the perfect storm.
Looks to me to be a complete disaster.



Today I intended to post a few pictures of pretty fall leaves.
After the storm, it seemed so trivial. I was feeling guilty.

Then I realized it's not trivial.
It's my life.

Instead of feeling guilty, I choose to feel thankful.
Thankful for the beauty around me.
Thankful my family is safe.
Thankful I have a warm, dry house.
Thankful for clean water.
Thankful for the everyday things we so often take for granted.

I am thankful for humanity's ability to care for one another.
If you're looking for a way to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy, the American Red Cross has a big banner across their home page asking for donations.

My heart goes out to those affected by the storm.
I pray there are no more lives lost.
I pray the healing will begin immediately.

I so agree. It's wonderful to have things to be thankful for & I am grateful you and your family are safe & sound.

Thank you for sharing the leaves, too. I am going to miss the fall this year, I think and I wish I weren't. I love the colours the leaves change.
