|Uh Oh, The road in front of my warehouse is blocked!|
Trees are fallen everywhere!
|This huge tree toppled and lifted the sidewalk. |
Some neighborhood boys were playing in the rubble
I am thinking about how blessed I am not to have expensive repairs to make. I'm feeling grateful that I and my loved ones are unharmed. I'm wondering how to be better prepared in case of future disasters. I'm appreciating the workers that labored in extreme 100 + weather with little sleep, to put things back in order. I'm appreciating the emergency personnel that served many extra hours in this intense heat.
|White leghorn, and a couple hens|
I feel very thankful on this Sunday morning, as I'm humming,
"I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses",
leisurely watering my flowers, thinking about things.
The simple things: my family....dear friends.... my health and safety,
my humble air-conditioned mobile home....... Running water,....
clean clothes to wear,..... fresh eggs for breakfast,.... my herbs and
flowers, things like that!
|I knew it was going to be scorching last week,|
so I filled up the wading pool in the shade on the patio each day.
|Tommy got a new swing set! His new favorite thing-to-do! |
What joy to play with him, hear him laugh, sing little songs.
(and now I can bribe him to finish his breakfast,
put on his shoes, whatever I ask,
so he can go outside on the swings!!)
Please don't let me forget to thank you for everyday blessings.
It shouldn't take a crisis for me to remember how much I have to be
thankful for. Thank you for keeping me and my family safe, and for
showing me again how to appreciate the simple things in life. Amen
|A little boy down at the pond we visit, tried to sell me this baby turtle for $8.00.|
They learn early, don't they?
Oh, I finally figured out how to get the wrong time and date off of my camera! Isn't that great!
Be blessed, Linda
