“The emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it…” Nicholas Sparks
Thank you everyone for your well wishes and kind comments… My heart goes out to all who have lost so much; lives, homes, memories… I am deeply touched and saddened by the devastation that Mother Nature has wrought… but we shall all recover. Today, I ventured outside after being cut off for two days, and what I saw on the news and on the internet made me weep. We don’t have power, cell or internet access (pales in comparison to many). We have toppled trees and branches everywhere and the possibility that power won’t return for a while; so I stopped by my local Barnes & Noble to write this quick post. When feasible, I will stop by and thank all of you who left messages and comments. A big thank you to all who have helped the many; govt, 1st responders, news outlets, red cross, kind folk… Blessings to all.
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” Rumi
When the sky darkened around me and the winds screamed angrily, I realized how petty the things that usually bother me had become. When we are under the peril of a thunderstorm that is wrecking havoc all around us… how can we not call on that which is mightier than us? Stay safe and blessings to all. I love you!
I will follow up tomorrow as they are telling us to wrap it up… Stay safe all and prayers and blessings to all who are hurting… Thank you again to all who have shown compassion and caring…
*Please bear with me as I catch up on your blogs and commenting… I’m back on track with reading and responding to your blogs; albeit at a slow pace. Thank you all for your patience! :-)
Positive Motivation Tip: Stand still when fear grips you and turn within… there are divine guardians reaching out to you.
