I am so thankful for my family, funny how you can be with some of your family and still wish that you had all of your family together. I always feel that way during any time there is a disaster or crisis. I always want to have us all together, for some reason I feel like we can handle anything if we are all together, too bad life doesn't work like that.
Still when something does happen to one of us it is nice to know that no matter where we are we all keep in touch and check and pray for each other. That's what family is for and we feel blessed. Actually, that is exactly what our friends do too! Thanks for all your concern and support. So far the electricity was out only 6 or so hours and now it is on. We are trying to get everything washed and cleaned just in case the storm gets any worse.
"The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.
