This week those of us in Hurricane Sandy's path were all humbled by nature's destructive power. But watching the reports on TV of those who have helped those affected have been inspiring as well. I know that our losses were really insignificant compared to those who lost everything. But I have been grateful this week for the help we have received and the kindness and support of friends.
On Monday just before the storm really hit, I was almost home when a tree fell across the road. Seemingly out of nowhere a couple of men showed up, jumped out of their truck with a chainsaw and made quick work cutting the tree out of the way. (By the way, who of you carries a chainsaw?)
Today, a friend of ours came over and helped Carl cut up our pine tree that broke in half. We both really appreciated his help.
And I have appreciated your kind words and messages on the loss of our boy Sandy. You've shared his loss with us and that has provided a great deal of comfort.
Finally throughout the stress of the week, I've been grateful for the comic relief of a little Scottie named Todd who has really, really tried to stay out of mischief.
Something Todd does really well when he's sleeping!
