This morning was another crazy one! Our power is still out. There were confirmed tornadoes right in our town, which is insane to think about - over 110mph winds! I can't even fathom that! This was an uprooted tree near our neighborhood that one of our church friends captured - most of the streets were blocked and our town/surrounding towns had severe damage.
So while I could sit here and gripe about having no power, no heat, a ton of spoiled food we have to throw away, and having to take a cold shower again; I won't. Today, I want to focus on the positives.
I'm so thankful for my in-laws who insisted we come stay with them last night, prepared us the biggest chicken and dumplings meal and kept the treats coming all night.
I'm so thankful for an air mattress and blankets and warmth last night.
I'm so thankful for a husband who tells me how to get to work when every normal route you'd take is damaged/closed/not an option.
I'm so thankful for a roof over my head, even when there's no electricity/heat inside.
I'm thankful for an employer with electricity so I can keep my devices charged so I'm not driving around town with a dead phone.
I'm so thankful for our incomes - even though we lost a ton of food in our fridge/freezer, we have the means to head back to the grocery store and restock when necessary.
I'm so thankful for the clean up crews in our town who are trying their hardest to make everything back to normal!
I'm so thankful it's almost the weekend and there is lots to celebrate!
I'm so thankful for YOU all, who come back to read day after day. This blog may not be as interesting as it once was (back in the wedding planning days, lol) but it feels good to still keep up with it and write whatever is on my heart that day.
Have a great day!
