Gratitude After the Storm

Every week, I come here before I get into my work and make an account of what I am grateful for.

This week is easy.

I am safe.

I am dry.

I am warm.

So are my children.

Many people that I call countrymen cannot say the same, even still, a week after Hurricane Sandy came to our shores.

I’m thankful that I can help.

    I really like that picture of the leaves.

    I finally got to see all my work friends today. Many of them were without power. Do you know what my friend who had no power until Friday at 9pm did? She spent a bunch of time helping out other people on the Lower East Side who were worse off than she was. She’s a tough person, but underneath is a heart of gold.

    Yes, I so agree. There is so much to be thankful for and so much we can do.

    I am thankful that you are safe and dry, and that my mother and brother are also safe and dry. I really cannot help, at this stage, but I can help through my prayers and blessings for a quick end to their troubles.
