I'm so Grateful


There is so much to be grateful for...family, food on our plates & a roof over our heads to start.   We are reminded of this especially when so many people are still suffering from the devastation "Superstorm Sandy" caused two weeks ago today.  The town my husband works in only had power return on Saturday night!!  I'm hoping that trend continues in surrounding towns and states.

Of all of the people we know that were impacted by Sandy, my in laws were hit the worst.  We will be visiting them this coming Saturday to lend a hand and give some hugs, they sure need them!  I have already sent my mother-in-law a package of thank you cards, but I'll be bringing even more with me this weekend.  I think she's going to need them.  It is inspiring to hear how many people have volunteered their time to help at the Jersey shore...food, laundry, cleaning, fixing, demolition, churches going door to door making donations...it makes my heart feel good that their are so many caring and good people out there!

We have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!  I hope you do too!
