Today I am so thankful for a warm house.
Yesterday afternoon and into the night, the wind was blowing like crazy. It sounded like a hurricane out there. I had to go out to take Eva to and from dance, and Max to and from special needs mutual. Each time, I was oh so happy to come back to my warm house.
Our power was out for a few hours, but others lost power for 36-48 hours. I've been without power for days on end in the winter, and it is not pretty. I was thinking about that yesterday.
Then I started thinking about people can't afford heat or a decent shelter, or are homeless. I can't even imagine.
I have a warm house, and good books to read, and a pretty Christmas tree to sit by, and herbal tea to drink! I feel so blessed.
