it isn't even november yet, but i have much to be thankful for...

  • safety during one of the worst storms this area has ever seen...a "FRANKENstorm", if you will
  • power.  i can't even put into words how much that one little word means to me.  i was prepared to be without it for days and days and days.  imagine my surprise and my happy heart upon waking this morning to find that, for once, my power company deserves praise and not wrath.
  • family and friends who called/texted to check on me.  it is always good to feel loved and cared for.
  • no storm damage.  the wind howled last night and, i'll be honest, i was SCARED.  as far as i can tell from my "inspection" this morning, the house is safe and sound.  no windows broken, no leaks, no cracks.
i spent some time this morning carving pumpkins.  i haven't taken pictures yet, but i will.  i am hoping that the trick-or-treaters are still able to come around tomorrow night.  i have the cute pumpkins and i have a TON of candy.  we never did lose power here and the streets are clear, so i am keeping my fingers crossed.

my thoughts and prayers go out to those who suffered the brunt of this storm.  so many people lost so, so much.  the pictures on the news this morning show devastation like i have never seen in this country.  i am truly hoping that these people find the relief that they need and that it happens soon, before the really cold weather sets in.
