Name them One by One

It’s good to count your blessings, it’s good to name them one by one.  Seeing as we’ve been without power for a good 30 hours I thought this would be a good thing to do.

Yesterday afternoon a storm blew through our fair town.  Our little Land of Make Believe took a pretty good hit.  Several trees were up rooted.  Power lines and poles came down – hence the no power. 

  • Trees came down, but no one was injured.
  • Power lines on the ground, but no fire.
  • Trees took out garages, sheds, fences, but no homes were destroyed
  • The Land of Make Believe is a mess, but our property had no damage
  • We have no power, but have hot water and a gas stove
  • We have no internet, but we have smartphones
  • We have no power to charge our smart phones, but we have car chargers
  • I have to speak to a group of people at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, but I will be clean even if I will not have a way to blow dry my hair.
  • Big Brother had prom tonight, but he is a guy and low maintence.
  • We went to bed really early last night and woke up well rested with the sun.
  • Our laptops work well at Panera.
  • Moved all food from the fridge and freezer to ice chest, but I had enough ice chest to store it all.
  • Just heard from Big Brother while at prom, after being without power for a day and a half, the group he is attending prom with drove to a town thirty minutes away for dinner only for the power to go out while enjoying their salad.  They went through the  drive thru at McDonald’s, but he is still having fun.
  • I will be glad when the power is back on, but I blessed that I have a place to live that generally has power.
