After the storms…

Let me be as a feather.
Hi my friends, I’m hoping you are doing well and I’m sorry it’s been awhile since my last post. I sure haven’t forgotten you or our Joymail subscribers. My family and I had evacuated from Hurricane Harvey, and then we had family in the path of Hurricane Irma in FL. & GA., so I’m searching for normalcy after the storms. I’m sure many of you can relate, most people I know were either effected themselves, or knew someone who were either in the hurricane paths, or effected by the fires or other worrisome things going on lately. Please leave us a comment and let us know you’re ok, or if we can pray for you, or any other way we can help.

It’s been heartwarming to see neighbor helping neighbor, the tons of donations and volunteers, and as always, the wonderful work of first responders. Storms in our life can bring clarity as to what’s truly important as well, I know when we were leaving, besides the practical matters and safety of my family I wasn’t thinking about much else that I tend to worry about in my day-to-day life. Sure didn’t care about drama, or little stuff, wasn’t worried about if so & so didn’t like me, or any of that. Just family, our pets, friends, and keeping the faith were important. In the end, those are the things that matter.
I stumbled across this quote and thought it was a great one to share with you today..

Let me be as a feather. Strong with purpose yet light at heart, able to bend. And, tho I might become frayed, able to pull myself together again.
