Heat and Electricity

November 8, 2012

22 Days of Thanks 2012 - Day 8
I am thankful for heat and electricity.

We often take for granted things we have... and when we dont have it, we realize how hard life is. In lieu of our recent storm I have been thinking so much of those who were hit hard and are still suffering the aftermath of Sandy. I have friends with no power, still... 10 days after the storm. Slowly watching their FB status updates popping up, so very thankful that their power has been restored and they can take a hot shower... or go back to their house that they had to leave while there was no power.

This storm did not his us out where we live to badly, however I was terribly disturbed by the FB posts asking "where the storm was" and saying things such as "is that all you've got mother nature." Seeing these angered me, knowing I have friends and family... and friends who have families... who were slammed with this storm. Some lost more than just heat and electricity, some lost parts of their homes and their cars... some watched as Sandy swept away the places they made childhood memories right before their eyes. I am so thankful that we did not get hit hard by this storm and I am thinking that those who complained that we didnt get "hit hard" would be thinking a lot differently if they were living in a shelter right now because their house was distroyed, or freezing because they have no clothes, coats or blankets.

Think before you speak people. The people of New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island are still suffering...
