Despite our immediate family needs and busy schedules, A. & E. are there for each other, for their families safeguarding and providing. Chopping down tree branches and gathering twigs for the fireplace, marinating meats and firing up the grill, accompanying each other on a Home Depot/Walmart run to pick up extra survival gear . . . The T. men are mighty and solid.
Amazing how dire circumstances pointedly remind us what’s most important. With an almost three-month-old in tow, whom I continue to be in awe of and daily still can’t believe she’s ours, I am overwhelmed by the gift of our Present. Graced to be alive. Grateful to share my heart with my partner, my daughter, family and friends.
Post Sandy, carry on. Seek Spirit. Be rooted.
