It’s hard to believe this is the day after Christmas in Delaware! It has been snowing most of the day and “they”
are predicting that it will continue through the night. I am grateful that my husband is here and is content to be here.
I’m glad my nurse daughter worked last night and got safely home this morning. I am thankful that my Eldest Daughter,
Beloved Son in Law and their Love Bug are together at their house up the road. I’m thankful that Youngest Son and Girl
With a Beautiful Heart are in Philadelphia, probably snowed in, but at least safe in their little tucked away apartment,
and that Oldest Son with His Ohio Heart Throb are home in their snug apartment, without any of the complications of
weather that we are experiencing. I’m grateful for a chance to chat with Youngest Daughter on Facebook and to “hear”
optimism in that exchange.
My heart is heavy, though, when I remember that Milford, DE, has a proportionately large homeless population. I pray
that there could be shelter given tonight for anyone who may be out in this storm. And once again, I give grateful praise
for God’s blessing to us, and for the way Certain Man has provided for me and our family. I’m thankful for warmth and
protection from the weather. I’m thankful for family and good memories and for this season when we remember
The Best Gift of All!
