Taking Things for Granted.
I am sure in 2 weeks when I am fully powered up again I will take it all for granted. The telephone, internet, flushing toilet, running water, heat, washing machine, dryer, coffee in an instant and all the other wonderful essentials I take for granted every day. We are still without power. I am thankful for heat from our wood stove, generator and very generous family members with power. (I am at Kara's right now.) There are many people in shelters so I know we have it good. Our boys have had no school since the storm...rumor has it next week may be the same. Kevin has been out of work this week. We cut down 30 birch trees and cleared them out - our house looks completely different! The boys have enjoyed spending time with friends and cousins. I think this is something they will never forget - I know I won't.
