At times like this it is difficult to write about materialistic things, after all it’s just stuff. ¬†And as we know, way to well, down here in South Louisiana stuff can be replaced. Houses will be rebuilt, life as you knew it will slowly come back together {be patient and YES it will be very frustrating at times}. Communities will join hands and will be stronger than before. You will get through this, I promise, we did. And we continue to, as these terrible storms come ashore year after year.

For my friends on the east coast, we are thinking about you. And trust me we are all too familiar with the very raw emotions you are going through. At the end of the day it’s just stuff, so give thanks for those around you; your family, friends and support groups. And most importantly don’t forget to thank those first responders, energy workers, doctors and nurses who are working around the clock to get you put back together again.

  1. Awesome post! And so appropriate at this time.

  2. When I moved down to MS, some family friends of mine moved up to New Jersey at near the same time. Coming from a rural town in Illinois, we both never knew storms such as these. Luckily, between Isaac and now Sandy, we are both safe. I was more worried about them up there in Jersey because of how traumatic this storm is. No power, no heat, snow, ice! I would be more frightened of that than any Southern storm. I hope everyone can get through safely and warmly!

    • Glad your friends made out safely! I totally agree the snow and ice adds a much more complicated layer to these types of storms. Praying that the next few days are filled with sunshine for those affected on the east coast.

  3. Well said LG! This is all very familiar to us, a little too familiar! They do need to join hands, lean on one another, and stay strong. xoxo
