Day 17,191 Gratitude: Relief

The wind blew.  The rain fell.  The gloom persisted.  I tried to cheer myself up with some coloring in my journal.  As I scribbled and smeared, doors and windows appeared.  It dawned on me how lucky we are here in southwestern Ohio to be directly impacted so little by something so big.  I felt a wave of gratitude for my solid home, stocked cupboards, and responsive furnace ... for the electricity and clean water that flow as needed, so often taken for granted.  I didn't have to wonder or worry today about these or graver things ...  but a lot of people did and will for awhile.  The only thing I can say is help if you can.
