As I look out my front window I can see the second house from the corner as you turn left off my street. The house lost its complete top half in the tornado on November 17th. There is a lovely perfectly shaped pine tree that sits in the corner of the front yard. The neighbors across the street have decorated the tree beautifully with lights and ornaments, As I travel down the street I run across the heavy duty extension cord from across the street which is keeping the tree lit up. It is so beautiful that it brings tears to my eyes. I think of myself being upset over the fact that my kitchen window is still boarded up and then I think about the people who were displaced by the tornado that lost their homes and prized possessions. I remind myself with tears in my eyes that God has been good to me this year. He has held my hand through so many trials this year and I am so very thankful! I am thankful for my family and my friends who held my hand tightly too and held me up to keep me from giving up and falling down.
I am off this afternoon for an appointment with the ENT surgeon and my oncologist. Have a blessed weekend. Stay safe and be happy!!
I love you all!
