Hey y’all! We are still here …. a lot has happened since my last post and I do apologize for not keeping in touch with everyone. A big ‘Thank You’ to those who have messaged me via Facebook, Twitter, and/or email to check on us. I have not been able to check emails, messages, or respond to everyone as our internet has not been working properly.
Sometimes life happens so fast that you just have to flow with it and trust God’s plan. Things came together really quickly for us and I had to take a bit of time to focus on my family and other issues that were happening around us.
We have been so very busy with so many things since I last posted. Some of our biggest adventures have been remodeling a house, moving to said house, and then being in the midst of a natural disaster within a week of moving.
We are in an area that was hard hit by Hurricane Irma. I think most of Florida was hard hit, some areas harder than others, as well as some portions of neighboring states. It was, and still is, a very intense experience and we are so very thankful and blessed to have come through it without much damage.
Unfortunately that is not the case for many of our neighbors and other Floridians who live around us. If you’ve seen the news lately I am sure you have been inundated with pictures of the mass devastation and flooding that Irma left behind. I can say from first hand experience that these pictures don’t even begin to show the losses that so many are going through.
As of this morning many areas around us are still waiting for the rivers to crest and are evacuating as the rivers continue to reach record levels. People have lost or will lose everything and many of them have even lost loved ones. Friends and family are anxiously awaiting word from some of the hardest hit areas where there has been little or no communication from anyone yet.
I thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for all of those affected by these latest storms (Harvey and Irma) and for your thoughts and prayers for myself and my family.
I will post again soon as we continue to settle in and find a bit of normalcy here with our lives.
