On Sandy, Other Things

Hope you’ve had a great week!  It has been a while since I have written.  Things have been busy!

And now this week, 1/3 of the country is dealing with Hurricane Sandy.  This massive storm has been quite amazing so far.  Rain, snow, wind, flooding are the things we will be dealing with.

My prayers are with all of those in her path.  I just hope and pray that the damage won’t be too extensive and there won’t be deaths or major injuries.

Seeing the New York subway system shut down and Wall Street close today are items that rarely ever happen.  You know things are serious when that happens.  And, the airports up the east coast are closed and many flights cancelled.

Last night on the news, with all of the coverage of the storm, they included a story about Halloween and if it will still happen.  I thought that was funny and quite touching that people are still wanting to have life go on as it normally does, despite such a mess.

Lord, keep us safe!

Last night I had the first good sleep I’ve had in a few nights.  Ian has been waking me up each night and staying up for a while, so needless to say, neither of us has been getting much sleep.

These nights made me think of when he was a few months old and sleep was very hard to come by.  Those days and nights were difficult and it was trying to be back to that again.

Thankfully this odd schedule didn’t last very long.  I realize that I need my sleep — at least 7 hours each night to function and to be nice the next morning.

If you are having trouble sleeping, I too hope that you can find some answers very soon!

Over the weekend, I read an update about Malala Yousafzai, and heard about her on the news as well.

Have you heard about her?  This amazing 15-year-old girl was shot in the head by for advocating girls’ education.  She is in England recovering from her injuries. The hospital announced that she was able to stand for the first time and that she is communicating freely and that she is writing.

I was stunned to hear about her and how and why she was shot.  How can it not be okay for girls to learn?  That just isn’t something I can understand but is a reality for so many around the world.

What a brave girl.  I hope and pray that she gets a great education.  And, let us not take that for granted.  Being able to learn and go to school — whether at a school or at home — is a real gift and something that should be appreciated.

Those are just a few of the items on my mind today.  I will be sharing more in the coming week.  May God bless you in your day and keep you safe!
