We have been hit hard with high winds in the North East US, resulting in major power outages. Two days without internet, phone or cell reception has been an interesting experience. As a good friend reminded me, “We are lucky to have this first world problem.” But I do miss being able to reach out easily to others.
Its all about perspective and being grateful for this time and what is within our control. I get to slow down, read and accept, and remind myself of the Serenity Prayer. Don gets to embrace his pioneer spirit, taking charge of the homestead, wife and animals.
The power is still not back on, but thankfully we have a generator which can take care of heat, light and refrigeration…. and my computer.
I’m looking forward to catching up and connecting again.
