Thankful.

I do have to take a moment away from the crafts, decorating and Pinterest posts to say, “Thank You.”

Our little beach towns here were spared huge destruction from Hurricane Sandy.  Just an hour north is a completely different story.  We still have our homes, businesses, family and friends.  I can’t imagine losing everything you have.

A day after the storm I got word that one of my coworkers was not as lucky.  When the flood waters came up, they destroyed his first floor home he shares with his wife and three little girls.  Knowing they needed everything I posted on Facebook for help.  Who knew the power of social media.  In less than 24 hours we had clothing, shoes and supplies for every member of the family and gift card donations to help them get back on their feet.  It is amazing what can happen when people come together.
