Yet, we are all still deeply affected by what happened below us in South Texas. We all have family, friends, and business associates located throughout these regions hit hard by the storm…especially in Houston. My nephew and his young family have lost everything. My esthetician cancelled our appointment dealing with family who lost everything in Rockport and areas of Houston. My brother and his wife came into town to our home for a bath, laundry room, decent meal and supplies to take back to a town which was hit hard. There is a deep, deep sadness in South Texas as we hear over and over again, “they lost everything.”
For people who have to start over and face great economic challenges, prayer is needed and long time support. Volunteers are needed. Also, what is needed in our country is a new commitment to love and support one another. We need to stop this angry vitrol that has grown so prevalent and look at the pictures of different people helping one another through flood waters. Maybe the aftermath of this giant storm which took so much from so many could actually be….unity, care and love. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
Keep Smiing and Caring, please…..
