I did have a good snuggle and hug time with our oldest grandson Hugo. He told me 'Nana, we're going home today but in 2 days I'll come visit you again.' I wish. Or maybe...
So today was restful, peaceful, full of reading, writing, organizing my calendar, doing a few things pre-storm like mix new birdseed and fill all 4 of my bird feeders. You know, important things! Also reminded my FB friends to be sure pets are brought inside (probably preaching to the choir there). This very cold weather is a record breaker, at least in over ten years, we have not had it this cold (predicted cold). The northern plains have it even worse, with 25+ below zero.
So as I get into my comfortable bed tonight, in my flannel nightgown, and on my flannel sheets, in my warm home, I pray for all those who don't have shelter. I pray for all those who work outside in these conditions. And I give my thanks and praise to God for my blessings of warmth and shelter.
