MY PRAYERS FOR ALL...
UGH! WHERE'S THE SUN?
5-3/4 x 10-1/4"
First of all, I want to tell all Irene hurricane victims
all future hurricane victims yet to come...
that you are in my prayers.
You are a strong people!
You endure so many hardships with valor and courage.
I am amazed to witness the energy and bravery that the American people have.
Who said that Americans are wimps? Huh!!!!
I am the wimp!
Yes, I admit it and it's ok to be a wimp.
I was brought up in the Arizona blazing desert.
Beautiful blue and treeless mountains surrounded my home.
There were saguaros, roadrunners, and everything crawly that is from the desert.
As a child I loooooovvvveeeeeddddd riding my bike under these extreme conditions.
I always thought that most of the United States was cloaked in this hot and sleepy environment.
Never did I imagine that so much adversity existed in most of the United States.
After I became a truck driver with my husband we began to visit our wonderful nation.
I discovered that we literally had to play a dodge game just to get across the nation
without getting hit by some extreme weather!
Ouch! Was that a rude awakening.
What amazed me back then and now is that people do not move from their birth land
just because of adverse weather.
They stick it out no matter what mother nature brings their way.
I'm still amazed because at this moment I live in an area that gets hit by extreme weather,
I find myself
ALL THE WAY HOME.... :)
Yes, talk about being a wimp.
So my deep respect and love to the majority of the Americans that suffer and endure
no matter what living conditions they may find themselves in.
It also tells me that the family bond is NOT dead.
We continue to want to be near our loved ones, no matter what life may bring our way.
Fortunately to me my native land is Arizona
God willing I will be there once again this year.
this time I will not budge.
My love to you all and may God bless you.
