… A good thing to remember is somebody’s got it a lot worse than we do …

My daughter lives in California, in Hidden Valley Lake. Maybe that sounds familiar to you? It should, if you have seen the news reports about the Valley Fires. My daughter and her family were evacuated and we’re told they have 30 mins to leave from there home. The home that they just moved into last year. The home that is  ” up in the mountains” and an hour away from the job. The home where all their belongings were left behind, old photos, jewelry, piggy banks, new bedroom furniture, computers and more.  When the fires came, first they lost the electric, next came the shower of ash and fire and then came the fire department mandating evacuations. The escape was rushed until all 100,000 neighbors hit the same road out and it turned into a  slow, traffic clogged, and frightening experience. I, living on Long Island NY was on the phone with Jenny in California and relaying messages to my boyfriend Andy, via Skype in England. At one point Andy and I lost communication from Jenny and we sat in silence praying that all will turn out well. 40 mins of hell, each of us afraid to say “what if…” to each other. Andy, my brave partner in all things; kept saying it will be alright, don’t get upset. He kept me from absolutely loosing my mind while I waited and waited and waited to hear the magic words ” we made it Mom, we are all ok. We made it out”.  Those simple words were loaded with a lifetime of gratitude beyond belief. The loss of “things” no longer mattered, but life was the fortune. I prayed again, this time in thanks. The next day my point of view on the day was different. I looked at my life with new eyes and thoughts. I could of lost my daughter and family to a fire. Worse yet, I was to far away to do a damn thing about it. If it wasn’t for my Andy and his calm demeanor I would be lost. I am overwhelmingly blessed. Until next time…
