The morning after Hurricane Irene

I took this photo the morning after Hurricane Irene.  My family and friends were very blessed and fortunate to have made it through this storm unscathed.  There were a few lives taken and many homes and businesses destroyed.  My heart and prayers go out to all those people who suffered loss.

In the midst of a storm is when we realize how small we are.  It’s easy to get caught up in the media frenzy along with the depressing stories and photos of devastation….. it’s then we need to stop…..take a look around us…..even if we have to actively search …..there’s beauty and blessings to be found!  Cindy
