Wishing On A Northern Star
hello everyone. I am in Gulfport, and I don't know what else to say at this point, but....
I have learned SOOO much from all that is going on around me right now. I have extremely limited internet access, but wanted to say hello to everyone.
Will everyone just PLEASE pray for our community, State, and Federal leaders right now? There seems to be an an issue with organization, but things are still getting to where they need to go, thank goodness. I give our military most of the credit for that one at this point.
I consider myself to be one of the lucky ones to have water, power, and a place to stay right now. The water was on a few days after, and the power just came on today. It was scary not knowing when things would begin to happen.
The apartment where I was staying with a roomate didn't fare so well. The roof caved in on a portion of the place. (I wasn't there, thankfully) On the positive side, my important belongings were not damaged. I'll still have pictures to show my children some day. Of course I got ALL of my poetry and anything to do with any of my writing out to begin with.
We still have a long way to go here in Gulfport. I am ready to get back to work (a week off is plenty for me)or get out there and volunteer my time. It was very odd to have so much news for a week and not be able to see any of it. I didn't know anything beyond what we heard on the radio or what we heard from around the neighborhood.
The amazing thing is support from other states.
I am sure there are lots of others I haven't noticed yet.
Pray for us!
I think I'll go for now and see if I have some time to go exploring.
KAREN! I tried to call at some point during all of this, but the phone lines are an absolute nightmare as I am sure you know. I've been worried about you, and it is certainly a relief to come here and read that you are safe!
