Much to celebrate…

Today I Celebrate The Small Things that really aren’t so small.

I celebrate that with all the flooding in the midlands of South Carolina
people have come together to help each other in any way they can,
with food, water and shelter, assisting with cleaning up, hugs and listening ears.
Whatever is needed there is someone there ready and willing to help.

I celebrate that though we are under a boil water advisory we do have water.
It’s kind of weird to see all the flood waters and still have the possibility of no
water in the pipes coming into our homes and businesses.

I celebrate that all of this area has power and no one is in the dark tonight.

I celebrate the resilience of the human body.
After having a severe reaction to an antibiotic last week
I am now on the mend and expect to be fully recovered in a few days.

I celebrate the friends who help me in spite of very busy schedules.
This week one friend went to the store for me bringing me
needed groceries and water and another gave me a ride
to and from the doctor.

 I celebrate friends who are more family than friends.
Without these people who share their love with me,
my life would be empty, lonely and sad.


There is a lot to be thankful for here at Patricia’s Place!

There is flooding now in the lower and coastal regions of South Carolina.
It is expected to take up to two weeks for the waters to recede.
Please keep these folks in your thoughts and prayers
along with all the first responders and emergency teams.

    1. Thank you for the prayers. I am sorry I am so late in responding, I seem to be a bit ditzier than usual and behind in so many things.

    1. Thank you, Annie. The last week has been difficult, but I have so much to be thankful for. There are really no small blessings, some are just quieter than others.
