I didn't hang on the computer yesterday. Instead my family indulged in one another for the entire day. We laughed, enjoyed a few funny movies and it was everything I wanted. Going through the day I thought back on how life was for us before Hurricane Katrina. Financially we struggled, our health care was not to be desired and the educational system was/still is non existent. But, above all of those things as a family we were just existing. Stress of it all strained our lives in so many ways. Our spirituality was hanging on by a thread.
Where we were during Katrina
Then, this horrific natural disaster happened. This catastrophic, yet beautiful life changing event happened.
I watched my husband and daughter laugh. They now live knowing that we are safe. We all know peace now. Hubby has a job that leaves him smiling and stress free. Our princess has too many friends for me to keep up with. Our health insurance is one of the best in Texas (Thank God!) and spiritually ...where do I even begin!
I/we have always known God, but before Katrina I don't think we truly had faith. Not enough of it at least. Now, we gravitate toward Him 24/7 and FAITH is like a second language to us all.
I sat in my room and watched my family LIVING, BEING, JOYFULLY ENJOYING Life. That overwhelms me in the greatest way! We have a beautiful apartment, clothing, food, delicious Sunny D ☺, we are NOT rich in any way (financially), but because of this natural disaster we were given a new start. THAT makes us rich beyond measure.
I love the second time around theme. Its sweet, caring, kind to us and it fills our spirits with joy. My family's now completely happy and stress free. Where does that leave me? In complete and total Bliss.
I Wish The Same For You All♥
