A Brighter Christmas

We got our power back Monday evening.  Even though I feel for those 17,000 or so families who are still without power, our Christmas will feel a little bit brighter this year.  Three and a half days without power, without water, reminds a person of just what luxurious lives we lead.  Flushing a toilet, washing a dish in warm water, taking a hot shower, seeing those thousands of twinkling little lights on all the Christmas trees -- there's  much to be thankful for.  I hope you all enjoy every little bit of your Christmas and New Year's Day.
