These past few weeks have been difficult for many people, whether it was because of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, the many fires out west, Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean and Florida, the earthquake in Mexico or another hurricane called Maria that slammed into Puerto Rico and nearby islands, some for a second time in just a couple of weeks. Irma left devastation in her wake that will, in many cases, take years to rebuild and replace. A great many people in my area were without power for days and have finally returned to their homes happy to flip on a light switch. There are no longer long lines of cars waiting to fill up with gas however the grocery stores still have empty cases that usually hold chilled meats and fish. Life feels much more normal for us once again. But I will say the anxiousness remains even though the area around us is in repair, yet there are so many other lives that continue to feel the effects of the calamity from the powerful forces of nature.
