Haven't slept all night. Sitting here in the rainy dark with an earache throbbing in my head.
I had a shock this morning when voicing my own philosophy to myself: It could always be worse, so praise God it isn't!
I could be entombed in Haiti.
Puts everything in perspective.
Forgive my sometimes dismal outlook. I think so small sometimes. Here comes a giant bolt of lightning, and thunder cracks. It's awesome. After so long without rain, this storm system is magnificent! (Sudden thought: should I get off the computer?).
* My mother is well-housed and comfortable as she slides into Alzheimer's.
* I can just get in the car and drive to a doctor if I wish to, for treatment.
* I am warm and dry as a storm rages outside.
* God is answering prayers in Haiti. So many stupendous reports of His providence are on the internet. Read here how Kim and Patrick were able to slip through the jammed airport to meet their incoming supply plane.
