Storms Give Us Strength

Today was the calm after the storm.  We were in the path of a hurricane yesterday which brought alot of destruction to our island.  Electrical power is still out in many areas since yesterday, roads are washed completely away. Huge caverns appear where only yesterday morning, highways existed.  Heavy flooding has left many homeless with properties in ruin and windswept landscapes have left fallen trees with mass lawn erosions.  The fury of nature can be seen everywhere. 

Our hearts go out to the family of our lone fatality....such a terrible loss!

Today however brought rainbows, blue skies and calm seas........

Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are.



For those of us who have lived with CANCER, there have been many a stormy day to endure.....but just like yesterday's hurricane, there will be calmer days ahead so stay strong and you WILL whether the storm!!!
