Friday ~

Courage is grace under pressure.  Be kind, 
be thoughtful, be genuine, but most of all be thankful...

Every morning as I wake up I check messenger.  Living in
  Branson my parents and 2 of my sisters are an hour ahead of us.  
There always send good morning wishes and we fool around
 a bit before each of us "takes off" to do what we have to do.

Rima lives in a completely different time zone so she sees
 the messages long after we have been chatting for a while.
 Then there is Norway.  Norway is now seven hours ahead
of us in Branson and six when we are in Florida.

Imagine my surprise when I checked messenger this morning
 and the first and only message was from Michelle.  My step
 daughter and mother of our two adorable grand daughters.
  The message was brief, but it warmed my heart.

She wanted to know if I was in any danger from Florence, as
 in Hurricane Florence I'm still feeling good and smiling thinking 
of her.  I love her, and right now I am feeling loved as well.

Hurricane Florence is making big news around the world.
Norway is keeping an eye on it, but what matters the most is
the text I received this morning from that special girl named
Michelle.  She cares enough and that has made me happy.
The best start of my otherwise gloomy day.  Yes, it's dark
and has been raining everyday here in Fort Lauderdale.

Sniff and I are doing good.  We are not in the path of Hurricane Florence.
For all of those who are just know everyone is praying for you to
be safe.  Today I go again to the movies.  I really missed going
to movies while in Branson.In the almost 2 years we have
 been there we went once.  Never had the time.

Wishing everyone a great start of the weekend.
Just remember, to say a little prayer for those less fortunate
 than us.  As you may know, the things we take
 for granted, someone else is praying for.

  Hurricanes are like women.  When they come they are wet
 and wild,  but when they leave they take your house and car...
