IN GRATITUDE FOR LIGHT



I FOUND MYSELF CRYING ALOUD AND PRAYING THANK YOU AFTER OUR LIGHTS, TELEVISION, RADIO AND HEAT SUDDENLY CAME ALIVE. I WAS THANKING GOD ALOUD BECAUSE IT FELT SO GREAT TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOWER, VIEW A TV SHOW AND JUST STARE AT THE FACES OF MY ROOMIES. GRATITUDE IS SUCH A COMFORTING FEELING. AS I HAVE AGED AND BECOME A BIT DISABLED WITH SPINE SURGERIES, A DARK HOUSE IS MUCH MORE CHALLENGING. I CONCLUDED DURING THE BLACK OUTS THAT I HAVE NOT BEEN GRATEFUL ENOUGH FOR LIGHT. IN FACT THAT LAST OUTAGE COMPELLED ME TO WRITE A LIST OF ALL THE COMFORTS I FAILED TO SHOW GRATITUDE FOR IN THE PAST LIKE,ICE, WARM MEALS; A REFRIGERATOR, A LIGHT FOR READING AND OPEN DOOR IN WHOLE FOODS GROCERY; SHELVES OF OVERFLOWING GOODS; A LAND PHONE LINE THAT WORKS,OPEN GAS STATIONS AND LOUD GLARING PROMOTIONAL LIGHTS THAT DECORATE OUR STREETS ALL YEAR LONG. BLESSINGS TO WE CALIFORNIA FIRE DWELLERS—WE NEED TO WORK TOGETHER TO SOLVE THIS DILEMMA OR SUFFER THE PREDICTIONS OF ALL THOSE OFFICIALS WHO DECLARE WE HAVE TEN MORE YEARS OF INCREDIBLE LIFESTYLE ADJUSTMENTS.
