Welcome to this new Gratitude Friday! Feel free to share with me your (partial or full) gratitude moments in the comments; that way I can hold joy for you ✿ (you know that makes me happy to make you happy).
This week sucked big time. I was impatient to be able to sit down and write down my Gratitude though; it’s a practice I forced on my husband & daughters.
On Monday, I started a new day job. I was underground for about 9 hours and had no idea what was happening outside. I knew icy rain was announced but when I got out, I discovered that icy rain fell hard, covered our trees and their branches and these broke under the heavy weight. Electric cables were cut, about 300,000+ homes in Québec were suffering from a power outage. We lost power from Monday at noon until Thursday mid-afternoon… I hurt my back and my hand heavily at work, as well.
This week, I am thankful for:
- Having a home without damage on it
- My family
- Hot meals
- A warm bed to sleep in
- Trying things
- Sending Love packages
- New opportunities to do what I truly love
- We are alive
Oh my that’s quite a week!
When I was first in Georgia, that first winter we had 2 ice storms a week apart. And we too lost power both times, but only for hours not days. Though at the time it felt like eternity. I was grateful we had a gas fireplace and a gas stove.
Hope your hand feels better.
Clearly, when our stove dies, it will be back to gas for us as this one is completely electric. When in BC, we had an outage that lasted 32 hours, this one was double that. The worst, in this case, is not knowing when things will get better.
I will see a specialist for my hand and hopefully it will come back to normal, typing when the fingers are numb is such a strange sensation 😉
What a week, lovely. <3 I'm so glad the power is back on and things are getting back to normal. What's your new job??
I am glad the week is over. It’s crazy how much we rely on electricity for everything and now, I wanna be more of a doom-prepper lol
New job was (yes… past tense :() in the mass food preparation industry.
I’m so glad you got power back!
me too 😀
