It is raining and 50º outside. I stopped at the store on my way home from church and bought the stuff to make chili. It is now cooking. I need to go to the hospital and do some chart audits for a few hours. When I get home I will plant myself on the sofa and watch a Broncos game. I am just done canning peaches. I still have some left, but cannot muster the strength to peel one more peach. I feel wasteful, but I have only so much energy and so much time...
So much comfort when so many people are suffering. How I wish I could do something for my friends (and family) in Texas. I keep checking their blogs, hoping for an update. I pray their electricity is back on soon and they can carry on with their lives.
And I don't even worry that any of my sober friends got drunk. I hope they had some fellowship to comfort them and that maybe they could get to a meeting or two. But even in the absence of fellowship or meetings, we tend to stay sober in the crises of life. Thank God.
3:32 PM MDT Update: Scott W. just called from Waco. He is safe and sound and comfortable there, waiting for the power to be restored to his home in Houston before he returns. He thanks everyone for their prayers and sends his love.
