I'm still powerless




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the continuing resourcefullness of the human spirit when under trying conditions

for all of the comments from you guys these past couple of days; I loves me blogger buddies

that we've had a cool front blow through town just after a major hurricane. It's lowered temperatures to a very coimfortable level considering we have no air conditioning.

for the 1000's of individuals who have arrived in southeast Texas from other states to help reconnect electricity and provide additional services

that Rodney and I are off to California tomorrow morning for the AA Roundup (convention). I may or may not take my laptop; I'm still undecided.
But considering the phrase below, hmmmmmmmmmmm....


Silent gratitude isn’t much good to anyone.

It sounds like a good time to go to a roundup. I'm really glad that things turned out good for you regarding the storm. And I think some of those cooler temperatures are coming this way by the end of the week.

Roses are like God. I cannot describe the smell of a rose to you but we can both know what a rose smells like. Smell the roses and smell God.

What AA roundup? I'm in CA these days and maybe I finally get to meet you.
