I was watching the Today show (like I do almost every morning) and for the past few days they have been providing on-scene coverage of the major destruction of Hurricane Sandy. It truly is heartbreaking to see the destruction that has come to the north east. I can remember last spring when my parent's house's basement (where my room was!) flooded from a failed sump pump, and I thought THAT was horrible!
I am proud to say that I am grateful for the safety that my family (near and far) and I have. My parents and extended family back east (mostly Ohio and Indiana) are safe and sound, they just got some unexpected snow. I'm so thankful that they weren't harmed in the "storm of the century" and my husband and I are praying for those back east.

I see the faces of those who have lost everything and it is so hard to watch, I just want to cry! Things are going to get better, you just have to hold on and have faith that everything will work out. If you have friends and/or family that were impacted by this "storm of the century", I hope that your loved ones are safe and sound.
