A Good Day
I stood in line to get into my grocery store today. Like most of the few stores that are open in this area, they are running on generator power, so there were minimal lights on in the store and only non-perishable items available in limited supply. They were only letting so many people in the store at one time, so when someone came out, they let the next person in. But I was able to get my much-needed prescriptions and a few basic items to keep our storm-stock going. We have no milk, no meat, no frozen foods, but we are eating and have plenty of bottled water (we are still under a boil-water restriction). I even have chocolate. Life is good.
I am a GRITS (Girl Raised In The South), a 3rd generation Texan with roots in Mississippi and Tennessee. I have a wonderful husband and three great kids - a son in the Navy, an daughter studying Theatre at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, and a son who plays trombone in the high school band. My mom is a three-time survivor of breast cancer - a disease that affects mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends - please click on the link below to help fund mammograms for women who can't afford them!
