Welcome to Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper.With Thanksgiving just a few days away, it is a time that we all stop to reflect on just how fortunate we are.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, those of us on the Eastern Seaboard seem to have just that much more to be thankful of.
It is interesting that in this day when every industry seems to be finding technological ways of accomplishing much, and we seem to get caught up in the tide that machines can accomplish all…
…that when disaster strikes you realize just how important humans are.
It is individuals who have taken their time to donate and volunteer and just help each other.
I live in suburbia with my neighbors so close to me, but weeks can go by without me seeing them, let alone chatting with them.
During our ten days without power we saw a whole lot more of our neighbors. We stopped, we chatted, we borrowed outlets to power our gadgets we can’t seem to live without, we borrowed refrigerator space,we did loads of laundry in someone else’s laundry room while sharing a cup of tea in between loads, we shared meals.
I am thankful for my neighbors, friends and family who reached out to us during the storm. I am thankful for being a part of a community that has gone forth and shared of themselves.
I hope that you have a blessed Thanksgiving.
