Unification Theory

I miss my early am walks by the lake with my Dad. I miss being able to run out the door, hop in the car, and get to work without thinking about how long it will take to dig my car out. I miss my second bathroom that is disabled until the pipes thaw out.

However, I'm really enjoying the "we're-all-in-this-together" attitude at home, work, and the neighborhood. Once we were into the third, fourth, fifth, and snowmageddon storms this winter, my husband and son just got up and handled the digging-the-car-out thing before I asked. Last time, my son came in and told me that our neighbors were all out and told him to wait until the plow came through again to dig out the end of the driveway. At work, we all celebrated because our colleague from Germany managed to fly home to Frankfurt on THURSDAY during the storm, in time to take his wife to a concert in Stuttgart that they had been anticipating since Christmas.

Every once in awhile Nature hits us upside the head with the oneness of existence on this planet. Thanks.
