Safety, Health, and Friendship

It’s Monday again — so soon after the last. (How does the weekend go so quickly?) Here are three beautiful things from the past week:

1. Hands down, my most beautiful thing of the week is the fact that my sister, brother-in-law, and his parents/grandma made it through Hurricane Ike unscathed beyond loss of electricity and minor property damage.

2. Coming in a close second is that my dear friend Joanne’s son arrived happy and healthy on Tuesday. Because of all the medical concerns at the end of her pregnancy, this wasn’t necessarily a given, so I am  relieved and happy for her and her family.

3. On Friday, I had to work late to get some important hurricane-related info up on the website before the weekend, entirely missing jazz at the Sculpture Garden. Though I know from personal experience that our picnics there are large enough to constitute dinner, the friends I stood up all met me for pizza afterward anyway.

Honorable mention: my TBT thread has been added to the “Roll of Honour” at the original Three Beautiful Things blog.

    Eileen and Chris have a heck of a story to tell someday too.

    I am slowly hearing from other friends in the Galveston area. Lots of damage but everyone is okay. It is a beautiful thing.

    Yay Joanne! I’m saving my pennies so that I can fly down to see the newest Mr. T as soon as possible!

    Good friends are a blessing. Mmmm pizza.

    You nailed the TBTs this week for all of us, I think! Eileen even commented on the friendliness and helpfulness of neighbors she had yet to meet. We had 45-50 mph winds last night and that was enough for me — can’t imagine magnified 2-3 times. WHEW…..
    And, congrats on making the “Roll of Honour”!!

    That’s a pretty amazing week :-). Double helping of good news…and good friends!! (And I’m also impressed Joanne has it together enough to blog…me, I was pathetic for literal months after having babies. The toddler stage and I were MUCH more agreeable!)
