Blessings through the storm

For many years my hometowns of Bluffton and Hilton Head Island, SC have been spared the devastating effects of hurricanes.  Recently, however, Hurricane Matthew decided to pay us a visit.  Praise God – all is well with my family and community – although there is still a bit of repairing to do.  Isn’t it peculiar how in the worst of times, the best can be realized?  The storm allowed my two beautiful sisters and their children stayed with me for a week.  I don’t think we realized how much we missed each other until we were together; the bonding time was much needed.  I urge everyone to tell others that you love them, every chance you get.
