Love the bits of collage, the soft pink background, the adorable little girl, and the flower used to dot the letter 'I". So delightful.

I love New Jersey. It truly is a Garden State. Friends and family still live there. I don't think there ever was a hurricane when I lived in New Jersey. I always worried about them in Florida and Texas where my husband and his parents then lived, and of course the other Gulf States. Every year we prepare for it. Our disaster teams are in place days before landfall. We have learned so many lessons from past hurricanes and tropical storms one of which shut down our hospital with flooding. We literally had medical technologists swimming in the basements towards the exit when the basement was filled with water. We transferred over 200 patients to other hospitals without incidents, carrying them in beds down the stairs from twelve floors. There is always loss of lives, homes and properties. Hurricanes are devastating and humbling. They can also break human spirits if allowed. I think that is why Filipinos have a fatalistic and superstitious attitude with an uncanny sense of humor about most things because every year they rebuild and then get destroyed and rebuild again. Filipinos make a joke while fleeing to safety as their homes get engulfed by water or blown away by the wind. But this is America. We have massive structures, big buildings, first world technology and superb mass transit, all of which could not withstand the force of nature. It is very difficult for us to see that in New Jersey and New York and especially NYC. The weather added insult to injury. Last night my sister went home after a long shift at the hospital to a cold apartment. The power was out again and she slept in 30-degree temperature. The storm is a very difficult and painful lesson but I believe our sisters and brothers will survive. Americans, are the world's default rescuers and always ready to help others. The storm can destroy property but they cannot let it break their will and spirit. It's easy for me to say but I personally know it is painful. Sending love to you and your family, dearest Vee. Tsup!
