I am very thankful that our home got through the recent flood event in our area of Colorado with nothing more than a little water in our basement. Many in neighboring towns were not so lucky and are now dealing with the loss of their home or business and in some cases the loss of life. There have been eight people reported who lost their life in the storms and there are still six people missing. The news has moved on to other things while the recovery and clean up has just begun in many Colorado towns. My heart goes out to those who are struggling to recover.
As the say on the news...and now on a very different note, my family has had a flood of birthdays just before and during the our week of rain.
My grandson Wil turned 8
My grandson Beck turned 3
He has a couple of more weeks in his cast...I think he will miss it just a little once he gets it off.
I have an ice cream cake in my freezer waiting until we can celebrate birthdays for my son and oldest daughter. My son was stranded in his neighborhood by the floods on the day we had planned to celebrate. I have been wondering if they would notice a couple of pieces missing if I lose control of myself before we can finally get together.
