Angels Are Among Us

After the recent hurricane and snow storm in our area...
...there has been a tremendous response to those in need
  by family, friends and neighbors.


And not just by those that we know...or those in our community.
 A group of utility workers from California were outside our home,
 working in the cold in their shirt sleeves 
for days to bring us back power.
Thank you California guys!

The outpouring of love and offers of support by total strangers
 gives renewed faith in humanity...
...and strengthens our faith in God.

...and yet there are still those suffering and in great need.

This post is dedicated to those who have helped...
...and to those that are still helping.

Thank you.

Truly, there are angels among us.

No angels here at the beach on Long Island , sad to say. Our power company has not even inspected our area yet! They shrug and say 'months?'
Boy, I d be thrilled to see your california guys drive up, lucky you.

We do live in a country that pulls together to help each other. Love your 'take' on angel wings.

What a beautiful tribute to mankind. We must hold on to the positive ~ I know that our utility workers in Ontario headed out to New York to help. There are definitely angels among us ~

Great post! I continue to read about the 60,000 people in Long Island who still do not have electric and I feel so bad for them. It's so cold now and I wonder if they are staying in their homes or in shelters and how long it will be before they can have power.

A big thank you to all of the people who came and are still working to get things back to normal. :)

I love the feathers in the bottle and the angel wings! :)

There certainly are Laura's at these sort of times that everyone rallies round and help each other.
I am so sorry for all of the people who have lost their homes and precious possessions ...... I cannot even start to think what it must be like.
Here's to all of the helpers and supporters. XXXX

Beautiful post, Laura. We felt very much the same way during this past wildfire season. Definitely, there are angels among us.

in the form of sweet little birds?

Okio B Designs said...

Yes! They are angels. A crew from Georgia helped restore our power. Shout out to Sumter Utilities. God bless!


Divine Theatre said...

Members of my husband's police department have been sent to help as well.
I wish there was more I could do for those who have lost so very much. There has to be something more.
Do you know of any local charities that need help? Is there a local Humane Socity or shelter near you?



Kateyed said...

OH I believe in angels amoung us

us that have never gone through such an event have no idea I am sure.

I think of the people often especailly at night time for the super meal and every morning when I wake up in a warm house thinking could I stay in a cold house all night ?
