Victims of Hurricane Sandy

 My thoughts today are with the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  I know that many blogging friends as well as family are struggling in the aftermath of this huge storm.
We were blessed here with only rain and gusty winds.  Unfortunately for so many that was not the case.
The simple task of making applesauce... 
baking a batch of cornmeal muffins...
or gathering a handful of fallen leaves should not be taken for granted.  
Life can be so uncertain.   Even the small things we do daily are great gifts.  
I am certain that those who have lost loved ones, homes, and a way of life to Sandy would agree. 
I am looking up for all who were caught in the storm - hope you will join me.  God Bless!

    I could put applesauce on almost everything.

    Glad your area missed the bad parts of the hurricane.
    Here in Vermont we didn't get much as well. Whew.
    I've been picking up leaves to press for winter art projects.
