six smiles.

Superstorm Sandy dominated the news here on the East Coast this week.  My heart and prayers go out to those whose worlds were devastated by the storm.  May we all pull together as one to help those affected rebuild their homes and lives.  Time marches on even when we want to press the “stop” button, and so we muster up the strength to move forward through crises.  Life has a way of making you keep looking forward and searching for reasons, albeit rare at times, to smile.

Our town weather Sandy fairly easily in comparison to others, and we found time to take a walk when the winds let up.  Puddles and boots!
