It's About the Weather!
On Monday morning after the horrible train passed over the house, I looked out to see Sam, a beautiful Golden Retriever in the driveway. He looked traumatized. I opened the fence gate hoping that he wouldn't run away, and he didn't. He walked right in. Luckily, Sam was wearing a collar with his owner's telephone number. When I called, the lady said that he had run out into the night after their home was destroyed by falling trees. She came yesterday afternoon to "retrieve" Sam, and he was such a happy dog. He was relieved to see his family was OK, and, though I'll miss him, I'm so glad that he's been reunited with his forever family as they are already beginning to rebuild from square one.
I'm sure there are countless stories across this area that are very similar. Life is once more put into perspective. It's not about the house. It's about family and all that word enfolds. Life...so fragile.
