Everybody Has a Story

Little did I know when I spoke for the Golden Triangle Writers Guild, 9/9, that we'd be evacuating ahead of Hurricane Ike on 9/11.

I talked about journaling events, writing memiors from journals and keeping family history. Did you journal your experiences during Ike? If not, it's not too late to catch up. Your memories, empressions and reactions are important.

Update those notes.

My home was not damaged. I was blessed to be safe at my brother's in Lake Charles. The biggest challenge I faced was boredem waiting for the power to be restored.

Since returning to Beaumont, I've assisted in tree and limb removal and am now working with Baptist Disaster Relief cooking meals that are served by the Red Cross.

I agree! I think we should all share our stories and compile a book- I bet it'd be great.

Thanks so much for stopping by yesterday. It meant the world to me. Take care and see you soon.

God bless you and I am glad you are o.k. I thought of all my writing friends while evacuated but couldn't make myself write.

Laurie has such a great idea about compiling a book.
