Here's the news, folks:
I did NOT have a baby last night.
(Despite 10 hours of contractions and a hospital stay...)
There will be no NY marathon this weekend.
And there's still no power or gasoline to be had in Brooklyn, where taxis have been lined up at gas stations for days and many have lost their homes and all of their earthly possessions.
My dear friend Cherry still got to take her oath of citizenship in NYC yesterday!!
They couldn't print out her certificate, but she IS A US CITIZEN!
And I couldn't think of anyone who deserves it more...or who would appreciate it more.
Despite hardships...despite a LOT of hard work, she is living the American dream...
It's still alive, people!
We need to cherish it and all of the many blessings that are ours only by of the grace of God.
I am so proud of you Cherry!
(What are you guys thankful for today...in spite of it all?)
