THANK YOU ... Safe in Puerto Rico

Isabel, Giovanna - Isaac and Lydia

Thank you to all who held our family close in thought and prayers over recent days, here and on Facebook.  My daughter in law, Giovanna has at last made contact with her grandparents and learned they are safe and well.  As are other family members.
Below, in her own words, from her Facebook posting ... Above, a photo of them together during a visit earlier this year.
The community at large, in Puerto Rico, is still in need of prayer as they face a very long road of recovery.


"I feel like a huge cloud has been lifted off of me. My cousin went and saw my abuelos today!! They are absolutely fine!! I don't think I've ever so much as I have cried this week and just tears of joy when I hear loved ones are ok. I'm so incredibly thankful for all of your prayers. I feel so overwhelmed right now. I also heard from my Titi Raquel and Tio Oscar (my mom's baby brother and best friend) and they are also ok.
My abuelos house didn't have any flooding or damage BUT yes, he lost an avocado tree. We won't talk about the avocado tree because I'm sure I'll hear about the avocado tree for the rest of my life:):) but I wouldn't have it any other way! I love you abuelo"

  1. Thank goodness, Ann, I'm relieved for you all. I'd been wondering if I should email you directly to ask if there was news, then wondered if that was overstepping...(overthinking it!). So I'm glad you posted. Continued prayers (and purrs) to All Beings affected.
