Gratitude During Aftermath Of Hurricane Laura

by Pamela T
(Jena , Louisiana )

We currently do not have any electricity in our parish due to hurricane Laura that has hit Louisiana.

My family has always teased me about how much I love to do laundry. Obviously with no electricity, I have no way to do so!

Yet, our very kind neighbor - who had the wisdom to install a home generator - asked if I’d like to do some laundry. Which I was more than happy to accept.

So now, thanks to our forward thinking and generous neighbor, I am able to do laundry even though our power is still down.

Sounds silly, maybe. But this kind act has kept my spirits up! Plus, now I have fresh smelling sheets and towels, which I love. Simple kindness, and simple pleasures.

Good for you for finding the simple pleasures!
by: Dr. DeFoore

Hi Pamela, and thanks for your fun story!

Many people don't realize how the simple pleasures in life can add up to much bigger joy, but your story shows clearly how that is indeed the case.

And, the kindness of your neighbor just adds the beauty to your account of gratitude and appreciation.

I like to be 'easily pleased,' for example. If you're easily pleased, you will find yourself pleased much more of the time, and less stressed with power outages and hurricanes.

So, keep on keeping on, with your enjoyment of something you can do on a regular basis.

All the best to you and your family,

Dr. DeFoore
