A Beautiful Day on Pisgah Mountain


My best friend Maggie and I took a day trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway to Pisgah Mountain today, to see the fall leaves which are beginning to turn.

 

My children were able to return to Lumberton, and they  have power, although no clean water except what they have been able to get in bottles and in buckets from their friends and the charities that are assisting after Hurricane Matthew’s devastation.

Yesterday, they helped served meals to the people who are homeless now.  My grandchildren are learning more about charity and compassion, from both sides of the equation.  I am proud that, even in hard times, my daughter and her family are able to give to others.

 

It helps me to take a moment to remember the beauty around us, so I wanted to share these photos with all of you, in gratitude for your thoughts and prayers for my family.

 

Namaste,

Barbara
