Wow...what an amazing day. Days like today make me so thankful for family and friends. My family and friends are getting ready to face Ike as I am typing this. My heart and prayers go out to all of them. M and I have stated several times this hurricane season how happy we are not to be living there at this point in time but I still can't help but worry about those that do. I pray my friends and family remain safe and have homes to return to when this terrible storm passes.
