From Cleveland, TX (Houston Area)

I am still pulling up floors and getting rid of “stuff”. I did not have content damage that I am aware of. I am going through my “things” to send to Goodwill. I have to minimize my “thing” inventory. Bill and I are trying to alieve ourselves of unnecessary items. At this point in my life, I am only keeping special mementos and pictures.

Emotionally I have things that I have kept with me for over 40 years. Moving them with me and packing them away for “later”. Later has not happened. It is time for them to give memories to someone else.

I am almost in tears writing this. That fact indicates to me that I have transferred my personal significance to “things” and need to let go so I can allow myself to live as me and not as family “things” or my collected “things”.

I live in the Houston Area, but my thoughts and prayers are with the people in the path of  IRMA.

Have a good day and Sweet Dreams tonight as you slumber.
