Power outage

I thought it would be dicey getting the blog together tonight, because
the power was out where we are, when I wrote it.  It had been off
for hours. Steven and I affirmed that it would come on when we came
back with our take out dinner, and Woo Hoo! It did.  It was a beautiful day,
and we had planned to figure out a way to stay warm. Luckily, it’s only
6 below Celsius, so we thought all might be well. (And it is!)

I was planning to try and get a snow scene on for you tonight, because
at the moment snow is a huge, and really beautiful feature in the landscape
where we find ourselves.  But as the power is back on, which feels like
a miracle, I'll show you a sketch I did today. 

Have a loving your life day.

Talk about the power of affirmation. I am absolutely amazed.

Hi Steven,

That was amazing wasn't it? Affirming that the power would come back
on when we got back to the hotel, driving by and seeing the entire building
in darkness, and returning 15 minutes after our affirmation to see the
lights on after hours of no power!

It was awesome.
