Thirty Days of Thanksgiving: Day 2, Home

After watching the news coverage all week of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, I am so thankful to have a home.  We have four walls and a roof, and we are safe from the elements.  We have electricity.  To not have those things, with winter getting closer every day, well, I just can't imagine.  My heart goes out to all the people across the eastern seaboard that are affected by this storm.

Last year our little neighborhood saw both a tornado and a hurricane.  A house less than a half mile away had their roof ripped off by the tornado in the spring, only to have a tree fall on the new roof during the hurricane mere months later.  Another family down the road literally got out of their house minutes before the tornado ripped it to shreds.  They only had the clothes on their backs, their pets, and each other.
Does anything say 'home' like a candle on a mantel.
