Power can be something we strive to possess or it is something that "fuels" our life (as in electricity).
This last week I had neither.
I rarely have the first kind of power anyway but I (as well as most of my fellow Americans) have become quite dependent on electricity. This last week (from Sunday 3/20-Sunday 3/28) I experienced a life void of electricity.
Let me tell you, it was tough!
Add to that that we were displaced from our home because of the threat of falling trees as well as my third's 7th birthday and you can probably surmise the hectic, helter-skelter, scattered week we had.
A friend of mine asked how I felt being like Ma Ingalls; my response, " Ma Ingalls would never have had a freezer full of food to keep cool on top of all the other things."
All that to say, you'll understand where my "Multitudes on Mondays" list originated out of this past week.
