How have you been, Paul? I've been busy with work, and now "floating" since I decided to leave my hometown FD (personal reasons are behind it, I'll leave it at that). However, I pray every day that I'll "land" elsewhere in the near future because I'm not ready to give up being an EMT yet. I pray God's peace and blessings remain with you always, my Brother-in-Arms and my Brother in Christ.
Thanksgiving was very good this year, and rather quiet as far as calls are concerned. Grandma made excellent turkey with all the fixins, and let's not forget the antipasto (being an Italian grandma, she always makes sure to provide appetizers before the main meal! LOL). Does your department do anything special for Christmas? We have our Christmas party Friday night; just hoping no one's too hung over for when Santa makes his annual visit to headquarters on Saturday morning.
Please pray that we will all enjoy taking Santa around town in his sleigh and God will have His Hand on all of us so we will not have any injuries or accidents and everyone gets back safely at the end of the day. Take care and be safe!
Hope you had a safe and happy Thanksgiving this year, and you are currently having a blessed Advent. May the Lord grant you extra-special graces as you prepare for the memorial of His birth in Bethlehem and await His second coming at the end of time.
Glad to know you were well outside of Virginia. Very thankful your turtle tank didn't topple over. We're getting drenched by Irene right now and have already had two hits for the FD since a little after 1:30 a.m. Hopefully you're staying safe right now with the hurricane passing over. Saints Florian and Michael, I pray you'll have Paul's back.
Hi Christine. Thank you for your concern. I was in CT on vacation during the earthquake. Just a few little things got knocked over. I'm just happy the turtle tank didn't topple. St Florian, please watch over and pray for Christine....
Hope everything's okay down there, especially after the earthquake that happened in Mineral, VA earlier this afternoon. Praying that our Lord, St. Florian, and St. Michael all have your back if you're going out to help any injured people or battle blazes.
