Today is a week ago that I wrote about feeling at home.
These three words are stuck in my head right now, because the people in Queensland who are affected by the enormous flooding will not say this for a long time…
Even though the sun is shining there,
the river is still rising higher, claiming everything in it’s path….
I couldn’t stop thinking yesterday about the mothers who have lost their children….
People died and more people are still missing….
Homes are being flooded with river water, possessions are floating around in it….
People are fleeing the area, waiting in rescue centres…..
It is happening on the other side of the world,
but since I started blogging with some ladies from Australia,
I feel connected with them in their grief and worries.
My thoughts go out to Natasha. A week ago she was saying that the water was in the Northern parts of Queensland, but I know that Brisbane, where she lives, is now flooded too… I hope you are safe!
So like my blog friend Jane, who lives in Tasmania, my thoughts and prayers are with the people who are affected. Please read Jane’s post so you can see how big the area is…. For people in Europe,
last week ‘it was bigger than France and Germany combined…’
And like Jane, I feel for A-M.
She had to leave her beloved home to safe herself and her boys,
I will leave you with a link to her post; I’m glad they are safe…
And while I sit here typing in a country far away,
I feel even more grateful to still have a house
where I can feel at home…
