A few years ago during a drought condition, we had a brush fire that destroyed hundreds of homes east of Oklahoma City. A state bank that does a lot of home loans especially FHA and VA asked me to go to Luther Oklahoma to see if any of their homes were damaged or destroyed that they had loans on. The city really went up in flames but I had to stop by this picture of someone who had lost everything in their home with total destruction handled the disaster. When I shot the picture I thought of the book about not sweating the small stuff, it's all small stuff and I wonder if I could handle a loss like this with the same amount of humor, black though it is. At this time of the season when we are expressing gratitude, think about this homeowner, and realize how blessed so many of us are. I am less angry today just writing this. merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of us, and le't count our blessings one by one.
