Things to be thankful for

We have been thankful all week. We are alive and free and not trapped in rubble. Our house survived. We have gas and we can feast on the freezer without guilt. The water is back on and we can boil it. We are adapting to life without power. We have petrol for the car and can visit friends to charge phone and relax. We are on holiday as we work in the cordon. We still have jobs. The frequent aftershocks are manageable. We are supporting the family through fear and stress. We are grateful for the support of the world and experts here. And yes, Jaz is going home. :)
