Watching the devastation and tragic events of “Harvey” brought more than a few tears I dare say. But then, you either saw or heard of the amazing rescues and helping hands of the first responders, the neighbors, friends and relatives, community leaders and strangers from others states and your faith was restored. When the Cajun Navy rolled down the highway in their pick-ups pulling their john boats, a smile and the words to one of my favorite Carole King songs filled my mind:
“When you're down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night
You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend”
After the storm, there were so many individuals and organizations offering to provide help by donating money or goods to anyone in need that our hearts were touched by their generosity. There were even lines to volunteer!
Now we move forward to resurrect our homes and get our lives back to some type of normalcy. Realistically, it won’t be a speedy process but it will happen. Assuredly, we are resilient!
Cy-Fair Republican Women pray for a quick recovery for all those impacted by the natural disasters of the last several weeks and look forward to visiting with you soon!
As you probably know, the September Meeting was cancelled because Hearthstone CC sustained water damage. Happily, CFRW will be able to hold their October Meeting at Hearthstone as usual and the program will be a panel of Texas State Representatives – Dwayne Bohac, Dr. Tom Oliverson, Kevin Roberts and Mike Schofield.
We also invite you to visit our website and check out the information on High Heels and High Tea, the CFRW biennial fundraiser and generally good-time event, which will take place on Friday, November 3, at Sterling Country Club. Tickets and sponsorships are available now – www.cfrw.net
