Emotions of anger and sadness pulsated in me. The thoughts of how long it had taken to grow, how much I had cared for it and more, raced through my mind.
But the thought came to me then that even though it’s annoying, it’s just a #1stworldproblem and that I am grateful that my house is still standing. I cannot imagine what it must be like to live in a monsoon area knowing there is a high chance that I may not even survive. So I thought of India and Sri Lanka and said a few quick prayers and refocused my mind to be #grateful.
