Special by proxy

First off, thank you too all my friends who took a moment to pray for my family. They are all safe and well. I haven't heard of any major damage to their houses but they really aren't able to return yet because of lack of utilities and water. I know they would appreciate your continued prayers as they deal with all the aftermath and clean up.

Thank you friends, it really means a lot to me that I can ask and know that prayers are lifted up. Please never hesitate to ask the same of me.

Many of you might not know how involved my family is in all the hurricane mess. My father was in Mississippi immediately after Katrina working with a chemical company on clean up and containment, my sister works for the FEMA call center, and my mother works for the Department of Homeland Security and is currently in Baton Rouge working at the main governmental staging area.

All that to say, my mom called me yesterday to tell me she met PRESIDENT BUSH. The President had come to Baton Rouge to meet with the people in charge and while walking though the offices (or better yet a big room with lots of workers) stopped and talked to my mom for five minutes and shook her hand.

I'M JEALOUS.

So yep, I'm special by proxy.

Sorry JCol but the happy thoughts didn't make it (horrible accident - too soon to talk about it)

If you want I will be happy (pun intended) to email you the happy thoughts.

Isn't "W" just the greatest? My dad got to meet him when he came to Atlanta, so I guess that makes me special by proxy as well.
It's nice to have a fellow Republican blogger!!
