GUEST BLOG by Shirley Goldsmith: Thoughts while I was snug-as-a-bug while Sandy roared on

Posted: November 6, 2012

This week's blog post is from Shirley Goldsmith. Despite Hurricane Sandy's turbulence outside, Shirley felt great relief to be safe at home at Golda Meir House.

As the rain came down, and the trees started to blow a little harder than we are used to seeing I wonder what was --going through your-- minds but I was so darn happy being in a safe place as Golda.  My television, radios, land-line phone, stove, oven, refrigerator and the thing that held it all together, our electricity were all intact.  The letter that came around giving us all the details of what we had here to make our lives comfortable and without fear of losing our essentials was a blessing.
This reminded me of another time a few years back, when we were forwarned about an oncoming storm and Richard and his staff made life bearable then too.
It was a little surreal sitting and watching from my living room, all the damage and upheaval of certain towns and states that were under siege during this horrific time.  We are truly blessed to live in a complex that puts our safety first and foremost and that none of us have to have fears of shifting our lives elsewhere.  Thank you Richard and your staff and all the outside workers who perhaps had a hand in getting us so organized.
