It's what we often overlook, or forget, or simply don't reflect about.

It's all owed to us, right? Health, roof, love, food, money, friends, job, success...

Two weeks ago I received a great reminder of not taking things for granted, as hurricane Matthew, scheduled to brush or even hit the Southeast Florida coast as a cat. 4 storm, decided last minute to pass us a bit further east.

Enough east to spare South Florida, but not poor Haiti or the northern Florida coast.

Excluding Matthew, I witnessed seven hurricanes, severe ones like Andrew and smaller ones like Irene where I went to the beach to shoot. For me as a layperson, a category 4-storm is not fun, to phrase it very mildly.

Seems to me that now is a very opportune time to be grateful for what we have.

Your thoughts?
