Hurricane Wilma, her grandmother built a fire

Sherline Samedi - November 16 2005, 9:59 PM

know what you mean about those wonderful nights in the country parts of Haiti.

I was born here but was fortunate enough to have had the spent a month in Haiti about two years ago.

On top of that it was during the month of August which seemed like the best time to go.

When I visited my cousin's home last week, she showed me where her grandmother built a fire out in the backyard and I was telling her how it brought back wonderful memories of living the simple life (even if it was for only one month, I am just as grateful).

I remember that first night we got to the country we had to go out to the river (which is extremely close to our house) to bathe and I alarmed! Me and my sisters asked my aunt, "Who's shining that bright light?" and she said, "what light?".

That's when I looked up and saw it was the moon.

It was so beautiful up there shining so brightly.

All in all, I wanted to just let you know that I, too, enjoyed wonderful memories during the aftermath of hurricane wilma.

P.S. We got our power back Tuesday afternoon!!! Yay!!!
