Chicken soup

I am one of the lucky ones. I have an outlet that works on either side of my house, I have running water that heats up for a shower, I have gas burners that light and a phone with a signal. I have my boy and my husband in full working order.
Around me, it’s terrible. People have lost their whole house, and houses all around them. In Staten Island a woman lost both of her little children, swept away from her like leaves off a tree.
There is a dead quiet relentless banging that the weather is alive.
I made chicken soup for Ferdinand and Jonathan last night that we ate by candlelight with Halloween candy for dessert.
All of my love faith and hope for everyone battered and battling the storm.
