Lucky for me I am nowhere near where the cyclone is to hit but my heart is heavy with concern for the people further north of me. I am so proud of my state and the people who live here after seeing the Queensland spirit for myself the other week when cleaning up Paul's Grandfathers house after the floods in Brisbane a couple of weeks ago. Even though we were covered in mud horrified by the huge piles of peoples belongings placed out on the footpath to be thrown away, you could feel the determination of everyone to work together and to get the place cleaned up and life back to normal again.
After having a horrible 2010 myself I was looking forward to starting new in 2011 now I don't know what to think life is pretty crazy here at the moment.
I didn't mean for this to be a long post so I will leave it there, but before I do I found this picture on the internet that sums up the Aussie spirit.
Please stay safe everyone who has chosen to stay in FNQ my prayers and thoughts are with you all, and as our Premier Anna Bligh said about the recent floods they may break our hearts but they will not break our spirit.
