ALIVE: the hungry cats who greeted our return, late last night.
BLUE: the eerie glow emanating from the darkness of our kitchen.
OMELETTE: the breakfast I'd cooked for our houseguest that morning.
ELEVEN: the hours the gas flame had burned in our absence.
UNSCARRED: the frying pan, now completely free of oil.
MIRACLE: the house that's still standing.

Thank you, God.
