Tornado

Life can change literally and unexpectedly at any moment. This truly hit home to us last night as we received a crazy phone call about my in-laws. While 3 out of 4 of my sister-in-laws and company were visiting them in a little town in Indiana, a tornado hit their home, as well as their entire neighborhood and town. Fortunately, nobody was hurt in our family which we are soo, soo grateful for. We are not sure yet about the complete damage of their home, but we do know they we probably need to rebuild, and both of their neighbor's homes and much of their neighborhood has been obliterated. Nature is a very wild and powerful thing. We send out our prayers and love to them, in wish for a speedy rebuilding.

12 years ago, on the day I brought my new baby son home from the hospital, a tornado hit our town. I have never been able to shake that event...imprinted on my mind. It is the sound of a tornado that lives in your soul. I thought it was a jet crashing or a train coming through our house. It's hard to explain, but once you have experienced it, you get 'real humble' about nature and the fragility of life. I'm so glad to hear they are O.K..
