I sit here in this quiet house, sheltered by these four comforting walls. We have all our things. In fact, we have more than we need, that’s why we are downsizing.
Outside the wind whips intenstely. It is a force to be reckoned with. It is strong enough to slam car doors shut, blow down trees, and make it uncomfortable to be outside. It makes me wonder what it takes for the wind to go from this to a tornado that’s treatening lives and devastating entire towns. Aside from the actual science of it, it really only takes a mere second for things to change.
My heart goes out to all those affected by the tornados of Oklahoma. I can only imagine the heartache they have been left with. The grieving they must be experiencing. Not just over things lost but lives lost. No, not lost —-
Life; breathing life ripped away from those precious babies, their families, and communities all within a matter of seconds.
What a tragedy.
My prayers and my heart are with them all as they begin to pick up the pieces of their lives.
Love your babies and hug your family and friends because all it takes is a split-second for our lives to change.
