If you haven't heard, Colorado was hit by 6 Tornadoes yesterday afternoon. Fortunately, the first tornado traveled right passed our town onto the next town only 5 minutes from us. My family and our home are fine but our spirits are not. Our best-friends in Windsor lost their first home.They are safe and unharmed but they are without power, and have no belongings.They lost their van, their car-seats, clothes, jackets, toys, wedding pictures, furniture, and much more.
Today.... I have this hollow feeling inside that hurts so bad. I woke-up early this morning, hoping that it was a terrible dream but unfortunately it wasn't. It's a amazing how family & faith can get you though something so tragic.........
As I was helping our friends load their car with car seats, water, food, clothes, and toys, I was thinking to myself.........Why are our friends smiling? Why are they not bitter, why are they not screaming? I later thought as I was hugging my children later that night, that it is all because of the faith they (we) have and that they have eachother. And in the end........that is all that matters.
