Leave it to my fellow mamas to be concerned about how my family and I are doing. We are very blessed, a little numb.... but blessed. Thank you for your thoughts & prayers..........

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.

May. 23, 2008 at 12:28 PM I'm so glad you guys are safe. In the end all these things are just THINGS. It's the people that really matter. Don't get me wrong, I would be totally crushed to lose those things but I'd rather have my family. Maybe that's what your friends had in mind... also, I'm sure they were very thankful to have you there too!
