What happened today in Oklahoma, the devastation, the lives lost, the children…yes, it’s heartbreaking. Yet times like these, events like this are intriguing in a way. Suddenly, my issues, my pain, my problems in life vanish. My instincts take over. I’m a human being. Regardless of my difference, whether it’s race, color, religion, or what have I, all of that vanishes too.
I care for others on a basic and instinctive level. It’s called love in its purest form. That’s priceless. Any time young children–or their parents are taken–it is heart breaking~ Life is fragile~-handle it with prayer.
This kind of weather pattern, this time of year, has always been a part of life for folks who live in the Plains states. They’re survivors. They’ll come back. They always have and always will.
May God bless my friends in Oklahoma! As my thoughts of hope and prayers for safety and recovery go out to everyone affected by these storms in Oklahoma City and other areas impacted by today’s tornadoes, I have an even greater appreciation for the brave EMS providers and first responders who are there, and all throughout our country, each and every day. THANK YOU.
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
