Update: Alive, Blessed and Grateful

Update: Hey everybody! Just a quick update. My power was restored on Wednesday evening (yeah)...but no phone or internet service (boo)...yet. We are beginning the clean up, trying to get trees cut and hauled away. Thanks so much to all of you who left such sweet messages! You made my week! It's been hard getting back into the groove, but everyday gets a little better.

Thanks Hedi at Swamp Frogs for passing along the favorite follower award to me! She has a fantastic blog with lots of wonderful things to share. I hope to get back to posting soon. Everyone have a blessed and peaceful weekend!

Hi to all my blogging friends. As you know another round of tornadoes hit the state of Alabama early Monday morning. My neighborhood was one of the hardest hit. But God is good. I live on 1.5 acres, I have seven trees down in my yard...but none hit my home. All of my neighbors are safe and we are just praising God. I'm without power so I'm doing a quick post from school. So I am blessed,  and grateful.  It was a scary night, but I'm alive, and my family is safe.

Hopefully I'll be back soon with pictures and lots of good things to share.

    I am so glad you and your family are ok. It is so scary.
    We had one tornado here in Colorado right after I moved here from New Jersey and I was freaked--even though it was a F1. My students were a wreck, too, for about a year.
    I hope everyone in your community was spared:)
    God bless,

  14. I am very thanful that you and your family are ok. After our experience with tornados in April in North AL, just word tornado brings a little fear to us. BUT, I am very thankful to know someone that can protect us through the storms!

  15. I am so glad you are okay. I will keep you and your neighbors in my prayers.
