SURVIVING THE STORMS

We survived the tornadoes that hit Oklahoma AND our town last night! I am SO GLAD this latest weather related nightmare is over! Our house escaped damage but many homes weren't so fortunate! Today, I'm thankful the devastation wasn't any worse than it was...it's bad enough! A few years ago one of our towns was nearly destroyed by a similar storm. There were people who did lose their lives last night...I believe the death count is currently at eight. It was a serious storm and I'm grateful it is over. Loving thoughts and prayers go out to those who are facing any loss... We are a strong people here in Oklahoma! Thank you for all the emails and BLOG comments! They mean so much!

I did manage to get some things uploaded on my website before the weather turned severe. This proved to be nothing short of amazing as half the evening (and then some) was spent without power! When it did come BACK on it went off again almost immediately... So much for the plans for my Website GRAND Re-OPENING! Isn't it funny how you can plan and plan for an event and then something BIGGER than you are changes everything in a flash? Not to worry though! We are GREAT and like I said, we survived the storms! Blessed and sooo thankful to be alive.

I will continue to upload new items for your consideration on my Website! Don't forget to post a comment so you can be entered in the drawing for the FREE SACHET PILLOW~I'll ship it anywhere!

Still have so much to get ready for you to see! Thank you for the biz and AGAIN for your heartfelt words of encouragement and concern for both my family and I AND the beautiful state of Oklahoma! They mean more than you know!

Blessings...Rebecca

Hi Rebecca, So thankful you came through the storms okay. We had them here too and some homes were damaged to the south of us, but we are doing great here and very thankful it could have been much worse. Our hearts go out to those around your area that did not do as well. Prayers for them.
Glad you have power back.
Take care and sending big hugs,
Celestina Marie

I was thinking about you last night and hoping that you were okay.

My thoughts and prayers are also with the ones who have lost loved ones and those that have sustained damage.

Rebecca & family, I'm so glad that your all fine. How scary. We are getting all but the tornado's here in Indiana. My car was spared a tree limb crash. I had been running errands. Imagine that. Dreaded errands probably saved my car from having to get a new windsheild. Playing havoc with my photo's as well. I visited your site.. lovely as always! One day I will own one of your signs!
