Hang in there my friend...the days are long, but the years are short for raising your children. I know it can be frustrating!
Is it too soon to bust out the elf on the shelf to keep this little one in line?
LOL!

I remember that saying of his too, so true.
I was just talking with my neighbor and she mentioned that folks from this area are getting ready to head out to help too.

I was just at that school about two weeks ago, on a Sunday, visiting with some folks who live across the street. I know their house is gone but have not heard from them.

Thanks for all the prayers. Don't get the wrong impression...my house and family are safe! But just taking the loss in the community hard.

Hope you all are having a good Monday. My dogs don't know what to think about all this...helicopters and sirens all around!
Oh, Ryan, I am so very sorry. I have seen some of the coverage that has brought tears to my eyes. I did not hear this news yet. I have said prayers for the community and will continue to do so.
