Tornadoes in Texas

Sunday, April 14, 2019

Yesterday, we received the news that one of my sisters, while on vacation with her husband in East Texas, got caught up in the storms. Her husband is in the hospital with cuts and bruises but my wonderful sister didn't make it. The tornado was an EF-3 strength.

She is survived by her husband, three sisters, four children and four grandchildren. The thing that makes this doubly tough is just fourteen short months ago, we buried my mother.

Joanna brought the sunshine every time she entered the room, and it's going to be really tough dealing with this. I'm still grieving for my mom...now this.

I'm not the only one who has ever had to go through this but I can only go by what I am personally experiencing. The past fourteen months have literally been one thing after another...and I don't mean small things like a hangnail. I keep telling God I don't need anymore firing/purifying...I'm enough of a character as it is, but apparently, He doesn't agree. emoticon emoticon I just know I can't quit crying.

The one blessing is that my Mom didn't have to deal with this. It would have completely broken her. I know they're together now but I'm sure going to miss both of them!!!

Farewell to the best mom and sister a girl could have!!!!!

    I am sorry. I lost my Mom in 1994, suddenly. I still have days that I cry and cry and cry. I made excuses for the first year, she is working, at the cottage, etc..journaling helped me..I would write it to her, like a letter, tell her about my day, etc.

    Thinking of u..sending virtual hugs. Just imagine...you have 2 guardian Angel's now. ❤
