Giving thanks today, for sure!

Tuesday, March 03, 2020

Sometimes, you just count your blessings. I sure did today. The tornado that struck Nashville last night was quite devastating, and we find that it ripped through the part of town my son and his girlfriend live in. A restaurant 1 block from their building was destroyed, and their apartment complex was evacuated due to a gas leak. BUT.....

They are on a ski trip in Western Canada with her family, so they're safe and intact! Thank God! Any damage is to stuff, not their person!

This natural disaster hit a little too close to home for me, and I certainly feel for those that are there and have lost belongings, or worse. Yet, I'm selfishly grateful.

Hug your family today, be it in person or virtually.

    All is well with my family down there. The part of town they lived in was devastated, and they needed to find a new home, which they did, starting April 1. They'll stay with friends for a few days then check in to the Hyatt House. All in all, they came out of this very fortunate, and they realize that. (which in and of itself, is a great thing!)

    Thanks for all the concern. We continue to pray for those less fortunate, and will find a good charity to donate relief $ to.

    So grateful your family is ok! I have a friend visiting her father in Nashville and they too are ok. Things can be replace, but those we love cannot. Indeed, cherish them while you can! Prayers for those who lost dear ones and strength to rebuild for those who lost their homes and belongings. Hugs!

    Glad to hear there were no people hurt in your part of Nashville. Praying for encouragement and strength for the people of that city.
