SWEET TEA

"Quick.  Get the phone".

We were carrying in bags and luggage after spending the weekend in Tulsa, Okla, when the phone rang.  It was a friend checking to see that we had made it home safely.  We had been slowly and methodically making the drive back to Louisiana (on Monday) having no idea that horrific storms were whirling in the air as we traveled.  The path from Tulsa to our home had been sunny and uneventful.  Me, Mister, Haylee Kate, and Lil' Mama - safely home from a family visit.

Some came home Monday.
Many did not.



Please remember to pray.

I'm glad you and your family made it home safely. The devastation in Moore in just awful. We lived there when my youngest daughter was born 36 yrs ago yesterday. Many prayers for those who are suffering.

This has been the topic of conversation all morning. We are so shocked at the photos and the faces of the people. Keeping the state of Oklahoma in my prayers.

I am thankful your family made it home. No words for describing the tragedy of Moore, OK. I am glad the numbers of lives lost are much less than previously thought, but the devastation for their city and the losses are still too much.
