At a loss for words

I will start this post off by saying I have coped with two very frightened
puppies the past couple of days
 
I had promised to share pictures of Rango since she will be Two years
old the last day of this month
so I will begin this post with those
 
 
The dirty little face impossible to keep white!!
I did not think there could be anything worse then Shelby when
it came to the fear of a storm but oh my
Little Rango, she shivers so badly and pants so hard and
gets so scared she gets confused !!! when you put her down she
acutally turns in circles trying to figure out where to go and hide at!

 
these were taken this morning before the afternoon storms blew in
yes it got a little wild today, last night too, we did go to the cellar
last night!
 
 
what are they looking at well it was misting outside and I thought
I would never get them to venture out to do their business
but there were little bunnies out front so they went to see what I was looking at
 
 
The picture I realize is not clear but I could not focus I could not
stand out there long, my foot has been hurting so bad lately
 
There were several little bunnies across this road in front of our
little red house
 
 
What a nightmare yesterday was for me as I stood and watched
the storm moving for my family in Moore
pacing the floor and so Scared!! knowing it was too close
just too close, praying hard and crying out in fear!!
 
It came so close to my mother, just too close
It did not spare my sisters home, she lost everything
she rented her home and did not have renters insurance
so she lost everything!!
But things can be replaced, life can not!!
 
This evening my husband called
before he came home from work! He had just got the news
that his cousins, son in law was killed in the tornado
 
Many prayers, many tears, more prayers
that is what my day has been filled with
 
as many of you I know have done the same
 
My heart aches, Moore is my home that is where I lived
most of my life! I pray for those that have lost loved ones
and I pray for strength for those that will start all over to
rebuild their homes and try to put the pieces together again
 
I am behind for those waiting for orders for that I apologize
I picked my sewing back up late this afternoon, it helps to
keep my mind busy, I will get caught up and start shipping
boxes out again tomorrow, thank you for your patience and
I do hope you understand, I do not handle a crisis well
I fold, I fall to pieces, I think mostly it is the distance and
not being able to go right there and help!! I am grateful tonight
grateful my mother and my sister are ok
But crushed just heart broken for those that lost what can not be replaced a
loved one, something that can never walk through their door again.

  1. Dear Brenda, my heart breaks for all those people that have lost loved ones. Even to loose your house and everything in it would be more than I can imagine. My prayers go out to all those in trauma.
    You keep safe, you have a wonderful dog to keep you company.

  2. I just watched the special with Brian Williams reporting from Moore, with more tears, heart ache and prayers for Oklahoma. Lives lost can never be replaced and the hurt will always be there.
    God Bless everyone.

    I'm so sorry that your sister lost everything but so thankful that she wasn't hurt. I know you aren't asking for anything but I'd like to make a small contribution to your sister to help her get back on her feet. Please email me at markdonnaharris@yahoo.com so I can get info to you. We're from NW Arkansas so we know how horrible storm season can be and my heart just breaks for everyone in Oklahoma.

  30. There are just no adequate words to make any of this better for anyone involved. Please just know that there are people clear across the country who have been glued to the television in shock and feeling so much pain for our fellow human beings. We may never have met but we share love of family, pride in home and when we see someone hurting like that we hurt too and want to do something, anything to help somehow. We will contribute however we can, whether financially, physically, or with prayers or any combination of the three. You are all in our thoughts and prayers now and for the rebuilding to come.

  34. Brenda--I am so, so sorry for your little fur babies. I know mine get so upset when a storm is brewing. There really is nothing that can bring them peace but for it to be over.
    And, OMG, your poor sister. I am just so glad that no one is lost to this. Your Mother is OK, right? My heart goes out to you and your family. I am sending prayers for all in Oklahoma.
    Big hugs!

  41. I am an Oklahoman and though this storm missed me, I have seen the damage and heartbreak. Anne told me of your blog and the family situation. I want you to know I am praying and also finding other ways to support these neighbors I don't know but consider 'friends I've never met'.
