~Bama Bound Quilts~

Bama Bound Quilts ~ a new project created to comfort some of the littlest victims of the recent Alabama tornado’s.

I can’t stop thinking of all the tornado victims from this past round of storms. The destruction and damage astounds me.  I keep thinking it could have been me. I can only imagine what it feels like to see sticks and piles of debris at what used to be your home. I can’t quite wrap my mind around this.

I know with certainty that I want to help. I know a small warm quilt will help comfort a little one. Nestled under its warmth or spread out to lay upon on a warm summer’s day. A quilt offers the warmth and security that I know I would need if I went through such devastation.

Please consider joining the cause if you so feel inclined.

Here is what the quilter in Alabama has to say about her project:

I am setting up a quilt charity for Tuscaloosa and Jefferson County. In particular need are children’s and baby quilts. Please pack in a child/medium size tote. Please include a small stuffed animal. Entire neighborhoods were wiped off the map. Hundreds of families and children are displaced. They have NOTHING. Thanks.

Storm Slaps Power Lines Silly – WREG

Storm Slaps Power Lines Silly – WREG.

Do you believe in Angels? I do.

Our angels surrounded us Thursday night I wanted to share what happened to us and our home. 

My  house and my husband are  in the beginning of this news article.  We are all completely shell shocked.  The damage and the  scope  is just barely sinking in. We are all fine, our home however is not.  We are on edge until our insurance tells us what to expect. At this point they have brought in a huge crew and cranes to clear the house. They  tarped the house as we have more severe weather heading our way Sunday and Monday.

I wish I could erase this event from Emma’s memory. She is scared and confused.  Her room took the brunt. Her birthday is Monday and she keeps asking why did this happen on my birthday??  We have a battered home and are living like refugeee’s but we are blessed. People don’t always surrvive huge huge oak trees falling in their home. Our angels surrounded us, they shielded us from harm. 

 I am filled with gratitude and pray for peace and patience. I will breathe deeply and often with my focus on gratitude.  Things can be replaced, hopefully our home rebuilt. Above all we are still a family and we are intact. Gratitude.
