Sorry I haven't posted in a few weeks. I have been working diligently on converting a bunch of images so I can get some serious crafting done this summer and of course all projects I make will include the files in Make The Cut format for you wonderful folks. With me just working on converting files I haven't done any crafting and haven't had anything to post.
After all the devastating weather Oklahoma has had the last two days I thought I better check in here since I have heard from people on Facebook all over the United States, a few from Canada and even as far as the UK and Australia wondering how I am fairing in this terrible outbreak of tornado's in Oklahoma.
Luckily my town has been spared so far. On Sunday the town Shawnee was hit heavily and that is about 55 miles north of me. I didn't have any loved one's in that particular area that got hit but my heart went out to all those effected.
Today we had massive tornado's in the area from Newcastle to Moore. I grew up in Newcastle and have cousins that live in that town. I have sisters, nieces and nephews in Moore. I can say I honestly prayed and prayed during the time the newscasters were giving reports of the devastating tornado. The reports given let me know the tornado was headed straight to my sister Cheryl's home. I was able to finally get a hold of her husband and he let me know that she had gotten the dogs in the car and drove south to another town called Norman. I have heard from or reports of all of my family expect for two of my nephews at this time. Cell service is down in the area so I am unable to find out updates on my sisters home or the welfare of my nephews at this time but they likely were at work and not in the area at the time.
I can't even begin to express my feelings right no of how blessed I am feeling but the guilt for feeling blessed when others are suffering greatly from the loss of their homes and loved ones. At this time the death toll is at 51 and they are still doing a search and recovery at an elementary school that was leveled.
Please keep everyone in your prayers.
