New Beginnings.......................

As many parts of our Country are dealing with the crazy weather that Spring can sometimes bring or the aftermath of the crazy weather the town that I live in is cleaning up after and recovering from a tornado. The tornado we experienced was one of the first ones to touch the ground before (excuse my language ahead of time) all hell broke loose in Alabama 2 weeks ago.

I thought all my life that I grew up in tornado alley in the land of Oz BUT..............never have I seen in person until 2 weeks ago just exactly the physical and emotional damage and stress a tornado can cause to people and a town! With that being said, I've also witnessed just how big hearted and caring the people of this town, state, and country are!! I have witnessed a town come together to help out friends and strangers AND watched as people generously and whole heartedly donated items, money,time and help to anyone who was in need of any of it.

I was told recently that when something like this happens it will bond a town and the citizens of it forever. As I drive through town now the truth of that statement hits home. This spring will be one that will not be forgotten and will be remembered as the spring that bonded a community!!
