Tornadoes in Alabama

We are safe. We don't know the damage done yet, but all of our family is safe and has no major damage. My Aunt Wendy said that she knows of people who lost their homes by word of mouth, but that's probably all we will know until daylight. I just wanted to check-in. Praise God he has protected us once again! I will never take that for granted again! The kids and I stayed in the hallway with a mattress underneath and a mattress over our heads! I'm not sure that I have ever talked to so many friends and family members on the phone at 3 AM before. I just got all of the kids back to sleep, poor babies, Maddie was absolutely histerical. It is very REAL to us still. I've had 1 hour of sleep so I'm headed to bed. I'll be praying for those who have lost property, and praying that this didn't take any lives. Blessed. xo, Sam

P.S. Just got the news that someone in our area was killed. Praying...

Sam, I just now heard about the tornados and instantly wanted to pick up the phone to call to make sure you are all alright. But after reading your blog i decided right now sleep is much more important for all of you and now that i know you are all alright I will rest easier. Please call me later today when you are rested. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Great Big Hugs!!!!
