The storms came through, they left their damage, they took homes, lives, security. My husband's highschool, 2 and a half hours away, was damaged. Tuscaloosa, damaged. Area's north and south of us, damaged, changed forever. We watched, prayed, lost power, but the storms spared us. I am thankful. Also, in awe, of the damage wrought, by wind and water. I see the people afterward, wanting to help, to do what is needed. We are blessed, I am encouraged.
