Quick Update:

First of all, thank you so much to my blogger friends who have reached out and checked on me! You are so very sweet....Camela, Stephanie, Jacquie and Carmen to name a few! I so appreciate you thinking of me and my family!
Right now I'm doing fine, but poor Vicky is getting hammered right now and has been without power since yesterday.  I'm in the Southwest corner of the state, so we are still waiting to see what the effects of this storm will be.  I got this picture in a text message appropriate when you're in the path of a storm trying to figure out what to do. 

I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm safe and to thank you for your concern. I will update you as soon as I know what's going to happen.  I'm at work today, but school has been canceled and I'm sure it will be tomorrow too.  As I wait to see what's in store for us, I can't help but remember what things were like 7 years ago.  We watched in disbelief as Katrina destroyed New Orleans and so many lives were lost.  Then a month later, all Hell broke loose for me with Rita. We spend so much of our lives trying to be in control, it only takes a moment like this to point out, that we really have very little control.  I pray for the safety of those in the middle of this chaos and pray for the safety of my family as well.  I'm grateful that we have the technology to be warned ahead of time and that we have the resources to get out of harm's way if need be. 

Again, thank you for your concern, it warms my heart. 
Big Hugs,
