All I can ask for is that you pray...

I don't know if you've seen or heard this story about the tornadoes in Arkansas that hit last night...but it's a terrible disaster. It has touched our family in a distant but real way...My cousin lived in this town for a while and her husband is from Mena. His family and a lot of friends live there and we're still waiting word of their safety.

Please pray....

Update: They are all safe...my cousin's husband's brother's house was hit and destroyed but they're all safe and sound. We've been holed up all evening with tornadoes of our own to deal with...crazy weather!!!! I hope you're safe and sound wherever you may be.

Mena Arkansas where a tornado.
At least three people were killed and two dozen injured on Thursday night when a tornado smashed through Mena, Arkansas.

"About half the injuries were reported as serious," said Tommy Jackson, a spokesman for the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management at North Little Rock, Arkansas.

Take care of yourself, Mama!

And I'm SO glad to hear that your family is safe and sound (but very sorry to hear about the loss of their house)!
