This Is My Reality!

This will probably be the longest post that I have ever made! I would really like to post happy pictures of our Easter and talk about happy things but I can't. Last night a tornado hit my hometown. Luckily my whole family was safe and only a few had damage. It has always been a fear of mine to have a tornado hit my town. I never imagined the damage or the feeling that I can't even recognize some of my town. I'm just so thankful that everyone of our family is fine. Sadly four people were killed in our small town of Arkansas. I'm so sad for the ones that have basically lost everything and for the ones that lost their loved ones. Here are some pictures from the downtown area and these aren't even half of the damage done to our town.
Some of the school!
One of the gas stations in town.

A BBQ Place!
A shop!
Power lines down!

Our pizza place!

Side of our grocery store!

Our Hardware store!


My hair salon!

An Auction Barn!


This is my Mom's friends house!

An 18 wheeler on it's side!

Every news station in the state has been in our town. Along with the National Guard, Red Cross, Verizon Charging Stations, Walmart help trucks and many others.
This is the trailor I used to live in. It's right by my parents house!
Tree down by my parents house!
Tree down by their dog Buddy!

My parents live right in the middle of town. Sonic is almost across the street. Thankfully their house was fine except for trees down.

All I can say is WOW! I can't even begin to express what I am feeling. Please Keep us in your prayers!
