Please pray for all who were affected by the tragedy at Fort Hood, Texas, yesterday.

My son and his family and my best friend's son and family are stationed at Fort Hood. We had a scarey few hours, yesterday, until we heard that they were all okay.

In case your news didn't report it, there was a mass shooting yesterday resulting in 13 dead and 30 wounded. Here is a link if you want to read more: Fort Hood shootings

Yesterday was my birthday and my very best gift was hearing that my child was okay.

The soldiers and families of those killed and wounded will be in my prayers.

Oh goodness....that would have been so scary; I can't imagine what you went through until you heard that they were all okay.

Happy Birthday, BTW, and I agree with you; that was the best gift that you could have been given! :)

Sorry to be rude and totally off topic but, do you have any idea what has happened to Sonya Ann? Her blog is gone!

Thanks!

Frances said...

I have no idea what happened to her. Darn it, I thought I had her email addy, but can't find it.

I am sure she will be back. I have had that happen with other blogs. They would disappear, then be back a couple of days later. I hope SonyaAnn reappears!
