Thank you, God, for watching over Jessie.

This is my niece, Jessica, and her little girl, Navi. (This pic is from my vacation last year.)


Here is a recent pic of Navi:

I just found out last night that early Sunday morning, Jessica's home was hit by a tornado! While Jessie and Navi were there! How scary for the both of them!

Jessie said that she was asleep and rain woke her up. Then she realized that it was hail. Then part of the roof was ripped off and the windows imploded. She was terrified, but neither she or Navi got a single scratch on them.

My sister, Jessica's mom, said that the mobile home is probably to damaged to even consider repairing. But who knows, we have some pretty handy people in our family, so it might get repaired. I was already scheduled to go to Tennessee, to see the fam, next week. I think my sisters and I will be hitting some thrift stores to help Jessica get whatever she needs to replace.

Thank you, God, for watching over my family, every single day.

Alright this one gave me goose bumps! What a gift they were given, in that they weren't hurt.

I can't even imagine how scary that must have been for them. Thank goodness your niece and her little girl are safe.

Thanks for stopping by, McVal, SonyaAnn and Yonca.

Our family IS blessed.

Amazing that they are safe and sound after going through that! Things can be replaced but not people in our hearts....
And your visit is timed just right too....synchronicity at work. ;-)

slugmama, my family really is blessed and Jessie's experience is just another proof of that.
