Perhaps it’s that my husband is from Missouri. Perhaps it’s because when I grew up we had some scary tornadoes around our ranch. Or perhaps these were just everyday people who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Thinking about those babies who were swept out of their mother’s arms during this storm makes me so so sad. And I’m reminded just how precious life is.
I guess the only good that comes from these events is the reminder of how grateful we need to be for what we have.
