updates from 2010

Well where to start , I just started this blog so I guess I will just fill you in on what all has happened in my life up till now.  To start I had just got everthing prim and the way I like it when my family was struck on July 21 2010 with disaster . At 2 am I woke to use the bathroom and realized that we where getting flooded . I woke all my kids and hubby and we tried to make it to safety at this point my mobile home was being lift up and water was coming through the  vents ... Scary to say the least, I have never been in any situation like that before and hope to never be again. Well after we got all our kids out my husband heard our neighbors hollering and he went after them. There mobile home was moved off the foundation pushed about 100 feet across the road and was stuck with 2 still inside The mother had been sucked out the back door my husband got to her first then went back to the two adult children they where inside and the water was up to the window midway . My husband got the guy to knock the door open a flood of water came out at him well to make a long story short he did get them all out despite the dangers of houses being washed by him and blowing up when they hit the tree's. When the water started to go down and it got day light my heart sank all we ever had was gone all that was left was the muddy clothes we had on and a pile debre and mud .When I think back to all that happened Iam just thankful the lord was there that night .He woke me just in time to wake everyone . My 4 littlest girls where also in a little tent they got from there granny it was zipped twice they would have never made it...( SO thank you Lord For everything you have done for our family.)Another blessing is my husband was saved and Baptised Another blessing for my family . My husband was on a road to destruction drinking , and alot of other stuff, well the good lord took it all  off of him and he has been full of life and love ever since ( Thank you again Lord).I dont think I will ever be able to say thank you enough. Our home was gone but we had the lord and eachother and it took about 2 months but we did get another home and we are very thankful. We started over but I think that the lord had a plan for our lives. I still think of that night almost ever day and relize there is always something to be thankfull for! So I will end for now saying be so ever thankfull for everything and every moment you have . Love the lord family friends and neighbors and always remeber he is the reason where here.
