Like you my heart is breaking once again for all the victims and their families who are suffering from the cruel senseless, cowardly act in Boston.
I have not felt like blogging or being on the computer since this happened.
Then early this morning my friend Janie calls me and tells me about the horrific explosion in West, Texas.
It brought back memories of the explosion here in our small town around twenty years ago.
I still remember that day like it was yesterday.
The day of the Gas explosion I was in Huntsville, Texas attending In-Service Classes and walking into the college that morning the ground shook. Huntsville is close to eighty miles from here.
Being in class I had no idea there was an explosion in my area. The Warden where I worked phoned the college and had them send me home. I was a nervous wreck that long drive home because all the phone lines were down and I did not know if my children were ok. I knew my husband was out of town working but I had Clint and Christi at home. Chad was actually in college in Huntsville.
The explosion was in the country about ten miles from where we lived. Clint and Christi thought a tornado had happened because they told me the whole house shook.
Our area looked like a bomb had been dropped from the sky and I am sure that is what the town of West looks like tonight.
Sending prayers to heaven for the people of Boston and the little town of West.
Tomorrow my boss/landlady will be here for the day. I am hoping that they are coming to discuss my future and the move to Georgetown. At first I was totally excited about it but after having over a month to bounce it back and forth in my head I am not sure it is the right thing to do.
Seems foolish of me to worry about something like a move when so many others have lost so much.
Sending you much love and Sweet Dreams!
Love to all,
