tomorrow would be my 26th wedding anniversary, Not sure how the day will be. I'm so tired of crying and feeling weepy all the time and being sad and all the pretending that I am fine, My prayers are with all the hurt and scared people in Texas right now, praying for peace for them and everyone

Steve ...  Thank you for that very soothing song and it made my morning. 

Love your sis Marsha

Deborah ...  As I said praying each and every person is safe from this horrendous weather in Texas.  Been following it on the news.  I hope and pray that your niece, her husband and baby make it through without anything more happening.  Mother Nature can sure tell us who is boss.  I can't imagine how all those people must feel.

Russ, Steve and others that are affected by the terrible weather in Texas.  I've been saying prayers ever since this hit Houston.  I pray it soon calms down and most are safe.  It appears from what I see on the news and youtube reports so many people are helping others which gives me hope for all concerned.

Hugs & Blessings

My niece and her husband and baby are now an Island in their home in Houston due to the flooding, praying it doesn't continue to rise for them and everyone else, so far no water inside their house

Thanks Charles

Russ, My prayers for you and all the people enduring this catastrophic storm and it's aftermath. Larry and I were hit by Sandy in 2012, and went without power, water, and phone service for 11 days. We were OK, but the road we live on was closed due to downed trees and wires, and there were too many thousands without power and shelter for the crews to deal with. Thinking of it now, I see how fortunate we both were that neither of us was at the time sick, or things would have been that much worse. Angels appeared from Georgia eventually and cleared our road and restored power - I was crying when one man came to the door and actually apologized for "bothering" us, but wanted to be sure we were alright and had power. I wanted to grab him in a hug, but just shook his hand and said God Bless You and yours, and may you have angels fly to your aid if ever you need them, as you have done here for us in NJ. I hope many thousands of angels descend upon all of you there and help you restart your lives - in NJ the phrase "Jersey Strong" became our mantra - it works for Texas and any other besieged state also...

Love and prayers,

Thanks Steve; I have been blessed through all this.  No standing water at my house whatsoever.  The scene in Houston is unbelievable.  Just too many sad stories...makes my heart heavy.
