Tornados Tornados Go Away!

I am thankfully to be able to write tonight. So many in our area and those who live in Dallas were struck by such horrible weather today, including at least a dozen tornado's that blew across the Dallas/East Texas Area this evening. We ourselves were under a Tornado watch for awhile, but thankfully we just had some heavy rainfall and gusty winds. We said a special prayer tonight for all those suffering through such disasters. The rain is steadily falling now but the worst has past.

During the worst of the storms this evening Olivia became frightened at all the thunder and lighting and heavy winds. I would have assumed her instant reaction would have been to jump in either Josh or I's lap, but that was not the case. She said "Mommy I need to hold Kiley". I was touched by this beautiful expression of love and comfort, I feel it is something dear and special that is felt and shared between sisters. I sat Kiley in her lap and they both just sat there calm as can be. It really made my heart smile. As an older sister myself I remember that feeling so vividly, I found my little sister to be a very large source of comfort for me during times of distress, my instinct was always to protect her. I am grateful to see this same love shared between my girls. As I watched them tonight I could only hope the beauty of that moment would be something they would continue to share for the rest of their lives together.

  1. What a precious moment. Olivia looks like a little mother who has everything under control.
