You are stronger than you think you are…….♡
This flower is hanging on the front porch at my parent’s home in Moore, Oklahoma. It was there before the tornado, and it remained after the storm as well. The window directly behind this plant is shattered to pieces. The siding is obviously coated in muck and ick. But just look at this flower! What a wonderful representation of the spirit of the people of Oklahoma. . .
Happy Monday, friends. Be nice to each other ♥
Truly amazing! ❤
So lovely to see. That tornado must have been really scary.
The scariest thing was not being able to get to my folks to help them for several days. They had to lock down the town for safety reasons..
I’m with Diana. That is truly amazing. Very pretty plant. Do you know the name of it?
I will ask my mom!
I remember watching the live coverage of it and feeling so sick and helpless. Everyone can take inspiration from the resilience of those folks.
We were so worried….and we couldn’t get to my folks….no one was allowed in for 5 days. Our kids tried and were turned back…. It is still so strange when we go there. Some lots are completely empty, others have rebuilt and other than no mature trees….you’d never know anything ever occurred. Resilient indeed!
Pretty amazing! Tornadoes scare me to death, but we don’t have them in CA. It sounds like the damage was minimal here, but very random! Glad everyone is ok – not OK! 🙂
♡Houses all around were totally gone….my folks were very fortunate!
Oh my! I hope they were in a safe place while it was going on! 🙂
They were in the laundry room. They now have a cellar!!!
That sounds safer! I grew up in Indiana. Almost every house had a basement. I never went through a tornado, but we had warnings often enough to be glad we had a basement. So scary!
Not many basements in that part of OK. If you ever go to Moore, almost every standing house has a cellar…..some in the front yard.
