I want to thank everyone who stopped by and left such kind and caring comments yesterday.
I am accepting the fact that a house is just wood, glass, cement, metal and shingles...
I have visited with my mom, both of our girls, and my cousin, Carol Ann, and we all have wonderful memories of time spent on the family farm. These can never be erased.
There are families all over the Midwest...all over the country that have lost their homes to floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and wild fires...
(the above photos were taken of a community an hour east of here)
My heart breaks for all of you.
A young couple rents our farmhouse and takes care of the maintenance.
Keep them in your prayers.
They have 3 young boys...
and lots of Kitties.
They have all been displaced.
I talked to Lori this afternoon. The water had risen over the driveway by the time they left last night. This morning the water was up into the shop and into the hedge that surrounds the house. It is just a matter of time before it is into the house.
We all have good memories of that magnificent farmhouse.
