Tornados Won’t Keep Us Down

Yesterday, my husband and I made a trip to Borden, IN, to what used to be the home of our dear friends.  Although their home still stands, albeit in an uninhabitable form, their barn and animals were swept away like a house of cards in a breeze. 

When we began to drive down their road, I felt myself feeling an intense anxiety and overwhelming sadness at what was before our eyes.  I had seen it on the news time and again, but it is so different when you are actually there.  I wasn’t sure what to say, what to do, or how to help.  However, once we saw our friends, those feelings of anxiety quickly went away, and there were hugs and smiles all around. 

When it came down to it, I don’t think they cared whether we carried branches, handed out food, or did anything other than just talk.

They just cared that we came.

How have you been a part of the tornado recovery effort?  Please share with us how it has affected you.
