Tennessee Flooding

Many of you have asked me recently how my mom has been doing since she lost her home in the Tennessee floods.  Thanks for your concern and your continued prayers.

At this point mom is doing very well.  She is living with my brother and sister-in-law and we're working on what the long-term, permanent solution will be for her.  It'll be another house at some point but we're working on what that will be.

Mom lost just about everything in the flood.  She was able to protect (and salvage) some pictures and other items of special significance.  She was also able to get almost all of her clothing and a decent amount of kitchen stuff.  Practically all of her appliances and furnishings were destroyed.  What we were able to save is now in storage with other family members.

Mom is thankful for what she does have and is thankful for life (other people in our hometown were not so fortunate).  With that as a backdrop, she is pushing through with a grateful and even anticipatory spirit.  We'll see what the next chapter brings.
