I'm proud to be from Minnesota.
We planned to spend our 4th of July helping ( & visiting) a good friend -
when a pretty bad storm hit.
Before we had a chance to really worry about home...
A friend had sent us pictures of our yard.
Then another friend - and another.
So we cut our vacation very short and drove back home.
It wasn't pretty - but it's all fixable.
Shortly after, we learned the family my sister was staying with
was much worse off than us.
So we got a sitter and went on a date 90 miles away to go help.
yes... alone without children = a date!
Today we are home again - with some help of our own.
From Family & Friends - so it doesn't seem so much like work.
But more like the 4th of July weekend we had planned to begin with.
Food, Family, Friends, Fireworks...
And now - thanks to God...
Lots and Lots of Firewood.
