  1. I understand too, But loss of home in a natural disaster – Tornado..EF5…yet I just love how it is written…

    • Very scary and traumatic! Hope your family was unharmed in the process!

      • My family survived in such an amazing way _- dad was @ 7th street walmart, my mom sister & dog hid in the pantry (and were kept safe by God), I was north of town with my husband (My boyfriend @ the time) youngest brother just a little south…come on over and read the blog I think we have some similarities too

        • SO very lucky! Sometimes it takes tragedy and struggle to really show us how blessed we really are. On my way over now!

  2. Wow! So well written. And what a hard thing to go through. You are amazing and articulate in sharing the fabulous lessons you walked away with and the choices you made to put your family first.

    What an example!

    Thanks so much for sharing!

    And YOU are the reason I keep looking forward. :)

  4. Wow, Erica. You are a strong woman to have gone through what you have. I also believe that everything happens for a reason. There’s a lesson in everything that happens, and it’s great to see the changes that you made as a result. Very inspiring!

  5. Isn’t it funny how the most traumatic experiences end up teaching us lifelong lessons and changing us forever. You are an amazing woman and I admire the way you’ve taken the ashes of your life and used them for good!
