This is the first line in a song that Noah’s favorite teacher wrote for him.
I just got done watching the news…I am going to have to turn it off for a while, it is just gut wrenching.
24 inches of rain in 24 hours, death toll unknown because they can not get to people, Douglas County is the first county in the state to be declared under a State of Emergency…and I am sure there are many more to follow.
We are safe, for now. I am worried about Nick who chose to ride it out at the college. He can not get to his truck, and we are praying that it is there when he can finally get across campus…BUT he is safe.
Our thoughts are with all our friends who are battling the ever rising waters…and with the parents of the young man from our high school who drowned trying to drive his truck across the creek waters covering the roads.
Be safe and hug your kids a little longer tonight.
It may never be easy but it will always be worth it.
