    All I can say is WOW. So glad you made it through, and you are so lucky to have family support nearby. As others have said, if there is anything we can do to help: supplies, etc, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Oh my your strength and motherly instinct is admirable. I just sobbed reading your post. My heart feels heavy for your family and all those that have been affected. If you need anything please let us know. I have a stock of extra one touch strips if you need any. I also have Sure-t's that my daughter does not like so I would be happy to send them your way.

    I am so sorry for your tremendous loss, but so glad you are all safe and healthy. My boys are 7 and 8, and we have quite a lot of little boys' clothing we can get to you if needed. If you do, feel free to PM me an address where they can be sent--will be more than happy to do so.

    Prayers and thoughts to you, your family, and your community as you recover and rebuild.

    I am so sorry for the loss suffered by the families in Joplin. Your story was gripping and I'm glad your family is safe. My heart goes out to all of who have lost loved ones in all the recent storms/floods. Praying here.

    OMG! I was bought to tears reading your story. I can only imagine the panic and terror of going through such a thing.:(

    I am truly sorry for the loss of your house, but I am glad you and your family are ok, physically at least. I will be thinking of you and I wish there was more I could do.:(

    What a miracle!!!!!!

    I started crying reading what your family has endured. I pray for peace for your family. Please let us know if there is anything you need.

    Your calling out to Jesus during the storm...a miracle! I have been taught that there is power in speaking Jesus' Holy name.

    The quote below says it beautifully.

    "The Holy Name of Jesus is, first of all, an all-powerful prayer. Our Lord Himself solemnly promises that whatever we ask the Father in His Name we shall receive. God never fails to keep His word."
