This blog doesn't have much to do with Sparking except for the emotional part of me is having a hard time staying mindful to my program.
For those of you who don't know Washington State had a National disaster a week ago today there was a HUGE mudslide in a small town called Oso,Wa. it took out the whole town leveled 49 home completely and buried over 70 people alive it is so heart breaking..
My DH is one of those rescue/recovery men working there to do what they can for this small town & the people.
I finally got to talk to DH this morning for the first time in 5 days and its so sad to hear the grief and emotion in his voice,,they are just exhausted and it really is mentally challenging but DH doesn't complain he has told them he will stay until things are stable and they stop the recovery process. (This town is app 350 miles from Vancouver Washington where we live and they have very limited phone service now) So I sit by my phone waiting to not miss a call from him
I pray these families will be able to find strength in God to heal and that the workers can find as many of those loved ones as possible.
The President has sent the National guard in from 5 other states and Fema.
DH told me that the pictures on the news don't begin to show the devastation these people have endured.
Although there is nothing I can do but sit and worry & pray I do have to take care of myself and thought it might be a good time to pull myself together and see what I can do for my health.
It sure makes me think how small some problems can really be when you see tragedys like this..Take care all friends
