Yesterday was a devastating day for Oklahoma. Some families lost their homes and others lost family members. I cant even imagine the pain that they are experiencing right now. My prayers are with them.
My friend Heather lives in OKC. She has twin girls who are almost 2 years old and a loving husband. Her husband was at work yesterday when the storms came thru. Me, Heather and our other friend Amanda were texting each other like we do everyday. I wasn’t even aware there was such bad weather headed their way. I noticed a text from Amanda asking Heather if she was ok. I didn’t know what was going on and then Heather replied with “I have the girls in the cellar and the tornado is over us”. My heart dropped and I started praying so hard for my dear friend and those beautiful girls. Me and Amanda kept texting her during it to see if they were okay. Heather then told us she thought her house was gone because she heard such big debris hit the cellar door. She was terrified. We kept telling her we were praying for her but in all honestly my heart was braking into pieces and just hoping her theory wasn’t true, After the storm passed Heather, Tillie and Tensley stepped out to what she didn’t want confirmed and that was their home was gone. Everything was just gone. Heather is so brave for grabbing her girls all by herself and getting them to safety. She would tell you it was nothing but I don’t know if I could’ve reacted so quickly.
Sadly this isn’t the first time this has happened to the Mill family. They lost their previous home in another tornado in 1999. No one should ever experience that twice in a lifetime. No one should ever experience it at all.
Me, Amanda and a few other of our friends have setup a PayPal fundraiser for Heather and her family. Donations would help them get back on their feet and live for the time being.
Here are a few pictures of the girls on a vacation they recently took.
If you would like to send the girls diapers, clothes, shoes and/or toys just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Clothing size- 24M/2T Shoe size- 6/7 Diaper size-5 Toys-they love Mickey Mouse Club House. They love books and musical toys. Pretty much the normal toddler toys. If you shop on diapers.com and spend $50 that qualifies for free shipping. So just email me if you would like to send them any goods and I’m sure it would be greatly appreciated.
For all the other families that have been affected.. I know my local Chic Fil’ A is taking up donations of gift cards, water and ect. If you would like to help all the other families as well try checking into that!
Oklahoma we are praying for you ALL!
