Our Brush With Death.

Last Update: June 19, 2016

This past Friday, my husband and I were getting ready to do my Avon route when it started raining and then hailing. The winds were picking up and the sky turned so dark, it was only 11am, but it felt like 10pm. It was very scary watching the sky change and it wasn't getting any better, part of the sky was a very eerie green color. I was getting pretty scared to leave town to do the route because our daughter was at her apartment and I knew, that if she knew what was going on, she would be freaking out the whole time we would be gone. So we called her and she was still sleeping. We told her to get up and get ready. The weather was really bad and we were coming to get her and Ruby (her pug) and take them home with us. She started to cry uncontrollably. We decided to wait out the storm and do the route later in the day.

It brought me back to a unforgettable time in our lives, just 6 years ago to the day. Friday was the 6th year anniversary of the tornado that came whipping through our town and made a trail of destruction, and our house was in that trail. You might have seen the picture that's in my blog, the Associated Press took it and ran with it. It went all over the world.

For some reason, I feel led to share it with you, http://mybeautifulbeautybusiness.com/our-brush-wit... I hope that if you read the whole story it will encourage you and inspire you. Believe me, it is well worth reading. I wrote it soon after our experience when it was still very fresh in my mind.

Thank you for allowing me to share our story!

Cindy

Hi Cindy-Thank you for sharing your story-Truly a miracle! I tried to leave a comment there also, but the capcha code kept blocking me. :)

You're welcome! Do you have any idea why the capcha code blocked you, so I can fix it if I need to? I sent myself a comment on there and had no problem, but that could be because I'm already connected.

I don't know-I tried it 3 times, and I believe I had the code right, so I'm just not sure. Maybe something with my old computer. Anyway-inspiring, heart-lifting story! :)
