Many of you know that my hometown of Moore Oklahoma was hit by a major tornado. You can read my story here and she my grandson's TV interview here.

Today, I want to publicly thank everyone who prayed or helped my family. We are all doing well, considering what we have been through. 

We are very blessed, all of our family member are safe and while my daughter's house has been totaled out, my house was not damaged; and Lindsay and her 3 sweet boys, were able to stay with me until housing could be found for them.

The team keep everything going here and were so supportive of me in so many ways. I felt every one of their cyber hugs.

A owe a special thanks to Sheena for doing the posts here that keep the challenges running. My power and internet were now existent at first, then unreliable for several weeks. 

Another person who was incredibly kind was Krista Smith from Saturated Canary. She designed an image and sold it on the day of it's reveal for $1, giving all of the sales for that day to my daughter.

Many on the team bought the image and used it on for this challenge. Thank you to everyone who bought the image. Krista's kind heart is legendary.

If you would like the image, it is available at full price in Krista's shop.  The proceeds will not go to my daughter, but I hope lots of you buy "Sweet Oklahoma," to support Krista for supporting me.

Thank you, Krista.
