"To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me."

Tomorrow morning bright and early we are headed home to Clear Lake City, to our home less than 3 miles from Galveston Bay. I pray we have a home to come home to. I expect we do, but we have no way of knowing for sure. Pictures from areas all around us show devastation beyond belief - a true disaster area. I expect we have some damage, I just don't know how much. I know we do not have power as of right now (8:30 Saturday night). The not knowing is killing us. The drive home will be a long one.
I am a GRITS (Girl Raised In The South), a 3rd generation Texan with roots in Mississippi and Tennessee. I have a wonderful husband and three great kids - a son in the Navy, an daughter studying Theatre at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, and a son who plays trombone in the high school band. My mom is a three-time survivor of breast cancer - a disease that affects mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends - please click on the link below to help fund mammograms for women who can't afford them!
