I thought I would make a post dedicated to Joplin Missouri. Less than a year ago my husband and I bought a house just north of Joplin. We put our old house up for sale in Joplin. Sunday, many of my old neighbors lost their homes in the terrible storm. Our old house was located in one of the harder hit areas of Joplin and is left partially standing.
My cousin and her family lost their home just a few blocks away. All my family has been accounted for and is safe. I wish I could say the same for everyone I know. Please pray for Joplin! The devastation this storm has left behind is heart breaking. My heart aches for my family and friends that have lost so much.
