Last night there was a tornado that touched down in Gorham, Maine. This is the link to the story from the local news (http://www.wcsh6.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=121409&catid=2)
When we came out of the basement Colby said, “That tornado was really scary. I can not stop thinking about it. I love Sawyer.” Apparently Colby’s brush with his first tornado gave him some new perspective.
It did for me too. It made me realize that all I really need to make me happy was sitting in that basement – Jay and our two boys. Well maybe not all I need, because our dog Wilbur is too old to go up and down stairs. He was hiding in the shower of our first floor bathroom instead.
This morning as I left for work Colby was playing “tornado” with his Legos.
