Storms, Family and Animals

It's Spring season aka Tornado Season

in the Tornado Alley, and Abilene happens to be IN Tornado Alley. *sigh*. There have been some close calls, and we follow the NOAA radar daily, keep an ear open for any warning sirens from our weather radio, and just keep praying.

Spring is also the season for new life and renewal.. Before anyone jumps to conclusions, we're talking about our PETS here :P

Remember Fluffy? She adopted us some months ago, and apparently was pregnant at that time unbeknown to us, and she finally had 8, yes, EIGHT puppies almost a week ago.

Also, Momma's kitties are now a little over 2 weeks.

Other happenings:

Walter celebrated his 88th birthday late April, and here's to many many more wonderful blessed years ahead.

Stephanie had an opening featuring her blown-glass art work at the Center for Contemporary Arts here in Abilene last week. It was amazing.

Psalms 107:28-30

"Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven."

The kittens are so cute! I want to hug them so badly. Is their mom veyr protective of them? Because last time when I went to touch this kitten its mom ran over and scratch me on the arm which hurts like crazy >.<

Anyway happy 88th birthday to Walter! May his wishes all come true! I've heard this famous quote before, "We're alive today not becuase we're lucky but we survived time." Very meaningful :)

I read on the newspapers about that freak tornado disaster! The aerial photo they took makes me think of hiroshima when the atomic bomb flatenned every single building! OMG, that's scary! Take care!
