I'd Rather Be In A Hurricane

Hurricane Irene 2011

It's tough being here in Iowa while my family and friends wait for Hurricane Irene to pass through.  I wish I was there.
 It's my son's first hurricane. As we were chatting tonight, the winds started to pick up and he told me he was scared. He also told me that the stuffed bear on my bed was scared and our dog, Roxy, looks sad.  It hurts that I couldn't hold him in my arms and comfort him until he fell asleep. I know his dad is there to comfort him, but that's supposed to be my job. I should be there.  
I miss my husband, son, other family and friends and pray that The Lord keeps them and the rest of The Bahamas safe.
