A Friend's Warning
Yesterday's news stories focussed on the many tornados throughout the South. At noon, while preparing lunch, my phone rang. My friend, Gloria Lessler, who lives in New York, called because she'd just seen on her TV, a report that a tornado was heading to Shreveport. I did put the TV on and listened to the reports of a tornado that had touched down in Canton, another in Siloam Springs, and warnings of one near Carthage. The storms were moving east, but thankfully our area just had a few heavy downpours. This morning's newspaper reported a number of deaths in Arkansas. I am so fortunate to have a friend like Gloria. Thank you.
