Aw Mandy... my heart goes out to you and her. It must be hard trying to discuss with a child what has happened. DD every now and then questions me about my Mom's death - she never met my Mom. I couldn't imagine having to deal with that. The entire situation really puts things in perspective, and my moaning about things is so trivial when myself and my family is blessed to have our health and each other.
Kids are resilient, she will find her way through this... even if she will be a bit down for a while. *hugs* to both of you.
I hope everybody in the parts of the US being hit with Tornados are managing to stay safe.
