Moore Ok Tornado & grandaughters

I am 61 years old and have lived in Oklahoma my entire life.  We are accustomed to tornadoes.  My husband and I listen to the weathermen from the comfort of our recliners.  We never get anxious about the warnings.  Monday afternoon, from my recliner, I watched on T.V. as the Moore tornado went down the street toward my grandaughters' schools.  Words cannot describe the terror I felt not knowing if they were safe. I was bawling and praying at the same time.  I asked God to take me and let them be safe. I knew they usually walked home from school and stayed at home until parents got home from work.  Comfort soared when I knew they were retained at school.  The family franticly sent text messages trying to locate them.  Finally, the 13 year sent a text saying they were in a vehicle heading North away from the tornado. We were all fortunate because they are safe and their home was sparred.  During the moments I did not know if my grandaughters would be ok, I thought, "why didn't I spend more time with them instead of spending so many hours in the bakery?"  Time is a gift; we cannot get back even one minute.
