Hi Jen,

I sent Erika a txt msg earlier to check on her. She sent me a msg saying she is ok. I sure hope she stays well and safe.

I'm sure worried about her too. What a mess down there!! I feel so bad for our Aussie brothers and sisters.

Hugs,

Sherry

aww thanx jen.....we r pretty well saturated and the worst will happen thurs when all the flood water hits the brisbane river, however im confident that i will escape the major flooding. the local creeks and rivers r gushing torrents but should hold their banks. sorry to hear about yr mums place...devastation is surrounding everything.......my friends house in ipswich is totally cut off and looks like its in the middle of the lake....... we have an escape plan tho for just in case..... a sad story on the news was regarding the pet shop in Toowoomba......as the wall of water came thru the main street, it hit the shop...no furry survivors at all. im touched tho at the response of aussies and the help offered by the ppl......some groups r soley raising money and collecting pet food/supplies for ppls pets....the furries have not been forgotten!!!!

the following is on face book...just an interesting bit of info.......

To the Indonesian Tsunami, Aust gives $1 billion in aid, Pakistan floods, Aust gives $66.5 million in aid. THE WORST floods in Australian history destroys homes, towns, life & businesses, Aust government donates a lousy $1 million. Pull your finger out Anna Bligh & Gillard & start looking after your own. Post this to try & make them wake the hell up! Other countries may donate too... PLEASE! keep posting this!
thanku jen for thinking of me and i sure hope to chat with u soon.

Hi Jen,

I am so sorry about your mom's house.  I'm so glad she is ok as well as your sisters.  Gosh it's so sad about what's going on down here.  It's devastating.  So many people missing and some people that have died.  I hate that this is happening.  So many people have lost their homes.  It's so sad.  When I was watching it on the news this morning, they were saying that it was like a tsunami....a huge wall of water came crashing down and tossing cars like they were toys.  I'll be so glad when the rain comes to an end and the flooding stops.  Jeez Louise!

l am so glad your okay Erika l honestly  just cant get through to you atm l think  all the phone lines are jammed just keep us posted .And  you know erika if you need anything or even a bed for a while you have one here

And thanks sherry  my family is okay  its sad mum lost her house but  she was fortunate and given plenty of warning to get out so she has the things that cant be replaced like photos etc the rest insurance will cover , and yes l have only seen the news but it is like a nightmare for people.Aussies are tough and  the country will pull together to help   everyone in need like they did  a few years ago when the bush fires hit

Erika dear.  I thank God that your home, and especially your life, was spared from the Brisbane floods.  I'm so happy that you are safe and well.  That goes for you and your family (including Maggie!) and friends too.  I'm missing my Aussie sister today!

I love you heaps and +1 to whatever you say!!!

Jen and Erica, You have both been on my mind this week because of this terrible news!  I'm so glad you are ok even though it IS affecting you / your family.  Please stay safe and know lots of prayers are going your way.  Nature can be so devastating...it's scary. Please, please take care.
