Saturday morning on my way to work I called my longtime friend Yolanda who currently resides in the Houston area. I tried three or four times and the call wouldn't go through. Finally, later that evening around 6 or 7 after I had gotten off work I was able to leave her a message to see if she was okay. She called me back around 10 last night to tell me that she was okay but she definitely does not want to have to go through that again in her lifetime.
Amen, sister. I'm just glad you're alive and well. :)
