In Hoover, Alabama here (a suburb of Birmingham) we had the greatest time in such a "havoc situation". We all met new people & everyone helped everyone. The funny thing is, some of the people we all met were actually just neighbors that lived 3 & 4 houses down from one another. It's almost sad that none of us knew each other until we needed to lean on one another, but now that we do know each other, it feels a little more like home. Dads & sons loaded up in their trucks and dished out rides to the stores. My car got stuck sideways on a slope blocking the Main Street in our neighborhood for folks to get to the grocery, so teens got out there lawn mowers & 4 wheelers and started taking lists & money to go get what the elders needed from the store. I was so proud of the ALL the teen boys that are from our neighborhood. They were truly kind & didn't try & make money off of people like I heard some kids were doing in another neighborhood. I had to walk to my house, car, grocery & in-laws while my 10 year old stayed home alone. Thank God for FaceTime! I was asked on several occasions if I needed a ride & a few guys even tried to move my car from the middle of the road. Times like these I honestly feel that God was testing us all. Wondering if we would tear each other apart & turn on one another or if he could trust that we would do what was right & help those in need.
