Home Safe and Sound

These are my super awesome parents.  

They just lived through the worst experience of their lives.

My parent's along with my Aunt and Uncle, were passengers on board the Carnival Cruise ship Triumph.

In case you live in a cave, or just don't pay much attention to the news you've probably heard about this cruise line.  

They were adrift in the ocean for 5 days without power, little running water, toilets that were overflowing, an indescribably stench of human waste, very little food and water, no air conditioning or circulation in their rooms, the huge ship listing from side to side, and some just plain crazy people.

I'm not going to tell you their story because I wasn't there, and I can't even begin to imagine what that would have been like.  My mom has agreed to write a guest post for my blog about her experience.  

I'm just thankful they are home now and safe.

 This was the camp they set up using sheets and robe ties.  Pretty nifty if you ask me.
They slept on the deck when the smell, and temperature in the cabins became unbearable.

If this cruise mishap has taught me anything, it's to cherish every minute you have with your family.
