For most of us mom was our comforter, therapist, soother, teacher and defender when we were too young to understand what was going on, an island of comfort in a sea of madness.
Mother of four Stephanie Vandewalker recently put her motherly skills to work as hail the size of golf balls pounded her minivan while she was waiting for her oldest child to get out of school.
Stephanie's children were really shaken up as the hail beat down and broke the back window, and even though she was just as freaked out as they were Stephanie tried to keep them calm by telling them "We're gonna be OK, don't worry":
I was outside of the elementary school waiting to pick up my first grader, and just as the bell rang the sky started assaulting us with giant hail balls of doom. The hail storm came out of nowhere, and we are very thankful none of the kids had been released from school before the hail began falling. The Honda Odyssey is battered and broken, but the kids are all safe.
