When I write my posts for my blog, I never know how much personal information I should share with you. This bit of information I feel you need to know about, because it affects my blog and suppling you with the projects and information you want and deserve. This post I write with a heavy heart…
On Tuesday we had a house fire. It destroyed our home. Everyone is safe and for that I'm, oh, so thankful, but it's still devastating. I'm writing this post from my daughter's house. I wanted to let you know, because I don't know when I'm going to be able to design any new projects to post about. I do have some drafts ready and I'll post those next week.
I am forever grateful to my family and my dearest friends who have all been here in body and spirit. Today, one friend in contracting provided his crew to board up windows and throw a tarp over the roof. Thanks Kevin. Two other friends and my husband emptied all the damaged items and debris in our home. Thanks Todd and Rudy. One other friend went to Walmart to get us all the necessary incidentals we need. Thanks Nancy. My cousins Linda and Steve, Aunt Alice and Uncle Dave brought us food, blankets, and much need moral support and money. Linda called the Red Cross and they were here as well. Thank you. Ellen, thank you, thank you, thank you! My other dear friend Marisa told her boss about our situation and he donated two dumpsters and when Marisa called the dumpster company, they threw in another dumpster. And, my daughter Megan spent all day washing our salvageable clothes. Dawn and Charlie who did much for my soul and spirit. Everyone's calls and text messages have all given me strength and I am truly grateful to all of you. I want to thank my husband John, who has been a tower of strength and comfort for me.
Here's a video, if you care to view the fire.
This world is filled with unselfish people, who, genuinely care for others. In that respect I am the luckiest person in the world. Please pray for us.
With a thankful heart,
