I cannot believe it has been a week since I got the frantic phone call from my daughter. Mom she said my house is burning. It was 15 degrees at the time they came out of their burning house. I was so afraid, so much was going through my mind. Are they all out? Is anyone hurt?
Amanda was crying so hard I could not understand what she was saying. She kept repeating Asa's name. My heart went into my stomach. She was trying to tell me that she had taken the children over to a neighbor and Asa was making sure the little ones were okay. What a brave little boy!!!!!
On this cold night they came out only in their new pjs my husband and I had gotten them for Christmas Eve night.
We are so thanking God for so many miracles that occur on this night. No one was hurt, no one got smoke into their lungs, and no one came down with the flu with the cold temps.
This has been a very long week for my daughter, her children, my husband and myself.
You all have been such a Blessing to us. The love we have been shown in this land of blog has been unmeasurable. You have showered us with prayers, love and lots more love. Hope. So many have written to say they were sending things for them. My heart has been so full. The way you all have gone above the call of duty to help us. My friends this will never be forgotten.
I had bought a sketch book last year for my Daughter and turned it into a scrapbook for her. She had put all the things the children had made for her, their report cards, special papers and so forth. She has cried many times over the loss of this. She even went back to the house in hopes of finding it. Of course it is gone. So today I was thinking why not make a scrape book with all things connected with the fire. The news paper articles, cards and notes from all of you. My goal in doing this is to turn it around so she can see and remember all the Blessings she received. Of course we will make a new scrapbook to keep the things of the Children's.
There are not enough words for me to tell you had I feel. I cannot thank- you enough for all of your generosity. My Family and myself send you all our love!!!!!!!!!!!
