An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
A fellow blogger writes:
I get a knock on my door this morning, it’s the land lord of my ex wife and the mother of my two daughters. He knows me, and couldn’t figure out how to get a hold of her…
Their house burned completely down a few hours ago; their pets, which include a family dog and a couple of cats, were all destroyed in the blaze along with everything they own. They were in school when it happened, thank the Lord for that.
I’ll post more later, any supportive prayers and thoughts for my Erica and Melody would be much appreciated. I’ll go without before they should have to.
As I had briefly touched on yesterday my daughters home, pets, years of accumulated what-nots, furniture, every piece of clothing and other miscellaneous property that would cover everything else (literally everything) went up in an inferno…
They are trying to pick up the pieces and putting their faith in God at this hour. Their community, friends, and family are starting to pull together and helping out in a myriad of ways.
It goes without saying; that having lost it all, it’s going to take some time for them to get back on track emotionally and of course financially. I’m doing as much as I can as a disabled veteran with my income, more importantly with my unconditional love and support. I always have and I always will go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to my girls.
Semper Fidelis – Always Faithful: To God, Country, Corps, and Family.
As you can see, there is nothing left. It’s difficult enough for adults to start from scratch, but imagine how hard it is to explain to kids why everything they had is gone, including loved pets. I know it’s tough times right now, for everybody, but if everyone could chip in a few bucks, then perhaps, this family could make a new start. There is a Pay Pal button on the second post where you can make a donation, if you are so inclined. If you can’t help financially, please, pray for them. Prayers are always important.
