I just stopped into work for a few minutes... We have a huge meeting at 9:00 a.m. with the insurance agent, adjuster and fire inspector. I am nervous. These guys are trained to talk you into a corner so I am concerned.At this point there are a few things going on. There is talk from a couple different companies about gutting the whole house. I think we'll find out more today about that. There would be two reasons to gut the house. One is the smell is incredible! The washer was on fire and the plastic just spread throughout the house. The other reason is electrical. If the wiring is burnt throughout the house, then they have to re-wire the whole thing.If we could have a care package right now, it would include stuff for the kids to do...maybe word finds, puzzles, something to keep them occupied. I'm not sure what all we need right now.Here is what I'm feeling right now. I really feel at peace. I know that God protected us during that fire. So many terrible things could have happened but we got out of the house, none of our pictures were damaged, our animals are out. This is a huge inconvenience, and at times, totally overwhelming, but our family unit is strong right now. I would like prayer that our unit remains strong.
If anyone is interested in sending a care package to Heather and her family, please contact me and I'll get you an address.
