Wow...I can't believe it has been longer than a week since I posted anything. Actually the last post was really a prayer request for one of the local mothers in my small town. Oh what a week of sadness. I continue to think of this mother and just pray for all of them, including the firefighters who were doing the rescues. I have found myself shedding a few tears now and then. I just can't even imagine how she is even getting through with it all.
The town has been so supporting. They have raised money by having a fish fry. They had a candle light vigils. The local cemetery donated 8 plots to their family. All funeral services were covered in full. The largest church in town opened their doors to have a memorial service for them. I wasn't able to attend but read and heard all about it. The house still remains all charred and in ashes.
The saddest thing of this whole ordeal was reading on how the firefighters were not able to rescue the boys out of the home because the house was up in flames and the firefighters would have been risking their own lives if they had gone back in the house. They had to retreat when they heard the evacuation call. One of the firefighters said that all of his heart, soul and might didn't want to retreat but he had to, otherwise his own 4 children would have been fatherless. Wow...I can't even begin to imagine even the heartache the firefighters are going through also. Only by God's power can they be mended.
In other news....I've been thinking of how I need to get back to blogging. I wonder what I would blog about....? I sometimes wonder if people even care what I say. I know that's not true.... that there are many of you who read....who enjoy reading what I'm going through and what I have to say. Even when I think I have absolutely nothing to say. I just RAMBLE. Like I'm doing right now.
So my husband says that when I type in this pyramid form of centering my text is rather dumb.
Well he didn't say exactly in those words.
He just said that it doesn't make any sense to type this way and it rather confusing.
I sorta like being a bit different.
I like reading blogs that are a bit different....so I want to be different.
Does that make any sense at all?
It sometimes good to ramble and to be annoying.
I don't know....maybe it will make life a bit more interesting to be a bit bizarre.
But then who will read my posts.
Probably lose some of my followers because you all would think I have lost my mind.
Maybe you don't like my pyrimad centered typing....maybe you do.
Don't worry you don't need to leave any comments telling me if you like it or not.
I don't want to hear it if you hate it and think it's plain old annoying.
Ok...now back to being a bit normal. I have been busy this month making a thankful banner. I thought I needed to be a bit more thankful. I was inspired by Mrs. Taffy at My Life on A Taffy Pull. She started a thankfulness challenge. I thought.... I've been complaining way to much when there is so much to be thankful for. Then I envisioned listing several things I am thankful for....cutting out paper pumpkins, leaves, and hands....and writing these things on each one of these cut outs. The children also shared what they are thankful for and voila...the wall of thankfulness was birthed.
It will stay up for this month or until I create something for next month. Yeah....I've been in the crafty type of mood. It's also good to just sit there and read all those things we are thankful for while we eat dinner.
Ok...I best get going. I want to post more frequently and maybe to just RAMBLE. Why not? Right? Maybe I just might get more comments or more followers. You never know.....
