Hey there. If you’ve been reading my blog for very long, you know that I share bits about my life, but I keep it pretty light. You also must know that no one’s life is carefree all the time.
At 2:10 this morning, my sister’s house burned to the ground. I’ve talked about Bea on the blog; in fact, she’s the one who originally started this blog with me. She and her family are all safe, but they’ve lost everything. Saying that sounds wrong, because they’re here and they’re all safe, thank God. They haven’t lost everything, and they will be okay.
My brother-in-law was burned, but because my sister thought so quickly and covered his back with snow, his skin will heal very quickly. Bea is amazing. She woke up everyone and got all of them out of the house minutes before it was engulfed. I’ve always said she is the bravest person I know. I’m in awe of her. I am looking at the faces of her three sweet kids, and I am just so grateful.
We’ve created a donation badge for her family. I’m adding it to the sidebar of the blog. I know you don’t know my sister, and you may never, ever meet me. But I also know this blogging community is remarkably caring. More than anything, I’m asking for your prayers and your good thoughts to be sent out into the universe. For Bea and Jim, for Evie and Owen and Ayden. Thanks.
