Thank the one neighbor who graciously gave money when I know they don't have it to give, and thank you for protecting my friends. They had no insurance as renters, they lost 2 cars in the fire also. Red Cross put them up in a hotel for tonight, I've offered my home to them if they need a place to stay.
Bless the ones who lost everything in the house fire, welcome into your arms the pets that did not make it out and bless my son Jason who is so distraught over the fact that his best friends are gone, he loves that family like his own and I know he wants all of them to move in with us. Help me Lord to help him get over this tough time.
We are watching their two dogs tonight, a Boxer/Pitbull mix and a Siberian Husky. They are camped out on my back porch tonight. Snuggle close together pups, it will be cold tonight. I've fixed up a area on my enclosed back porch for them with lots of blankets and pillows.
I'm very tired tonight as I'm sure Karen and her family are exhausted too, we tried to salvage some pictures and afew clothes from the house after the fireman gave us the go ahead to go back inside. (We were told we shouldn't go in, but since we are covered in snow and ice, the rain /sleet tonight would ruin the only room left in the house that had a few things we could try to save.)
