Rollercoaster


I am completely and utterly relieved. My friends and family are all safe. Some property is still in doubt, but the irreplaceable is safe.

I am overwhelmed by the scale of the destruction. Places I have loved are now all gone. Other places I love are still under threat.

I feel a part of my heart breaking when I hear the burnt out ask people not to donate fridges and microwaves. "The thought is nice, but it reminds me I have nowhere to put them". My heart breaks again when I hear an appeal for suits so that people have something to wear to the funerals.

I hope that those who started these fires have enough flames when they burn in hell.

I want to give, and give, and give to this appeal

I've thought about you so much during these awful fires. I should have checked your blog yesterday and would have been somewhat relieved. Thank goodness your family is o.k. Thanks for visiting Love for Home...

Hi, thisisme: So happy to hear that you are safe. This has been an absolutely horrible unbelievable ordeal. On our TV here, they are calling it an act of murder. I haven't heard from you in a while and thought I should check in on you. Hope all is well otherwise. Best. D

It has been a while. I've missed you!
