I hold my girls tighter now that I know that everything can be taken in a moment. Although we didn't loose everything we lost enough. We lost alot of our birds, the babies, which is the hardest for my oldest, we lost everything we worked hard to build and create. But it can all be replaced, we can start over, we can build again. And we will. It just takes time. When we go out each morning my youngest reminds us that there was a fire, she reminds us that our chickens are gone, not because she truly understands but because she witnessed it. She seen the fire trucks, with the long hoses, making it "rain" on our chicken coop.
I have taken away alot because of what happened. That we are strong with each other, that we appreciate the things we have accomplished, and we will be okay. It might be overwhelming now in this moment but it will be better in the next. Thank you to everyone that has sent prayers, thoughts and well wishes. And thank you to everyone who is helping to clear and clean and hopefully eventually rebuild.
You are all the reason we start this adventure to begin with!
