well with everything that's happened in my life i have so many changes to report. i went through a severe depression for months, my house burned down March 14, 2011. we lived from friend to friend for 2 months we were all spread out so i wasn't with my kids a lot man did i miss them. Every time we tried to get a new place we were turned down because of the fire until late in April a nice man decided to give us a chance. we now have a 3 bedroom apartment to live in. i'm staying there with 2 of my children and the 3rd visits on weekends he's staying with his aunt in order to finish school. 2 of my cats died in the fire and 2 survived. they lived at the vets office for 2 months(huge bill for that) of which one gave birth to 5 kittens 3 weeks ago.
The fire broke out in the kitchen and my daughter was able to escape and get help, my grandson who should have been at the bus stop was still in the house and no one knew it. one of the cats that died woke him up by clawing and screaming at the door which woke him up. he opened the bedroom door to find tons of smoke he ran to the window and opened it and leaned out to breathe and a fireman seen him as well as a police officer and they were able to get him out from the 2nd story bedroom, he had smoke inhalation and went to the hospital for the day. hes doing great now.
Theresa my oldest who always stayed with me is now living with her step-father along with her 2 kids i was made a grandmother again on 4-14-11 a baby boy 21 1/2 in and 8lb 1oz named Kiernan Anthony. hes now a moth old and so cute with strawberry blonde hair.
well as you can see its been a strange few months but in that time i found God. i goto church twice a week, take part in activities through church, take my children and grandson with me to church. the church has become a big part of my life now they even helped with replacing some furniture before i even became saved. so many things are still needed to make this place a home but we will get there eventually.
I try not to think about all that was lost like all my photos of the kids, 2 cats, things my grandmother had given me and made me. the whole house was a total loss, we all lost everything we owned one of the biggest heartbreaks is my 16yr old son lost his entire Lego Star Wars collection of ships. He had been collecting them since he was 6 i told him one day somehow i would replace them all.
the kids are taking the fire pretty hard and they all blame my daughter because they think it was something she did to accidentally start the fire when in fact it was an electrical problem that started it.
whew that's a lot to take in when i reread it. I came through it with God and i will continue to get through everything with Him.
