A Real Set Back, But NOT a Tragedy!

photo.JPG
I haven't been able to access my blog for a week now, but I have an excuse. Our house burned to the ground last Tuesday night. Here is a pitiful photo from my phone. This is from the garage side looking in to the house. The shell of a car was my husband's fairly new car. I'm told that coming back from a fire is a long process, so I'm hoping that blogging a little about it will help me.

                                                    photo.JPG 
The fire started in the garage and quickly spread to the attic in the house. Our garage, although detached, was connected to the house with a breezeway and roof. We were told that our attic was on fire before we even knew there was a problem. We saw our lights flickering and looked out the window to see the garage on fire! We grabbed the cat, my purse, and the hard drive and ran out barefooted.  Poor little Sugarplum, the very talented cat you've seen in previous posts, was in such a panic she fought me really hard to get out of my arms, but I managed to hold on to her.
Our house was a total loss. Since we live out in the country, the volunteer fire department couldn't get there in time to save it despite their heroic efforts. Fire departments from four surrounding counties came. There just wasn't enough water to control the flames.
I stood among MANY friends and family who showed up to support us. Our sweet neighbors brought us shoes to put on and water to drink. It is very surreal to stand and watch your house burn. I shook uncontrollably for several hours despite the heat. I kept thinking, "This is not the kind of thing that happens to ME!"
Thank goodness, God took care of us and we escaped unharmed. We are so blessed to have family nearby. My parents have a little apartment above part of their house and we are very comfortable here until we can rebuild or find a house. We are keeping this in perspective, too. This is NOT a tragic loss. Losing a child or a spouse would fall into that category. We will come back from this and be just fine. We have each other as well as family. We don't need anything except patience and a clear mind to deal with the aftermath. Insurance will eventually replace most of what we needed. We're sad, but not grieving the loss of material possessions.
I am not writing this to gain your sympathy. Many of you out there are suffering losses much greater than this and I DO realize that! I'm so thankful for all my blessings!
I will participate in the Wicked blog hop started next week. My projects are gone, but I had a couple of photos during the process that I had taken with my phone to show my sister what I was doing. I will show those. You won't see them in their finished state, but close enough that you can use your imagination!
Thank you so much for being here, reading this, and coming back in the future. I will get back on track. My camera will be replaced as well as my computer. (I am borrowing one now.) In the meantime, blessings to you!!!

  2. I can relate - although not a total loss, we have had two chimney fires and it takes a while to focus on the reality. You amaze me how clear you are and I send my blessings and prayers.

  4. Oh Linda!!!! I can't imagine what you are going through. So very sorry that you lost everything like that. My father was burned out years before I was around; and it has always been my biggest fear.
    Take care and stay positive; as I can see you are doing.

  8. Linda I am so sorry to hear your sad news and although you have a fantastic perspective of this, it is still devastating. I must admit I think it is something I always fear, especially with all the electrical things we seem to run now. I hope everything is replaced quickly and you can get back to normal soon. So glad that you are all safe. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Susie x

  9. Linda Dear my heart is breaking for you and your husband. Your beautiful spirit is amazing and I am certain you will recover from this horrific tragedy. If there is anything I can do please let me know. Bloggers are a caring and compassionate lot and I am thankful you are sharing your journey with us. Happy you have family and friends who support you with love and more. I am always reminded of a saying my mother taught me when I was young, "Fire can be a wonderful servant but a terrible master." Thankfully you, your husband and kitty are safe. Prayers and Healing Energy for your return to a new home and activities you enjoy.

  32. My I am so sorry. My mother n laws house burned down the same way the end of August.Her's started in the garage also and went right up into the attic also. She lost pretty much everything except what the fire fighter got out. She lost thirteen quilts which was so sad. She is now in the process of rebuilding and hope to have her back in by Christmas. She is lucky that she had such a big family to help her rebuild. Good luck and hope you get back into a new place soon.

  47. I am so sorry you have had to go through this. Praise God that you, your husband and furbaby all got out safely. Prayers for a quick rebuild just the way you want it! I also live in the country with a volunteer fire department and the thought of a fire terrifies me. If there is anything that your internet friends can do to help you, please let us know...it would make us feel better if we can bless you in some small way!

  48. Linda, this is a terrible thing to happen to you. It is a tragedy. No matter what you say. Yes, you have loving family around to catch your fall and yes it is "only" material goods that have been lost. It still is a tragedy. So have a good cry (as often as you need to) and scream a little bit (also as often as you need to). Then breath deeply and start over. A lot of work is coming your way, to rebuild your life. I would say I am lighting a candle for you.....but that would be a bit nasty.... I am sending you good thoughts in stead. Good luck

    ReplyDelete
  49. Linda I am heartsick about this. My sister & family lost two homes to fires and though there are worse things to have to go through in life it is a big hurt to lose the things that have memories attached to them. I am praying for you as you go through this hard time.

    ReplyDelete
  50. So pleased to hear the two of you and little Sugarplum are safe and well. As you say the material things can be replaced and the love and memories from the house will ever remain in your heart. Take care and God is always with you.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Like the literal phoenix, you will rise from the ashes of your house brighter, stronger and more beautiful (I am not sure that is even possible ;) I will keep you in my prayers. If you need anything please do not be afraid to ask. When you are ready to accept donations to rebuild your stash let us know. Hugs from NC.

  52. So sorry to read about the fire but very pleased that you are safe and sound. You have a wonderful attitude which will help you get through this setback. All the best in the coming months. hugs......

  53. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your home. I always wonder what I'd grab first if my house was on fire.....
    I was going to de-stash and sell at my friend's garage sale some fabric I don't want/need. It's not the prettiest fabric or falls into the category "what was I thinking"....If you would like my fabric, I will save it for you and mail it when you're ready to move forward. Let me know. Karen

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh my Linda! I'm sorry your house and car are gone, but so glad that you and your family are okay. Do you need anything in the "sewing/quilting" department? I could send you some fabric, extra duplicate tools I have, etc. Send me your address and what you could use and I'd be happy to mail you a few things.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Such a tragedy, but a blessing that you and your husband (and kitty) are safe. I have thought of this scenerio many times as to what I would grab. You never know until you are there. God bless your family and friends....and you will rise from this, your attitude is great.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hugs my friend! May your loss be restored 100 fold! Just as the refiner's fire burns away the dross, may the memories and treasures that remain of the time spent in your home be of purest gold, blanketed in love, surrounded by peace and overflowing with joy. May the heartaches be forever washed away and as you have been ushered into a new season may you be as a child with wide eyed expectancy for the blessings that are before you this day are far greater than any you have ever known before. God Bless You!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Prayers for your continued strength! Our garage caught fire a few months back and that was a pain to sift through. I cannot imagine my whole house! (And if you recall my husband is a fireman) I hope all goes smoothly for your transition. If you need anything please...ask!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh Linda, I am so sorry for your loss. The main thing is that you and your hubby are okay. You are such a sweet person. I feel just terrible about this happening to you. Please continue to look at the bright side no matter how hard it is. God has a plan for you. Let me know if I can do anything for you.

  59. Saw a post on facebook from Michelle Carlson about the fire. I am so sorry. Praise God you and Doug are ok. It will certainly take time and patience but I know you will regroup and go on. I am so sorry your projects were lost. I will certainly be praying for you both. Miss you, good friend.

  67. So sorry to read about losing your home. With your positive outlook, I am sure you and your husband will be able to get through this tragedy. Still very sad to lose all your "stuff".

  68. Linda, I am soooo sorry to hear about this. My Mother lost her house (which had been my Grandparents home) to fire 6 days after we burried my sister so I know what you are going through. It is not easy but take it one day at a time and know that God was watching over you, your husband and kittie. I will be keep you all in my prayers.

  69. Linda:
    I am so sorry to read about your tragic loss. Your attitude is remarkable. I am so thankful you were all able to get out without any physical injuries. I have so many duplicates in the supply area and lots of fabric (quilt shop quality) looking for a new home. Please email me your address and when I get back from vacation at the end of the month I will ship it to you.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Linda. There are no words. None. You have the right perspective and the God-view. But the shock will wear off and you will grieve for lost tangible memories (photos, etc). Let me know of any way I can help restore quilt things. Rulers, fabric, whatever. I'm glad you have loving supportive people around you. Those are the arms of God. They will heal and comfort you. Love and blessings to you.

  71. Linda, I am so sorry. But you've got the Yoga Mindset down: cultivate unattachment. Wow. You are my hero.

  72. Sorry to hear about the fire. I know from experience how stressful it can be to lose everything in a fire but you, your husband and your fur baby are safe. That's what really matters. The rebuilding will be stressful at times and you will miss certain material things that had memories attached to them but with your positive outlook you already have a head start.

  77. My, my goodness - so glad you were safe. My mother and her parents lost their home to fire before I was born, and the biggest loss was the lack of photographs for me to know part of the family history. It's just amazing how much damage can be done so quickly. Take care.

  85. I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your house and goods, but your attitude is really encouraging and a blessing. It reminded me of the words of the Lord Jesus, "...a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." Luke 12:15. It's wonderful that you all escaped without loss of life or health!

  87. My BFF's house burned 3 weeks before my wedding. She said that the wedding was the only thing that kept her going. Yes, it is a very long, tough road to come back from. It can also cause lots of stress in your relationship, even though it wasn't either of your fault. God will be with you thru all of this, if you will let him. Please keep us informed of the progress in rebuilding and getting back on your feet.

  88. I am so sorry you have lost your home. Thank the Lord that you nor any of your family were hurt. That is the blessing in all of this.
