I just need to do this

Those of you who have been reading know that we just moved a few months ago from a house we lived in for 10 years. I did a post about it here where I talked about our times and memories there. My son, Macdougal, did a lovely video montage using only pictures taken in that house at the same time. In the video are a few of the kids friends who also live in that neighborhood. Thanks and praise to God, that their homes were all saved, unlike the other 24 on our street. I want to share with you all the lovely video. Also Nannygoat, Bear, Macdougal, Mr.Vixen, Lloyd and Fishboy went over to the old house yesterday to see for themselves and to hug our friends. I wanted to see, but I did not want to do it in person yet. I know we are very lucky that we had moved and all our stuff was not on there. We did not lose everything like so many hundreds did. But I am moved and saddened. During the fires four years ago, we also evacuated and we did not get anything out but the house stood and sheltered us for another four years (in fact four years ago today those fires started-or yesterday, I am not sure what day it is yet). I pray for all the victims of this tragedy and my heart goes out to them. Please click The Good Times Are Killing Me link below and see what a great time that home gave us. (Thanks to Nannygoat for the picture work and to Macdougal for having made the video)

    *hugs*

  3. All that destruction, wow!! I think the most compelling thing about the pictures of the aftermath is that the house next door appears to be completely unscathed. I’m so relieved to know that you and yours are safe at your new home.

  4. (((((hugs))))
    I’m soo sorry, I can understand how painful it is to see.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers!!!!

  5. What a horrible thing for anyone to have to go through. It’s the terrible What if’s that must be the hardest to deal with in a way. Major HUGS going out to you.

  6. It’s hard for me to even imagine what it must feel like for you to see that. Sending you a Big hug, Vixen.

  7. I just can’t imagine. The closest we have come is getting our house hit by lightening. Looking at those photos I don’t know whether to cry at your trmendous loss or to thank God that all of you are safe and were already moved away. Vixen you have my thoughts and prayers by new”ish” friend. I have so enjoyed getting to know you through your blog lately.
