Hi  :wave:

I was supposed to be answering my friends tag'.  I guess that I will put that aside until another time.

.

A little story:  Many years ago, there was a little family who lived on a farm in the 'sticks'.  A Step-father, a Mom, and 3 youngsters: Big sis, Middle Brother, and baby sis.   They lived in a metal box, near an old wooden box, they didn't have a telephone, but did have water and a little garden and lots of critters.

.

One day the sun came out and made the little farm hot as Hell.  Step Dad and Mom decided to let the kiddies sleep in while they went into town.   Big Sis though woke up, got bored and bothered brother and little sis until they woke up.  After breakfast everyone went outside and played for awhile in the Hot as Hell sunny day.   Soon, Big sis got thirsty and decided to go back into the metal box for a drink.  The door to the metal box was Hot as Hell.  When Big sis opened the door-inside the metal box had turned into Hell!  Big Sis and her siblings ran away and lived.  The End. 

.

That is a stupid, much shortened version of something that happened to a friend of mine many years ago.  I hear about it again, once in awhile.  Anyway, my friends, when they were kids, did indeed escape a trailer house  fire.   They lived in the country, and had no phone.  So I guess they had to run a long ways before reaching help.   I lived not to far from the family-and arrived at their still burning house just in time for my friends parents to come on the scene-they didn't know that the kids had made it out of the fire safely yet.   I will never forget the horrified looks on my friends parents faces-nor forget the joy when someone pulled up in a car-the kids inside!  I swear I cried.   The family lost everything...but really they lost nothing!  I think they were blessed, indeed!

.

Now, I am bothered.  Just yesterday, I received a call from another friend...her parents had a house fire.  They kept running back inside their house to rescue stuff-risking their lives each time they did so.  But was it worth it?  I know that they worked hard to gain their possessions-but to risk ones life to get stuff out of a fire? :shrug:  I just kept seeing my friends mom's face from all of those years before when she thought she lost her family.

.

Anyway, the good news is, I called my friend this morning to see how her parents were doing-hurray-the fire was minor, and they damage is repairable:dance:  Everyone is doing okay, maybe some minor smoke inhalation.  

.

I am just glad to hear that they are all doing okay:)  I don't know why things like this bother me so much.  It does however, remind me to count my many blessings and thank God for all of the good things!  Hug someone you love my friends!
