All I Heard "Our House Is On Fire"

GM FB. If you know me, you know that I NEVER post my person trials online, however, this is an exception. Danielle called me at work 5:50AM 1-10-18 (which she never does) hysterically crying, "OUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE"!!! I abruptly left work and took the longest 25 minute drive in life. All I wanted to do is get to my family. The photos shown is what I arrived at. Sprained my ankle running toward the house. She and our cousin Tiffany were able to grab our children out of bed and get out. Fortunately, everyone is safe. The house on the otherhand.... I'm posting because I couldn't speak to so many of you that were calling for obvious reasons. I had to keep my calls limited. Dealing with the Red Cross, prop mgmt, police, fire chief, investigators, adjustors, victim mgmt, etc. As I am typing this, I am also looking at my family in a deep sleep. I can't help but to get emotional. This could have gone so different. Thank you for all of your support and prayers. You'll never know how strong you are, until strength is the only thing you have.
