"Its a total loss " those words just keep repeating in my head. thats what the firefighter told me as I pulled up to my burning home. I am overjoyed my family is safe (all 5 kids and the dog)..... and joy is the feeling we are focusing on. All the "stuff" can be replaced my family can not. We lost everything we are left with only the clothes on our backs. I do not know what the next step is on our journey to rebuild, but i know we have the love and support of our neighbors, friends, and family and for that we are extremely grateful.
