starting over after harvey

This is my story, as everyone heard we got Harvey tropical storm here in houston due to the flooding we lost most of our stuff:
clothes,matresses,bedroom sets,living room,dining room,tv,etc
Loosing your pictures and personal stuff that money can't buy breaks your heart, having your kid crying for her drawings,pictures and clothes is the sadest thing, I try to hold myself together but is really hard
We are really blessed cause we only lost one vehicle and my family is ok!!The only family I have in Houston are my 3 kids and is really hard to ask for help to one of your kids ,parents are supposed to take care of their kids not the other way around!!!
I work as a part time key holder at Nine West at TANGER outlets and is a blessing specially my store manager she's been my rock!!!
I want to keep going and be myself again this event is been really traumatizing help me rebuild my family life!!!
We are staying with my son but we are already looking for a place.
Starting over is really dificult and looking at your memories in the trash is devastating any donation we get would be to replace our furniture and getting a new place to live.
We are really grateful and any little help is a big step for us to starting over.
Thank you for helping us and God bless you!!!
