Rhonda's Rebuilding from a Fire

On Thursday, December 14, 2017 my sister's home was devastaed by a fire. Thankfully she, her daughters, and grandchildren were able to get out of the home and everyone is together and safe. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the house and all of their belongings. They left with what they had on their backs.

My sister the strongest woman I know and is going to do everything in her power to help her family.  I hope to lessen her burden as she has to find a new home, clothes, furniture, cooking supplies, and everything they need to start over. 

My sister is the first person to help anyone in need. Even if she has to give her last dollar; she would make sure you have a place to stay, a meal, a laugh, a hug, or just a sweet ear to listen to your troubles. She's incredibly smart and works her tail off.  She would never ask for help and she will most certainly punch me in the face  once she finds out I created this, but I'm willing to take the risk.

Everyone has things going on in their lives that requires their attention and resources. There's never a good time to lose everything you own, but it seems particularly painful this close to Christmas. If you are able to help her and her family rebuild their lives, you're going to see them come back stronger and better than before -- like a phoenix.

If you can't give financially, please keep Rhonda, Shiasia, Teka and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
