|My Bedroom the day after....|
I am thankful I have my FAMILY. Possessions are nothing.... I have my FAMILY. I saved my kitty. It was so bad when I got him, I was unable to save my baby Skittles, my Sun Conure Parrot. I am haunted by this. I miss her terribly. I miss her more than anyone can imagine.

I have pictures that are smoke damaged. All I can do is keep them together in bags. Some of our furniture (the wood) that was away from direct smoke, can be cleaned. All of our food had to be thrown away. Anything unsealed was dangerous to eat. Most of our electronics have to be replaced. Sure they work (some), but the soot is deep inside.... it corrodes the insides of electronics and you can SMELL that day every time you turn anything on.
Making a list for your insurance claim is like taking your house, and trying to remember EVERYTHING you had..... after a tornado came through and blew all of it away. It also makes me think MORE.... of the things that were lost. Some things that cannot be replaced.
I thank ALL of my friends and family who have been here for us. We thank you for ALL of the gift cards, prayers and kind words. We would have never been able to get through the past 2 weeks without you. Time heals all wounds. My faith in God is helping me heal too.......
