as I watched and browsed all the news stations last evening, well, words cannot describe how overwhelming the rescuses, those completely lost and in states of shock...those who have lost loved ones, and the rising numbers of those who did not make it. I so want to do something other then simply send money...and wondering where all those people are going to go...then I thought, if they're anything like Karen, they will somehow, someway survive. It's going to be long and hard, but in the end, will lives.
Thank you all for this thread as....
then to come in here this morning and read all your responses, well, you all display so much hope and kindness, and gave me an entire new outlook on the greatness of mankind...I'm presently wallowing in tears of joy...thank you very much!!! and not the least bit ashamed...
Karen, I'm so thankful your all going to be ok...and yes, it will be a long haul, but thanks be to God, you got out...God Bless you, and if you need anything, or if there is anything I can do, please ask!!!
I live in PA but my home is yours and your family's if ever need be..perhaps a little tight, but hey, sardines worked it out, right?
Knowing you are all in Texas presently, that offer may seem lame, just want to help if at all possible. Clothes, canned goods, towels, sheets, money, darling, you name it, give us an address and they will be in the mail heading your way.
And I had another thought,which might be a temporary fix...what about a camp ground? They are a lot less expensive, you can buy some very large tents, air mattresses, lights, sleeping bags....and cooking outside isn't all that difficult, once you get the hang of it. Just a thought? I did it one complete summer and it was really a great experience, not to mention, it is a way to get a by on a shoestring for the time being?
Karen, whereever and whatever you decide to do, upon getting settled, post your address and let us know what your needs are, and I'm certain, everyone will do their best to get supplies, clothes, etc. to you.
Love ya, and this site, well, you people are not only awesome but a perfect example of greatness. Many thanks Karen, for keeping us posted.
