My daughter, grandson, her partner, his parents have lost their house to the bushfires in the Blue Mountains today.
My other daughters best friend, her brother and their father have also lost their home. Not even a brick left they said.
I feel shell shocked. Sick to my stomach for all these people.
Over a hundred homes lost they are saying but we won’t know till morning. It could be more than that.
How does this feel? To lose absolutely everything?
To literally only have the clothes on ones back?
No place to GO to.
Your scent…your “feel”. Your special space.
I cannot imagine.
Of course, we all say…but it’s just stuff….just bricks and mortar. It’s lives that cannot be replaced.
Yes, I know, absolutely!
But…I can’t imagine what it must really FEEL like to have fire destroy absolutely everything that was “yours”.
My heart goes out to everybody who is now facing this terrible scenario.
