Rising From The Ashes
It was a normal day. Wake up, shower, get the kids off to school, go to work. Nothing out of the ordinary, nothing special about this day. Little did we know when we woke up that morning however, that later that afternoon, our lives would be changed forever.
On a cold afternoon in January, while our two daughters (ages 10 and 14) were home alone after school (I was on my way to my son’s high school basketball game, and my husband Paul was at work), a fire broke out in our home. This fire was angry. It rolled through the house at an alarming speed, destroying everything in its path. From the first spark, to the entire home being fully engulfed in flames, was 4 minutes.
