I need to write for the word vilify tonight… and I don’t have it in me. It is such a nasty word about raking someone over the coals. Lies and truths destroying someone’s life. I can’t do it. I have had people in my past hurt me in different ways, and to this day I still defend most of them. It is just my nature to care forever. So, we are skipping vilify tonight.
I do however have a question for you all. A dear friend of mine just lost many personal irreplaceable objects in a fire. You can replace the furniture and walls, but the pictures, memorabilia, keepsakes can’t be redone. I feel at a loss. I want to help my friend through this painful time, but I am clueless as to what I can do, if there is anything I can do. Have any of you ever been through a fire or helped a friend or family member out after one? Do you have any words of wisdom of something I could do? Thankfully no one was home at the time, so no one was hurt, but the house is a total loss.
