Not the day i expected

At 8:30 in the Morning, i was here, taking a second to snap a picture of the beautiful River. went to work, was busy, stayed two hours longer than i was supposed to...... come home after 6 pm, and i was ready to chill, get a phone call, one of my dear friends was crying........ her mom and dads home burnt to the ground.... they are also my neighbor...... ( country neighbor, not city neighbors) My friend lives in Eastern Pennsylvania, and she was on her way home, but she wanted me to take coffee, cause her dad was cold, and he needed coffee...... Bill, Katie, and I loaded up with hot coffee, pizza, and blankets and coats........ and drove over to the house.... it was burnt to the ground....... there was nothing left standing..... her parents are in their 70's, and now they are homeless........ came back home, and i got a nice hot bath and crawled into bed, put in a movie, "Under the Tuscan Sun".... and my phone rings....... there is an issue with my friend and one of her family members, and they had no place to stay....... come here no problem........ i get up get the guest room ready...... they get here about 11:30 pm, her sister, and her family ended up not being able to stay with family either, so i quickly put up the air mattress, gathered blankets, pillows, towels and toiletries......... and they came here too :0). I do not mind, but it has been a long night and day, and i am tired, I changed my work schedule from today, and will add the hours tomorrow. i've cat napped, but i am tired, and about ready to hit the bed for the night..... i have one family staying tonight...... but they will be on their own, as i am spent.......
actually i am not even sure i know what i am saying....... so i think i'll say good night....
Thank you God for keeping this elderly couple safe......... and help the to find peace that material goods may have been destroyed, but fire can not touch memories, and life has been spared. Amen.
