Thought I would join in "Throw Back Thursday". Today is the 7th anniversary of our catastrophic office fire. It was an electrical fire completely destroying a dental clinic/business of almost 20 years.
The clinic before the fire
The morning after the fire
Yes, we are smiling, that's not to say we didn't cry! There were many tears and sleepless nights after the fire. Dealing with insurance and the task of putting our lives back together was daunting. We felt blessed that no one was killed or injured and that it wasn't our home. So many helped following the fire and we are forever grateful. The volunteer fire department was amazing. In the wee hours of April 24, 2007 many doors were closed for us, but then other doors were opened. We listened to the small voice giving us guidance and followed HIS prompting. Has it been easy??? No, but it's been a journey that we could have never imagined prior to the fire.
Like they say...what doesn't kill ya, makes ya stronger!!
