Kindness of Strangers
About 4 pm today, my next door neighbor (Virgina) knocked on the door and said some other people from the neighborhood wanted to help us remove the tree that fell on our travel trailer. I was so surprised that I was kind of speechless because I was worried about how we were going to take that tree down because it is so big. I was afraid it would be too hard for my husband and I to cut it down ourselves. We didn't have the extra money to pay anyone to remove it. We spent a lot of money buying gas to run the generator. We had to drive about 25 miles from our house to get gas since the town we live in did not have any electricity. We ran the AC at night so we could get a good nights sleep. I had to cook on a Coleman camp stove and I was thankful we had that. We lost all our food in the frig and in the freezer. We were without power since the 13th. I was really suprised when they offer to help us. Anyways it only took about 30 minutes and the tree was off our travel trailer! We will have to pick up all the tree sections and tree limbs tomorrow. They were so nice and we thanked them and they were on their way. They will be in my prayers tonight! I know God will bless them for helping us!
