Subject: Tribulation/ Blessings Maeve & Truelove
From: maeve
Date: 23 Dec 09 - 08:20 AM

Dear Mudcat friends,

Now that our families have all been told, my husband and I want you to know that we are safe and surrounded by caring friends. We will not be discussing details in this or any other thread. You are asked to use this thread for expressing your concerns and to join us in celebrating the blessings that are helping us deal with our recent challenge. Please use PMs if you need to ask for more information. This is important.

On Friday night we were awakened by a fire in our beloved old Maine house. It was clear we had to get ourselves to safety, and that is what we did. The house and its contents burned to the ground. We lost everything in the house, but no one was injured though many firefighters from many towns came to help contain a dangerous situation. We give thanks that none of the many brave men and women who protected our property and neighbors was injured in any way.

All of our immediate needs for the short term are taken care of. Your prayers, Private Messages, and friendship will go far to support us as we set our sights on taking care of business, maintaining privacy, and caring for one another. We know that many of you wish to offer help. We suggest that folks consider donating time, goods, or financial support to your local homeless shelter, food bank, fire/ambulance service, Red Cross chapter, etc.

When Truelove and I know what we need we will make that known. In the meantime, there many who are in need of the kind of caring support we have- which has maintained our independence and self-respect. We have been given the multi-faceted blessing of life, and we are being treated as friends being helped by neighbors- we are not victims.

With love and jubilation, Merry Christmas to all.

maeve and her Truelove

Having had a smaller fire (2000) and having managed a Red Cross chapter-- I know how a little about you're probably feeling and what faces you in the days ahead. You have my prayers.

In our fire, doing the insurance claim job and navigating thru other legal biz fell to me. If I can help with yours in any way, or anything else-- just let me know.

Go Maeve and Truelove!

And here the rest of us are, carting clutter out of the house piecemeal.

Fire is frightening and drastic, and it will test your memory in many ways. But it also provides a clear view of everything else that is around, safe, and of greater value than mere objects.

Take care of yourselves, and please PM if there is anything I can do to help!

Glad you are safe. I am still in recovery from the fire that took my house and 200 others in the neighborhood.

It gives you a chance to reflect and confirms that what is important
is your life and health. The "stuff" is not at the top of the list!

Love to you and yours and hope that you can make it thru the holidays.
wishing you outpourings of help and generosity. Winter is the worst
time to have this happen, but here's hoping the holidays will bring joy never-the-less, and that people around you are in a giving mode.

hugs. and keep the spirit....we here are using the slogan:
we are not victims, we are survivors...
always good to think positive whenever possible.

(not) victim (but) ---->>>>> victor!!

you CAN get through this and rise like a phoenix from the ashes!!

folks,

I was so sorry to read this news when I dropped by tonight. We've had 2 farm fires in my area, in the past few days, & also the loss of an historic inn. After meeting you & seeing your place, I know the work you've put in. Please know that I can give some practical assistance, as needed. Weather permitting, Duane & I will be in Brunswick for a few days after Christmas. I can pick up PMs or emails.

love to you both,

Maeve,

We weren't victims, either, when we had our "small" housefire. But we also had ours shortly before Christmas. So it was with special thanksgivings that we counted "our" blessings (and yours) this year. We know you and Truelove will do a great job of reaching out for everything you need, and we trust with you that it will be provided in due time-- abundantly.

love,

Night Owl said, when and if you excavate, cast iron does not burn. Also, when she got down to the very last of the rubble, she found her dulcimer and a few LPs which survived. She had to clean them up, but they made it. It didn't seem as if anything would have so those few things really counted for a lot for her.

She also said she was glad to hear you have each other and that you are supportive of each other. She thinks that would really help, as she went through it alone.
