I remember making 4 phone calls and having lots of heart palpatations. My first call was to a neighbor and close friend. My words were something like "I need you to go to my house. Someone needs to be with Drew. Our house is on fire." My next call was to my aunt. Crying, "Can you go to my house?" Aunt - "Can I go to your house???" Me - "I don't have a house! My house is on fire! Drew is there alone!"
Before I know it, we are coming up to the Payne County line. Flower Boy had called a head and got clearance from the Payne County Sheriff that we were coming through and not stopping. They had better clear us a path.
We arrive at our drive. I see cars, people and fire trucks everywhere! I'm not sure the car stopped before I was out and searching for my boy. Drewman met me with open arms, explaining just as his older brother had done, "Mom, I'm OK! The house is just stuff. The important thing is, I'm here and not hurt." I felt like the worst mother in the world to have left him home while I went on a date. I was consumed with a feeling of shame and selfishness. Drewman would have normally gone with us, but that day was the opening day of dove season. He had plans to hunt with his buddies. His gun was laying on his bed, ready to leave at 5pm.
Follow us as we rebuild our lives, our home and our world. Things just get better from here! CONSTRUCTION STARTS TODAY!
