Thank you Two Writing Teachers for the opportunity to WRITE!
Sliding the lock open on my phone to open Facebook to see what had happened in my world. Scrolling through the entries, I found one by my cousin Mel about being worried about her children's school bus being late. Scrolling through the comments I discovered, the bus was late because of a fire on the hollow near my parent's home. I become very worried, refreshing often for any sign of what happened. I waited patiently knowing there was nothing I could do to help.
After a while, I began dialing phone numbers, mom's, mom's cell, grandma's phone, Alyson's house, Alyson's cell, my sister Steph's cell, and Steph's house. No one answered! Trying not to let worry over take me, I could only remember the last time I had gotten cryptic information and found out later my dad had been life lighted to a hospital in Pennsylvania. I sit, I wait, hoping the phone will ring or someone will post a Facebook update!
***The fire did not damage any structures or take any lives. Just some brush on a big hill. So grateful for God's mercy!***
