Today I was amazed that I was able to answer a few emails, then it hit me, maybe I can post some pictures for all of you to see and so I left answering emails to post but....3 hours later...nothing.....
I wish that I could meet each of you personally, your prayers, thoughts, williness to help have totally warmed my heart and I don't think words will ever express my gratitude to all of you. I want to answer each of you and I will, it may take me a while but I will.
Not to beat a dead horse but please don't send priority, there is no such thing here, will just be a waste of your money. Those flat rate envelopes and boxes work perfect.
So.....we go to clean today. Talking to one lady from the village. She is afraid, she wants to leave the island. She did not see the water coming but she saw the rocks, wood and debris being held up in the air and she knew what it was, she grabbed her little girl and ran. She was lucky she saw it quick enough. Her house is one mud pit. She is not the only one that wants to leave. If you even mention earthquakee, people run.
Alot of people are just waiting for Fema to come and appraise their damage. Some are not waiting, the stench is so bad and it is so unhealthy that they refuse to wait. I was there, it does stink, it is gross. Dead fish, slime, your head starts hurting. Can't get enough water.
It amazes me, the kids and youth can make fun out of anything. So they are working and goofing at the same time......my goofing is just taking a break, I have realized someting today, I am not able to run with the big dogs anymore. I had to come home and take a nap before I could continue on. I am laughing at myself...but hey, it is what it is.
It is amazing how fast the clean up is going. I am thinking in a month most things will beb back to normal. Fema will set up tents for people who don't have homes and they can rebuild. As soon as I can post pictures, I will...infact I will just post and leave it on tonight before I go to bed and hope that it will work?
Thanks again to all of you. Pat, you are awesome for taking on the challenge of answering my comments. My sister has even offered to mail my address but remember send it to my husband....not me.
