A gift for Mary


Our friend Mary from Daisy Bouquet posted about her daughter today. Mary is one of the most giving and generous people and she needs our help.


It seems that there was a fire and her three grand children and her daughter lost everything. Mary is happy and feels blessed that they are okay.


Here is a bit of what Mary posted:

They came out in pjs. no socks, shoes or coats. They have lost everything. The oldest child wears glasses and they were lost. Our daughter also wears glasses and I do not know if hers were lost.

The ARC put them in a hotel for 3 days. After that I do not know. We have been up all night and have not sorted out things yet. I have not been able to go as I am recovering from pneumonia and my husband leg issues have him in a boot and on crutches and he can barely walk.


I was wondering if maybe we could all help. It's freezing in Kentucky and I just sent the children boots. Pink for Asia, red and navy for Allen and navy blue for Asa.

They need everything, because they lost it all.

Allen is a seven year old boy.
He wears size 6 in shirts and pants and size 8 size coat and size 10 shoes

Asa is a nine year old boy
He wears size 8 pants and size 10--12 shirts and 10-12 size coat, and size 3 shoes

Asia is an eight year old little girl
She wears 7 - 8 pants, 10-12 tops and size 10-12 coat, she wears size 2 shoes

Mary's daughter Amanda wears size large pants and XL shirts

My creation

Thank you so much. Our prayers are needed too. Let's help the Lord to raise them up on eagles wings and provide for them. I just can't even imagine what this must be like. And those little children lost it all after Christmas. I just read a book about how we can be part of someone else's miracle. Please let's be part of a miracle for these children.

If we each just send one thing, it can make the difference. We all can make a difference.

Oh my...hadn't read Mary's blog yet and will visit directly. Seems as if there are many challenges and you are an angel to help.


Karen,Thank you for sharing this story. I had a fire in my house back in 1995 and I know how hard this is...
I am going to do something...everyone thinks your insurance covers things...but it does NOT cover all that one thinks. If everyone just sent something small it would help as we realize times are tough for alot of us.As small as it will be...everything helps!
