Remember this prompt, when your house was on fire and you got to save five items?That means you left a lot of stuff behind. What are the things you wish you could have taken,but had to leave behind?
My goal was to save my life, picking five important items did not cross my mind, it was a serious situation, I had to run for the door before the fire reached that part of the house.
Now that I am in the shelter I’m grateful to God I managed to escape. I look at it this way, the things I left behind was the price I paid to save my life I will not feel sorry for them. Maybe some day I’ll be able to buy some of the things, only the ones that are important.
I feel much better I chose to save myself!
My house was burnt yesterday. There were things I left behind. I wish I could take them with me. I know why I couldn’t . It was so sudden. I also had to get out fast. I couldn’t look for my clothes I just bought. I didn’t get a chance to wear them. My gorgeous shoes. My favorite dishes.
I can only sit and cry because I was unable to take them. The thought that I was safe with my family and my pets, brought me back to reality.
I can always start buying these things slowly. I should be grateful I am alive.
I have learned one lesson from this tragedy. I must not attach me with material things. After all when I pass on I won’t be taking anything with me but my deeds especially good ones.
