It has been over a week since the Fort McMurray fires. My heart is truly saddened by the amount of destruction and pain it has caused so many people, hard working people who have given their sweat and blood just trying to provide a better life for their family. And as a result have given so much to not only this wonderful province but also to this country as a whole. This is the city that open its arms to a struggling province, the Newfoundlanders after their cod industry was dried up. A city and a people who provides work for everyone who was willing to work. My heart goes out to you today.
However in all this destruction it fills my heart with joy, and my eyes with tears to see how much support and love there is in return. How many people want to help by sending supplies and money to this city and the people that it housed. I heard a man who wanted to donate his camper trailer to a family so they had some where to live. Home builders donating empty homes to the homeless. Celebrities and large corporations donating and giving and recognizing what happened to our Northern Community. The list goes on. It truly is humbling to say the least.
I'm not sure where exactly I'm going with this post... But my heart is telling me to address it. I guess what I'm trying to say is that our heart here at Stems Flowers & Cafe goes out to you, and we send our support in anyway we can. Sending hugs and best wishes to you. xox
