The title is an attempt to lighten my heart . I’ll add a photo of the murderous deer later .
Last night we had a grease fire that could have been tragic, but thanks to my son no one was hurt . He’s truly a hero . Thanks to God for His mercy and protection!
I left a pan of oil heating on the stove to cook some chicken nuggets. Then I saw three deer out the kitchen window and went to take a picture and forgot all about about the pan.
I was outside taking pictures with my good camera and my husband was in bed. My son was in his room by the kitchen when the smoke alarms went off ( please be sure yours work! ). He saw flames shooting to the ceiling . He grabbed the fire extinguisher (get one!) put out the fire and got my daughter out of the smoke. Then he went back in and yelled for my husband to get out of the house. She was in the kitchen near the stove. Then he made sure my husband got out. He was able to go out the front door .
I was walking back from the barn when I saw my son coming out the back door with my daughter’s wheelchair. I instantly knew what happened. I tried to go in for my husband , but the house was pitch black with choking smoke! Thankfully he had woken up and opened the door and saw smoke and went out the front door.
I’m not a crier, but I broke down after I thought of what could have happened to my family . My son let me bawl while I hugged him. I’m so proud of him.
We spent the night at my mom’s house across the pasture. The house smells pretty smoky and like burnt plastic . Everyone seems okay. My son is coughing a little.
There is a huge mess, but I don’t care. Today I will clean it up and continuously praise God that no one was hurt.
I’m still an exhausted and emotional wreck . Waiting for the insurance adjuster to call . Thanks for the prayers that this will be covered and we can get it fixed quickly. Currently there’s no electricity in the kitchen or my bedroom because of the burned wiring.
And thanks to my friends who prayed for me last night when I texted you . Your support means so much!
