I cannot speak for everyone when I say what I am about to say, but I would like you to know that all of you beautiful ladies are in my thoughts and prayers.
The terrible events that happened last week (yikes!) are going to live on in our lives for a very long time. Some of us knew people who were directly affected, while others of us experienced physical trauma from being inside of the house, and feeling the tremor of the explosion. Others of us were even close by and saw some of the horrific images first-hand.
Please rest assured that however you were effected, many people from around the nation are joining together to monetarily help, pray for, and physically assist in any way possible.
Rosanne, our director, has made it clear to us that we can receive help by contacting this phone number: 617-534-5050– the Mayor’s office is helping in providing counselors for free to alleviate some of the stress of this trauma.
As far as things in the house are going, we know its hard to feel like getting back to normal, but it is what we are trying to do now. Restrooms will be checked, (eep!) room checks will be performed, dinner and breakfast will be served (yay!) and a new normal will become part of our lives. Don’t hate on the tourists, they mean well.
I love all of you girls and know that together we can form this awesome community of support and love. Tell each other how you feel, kiss your loved ones like you mean it!, take chances, life is short. You never know what may happen. Don’t listen to those conspiracy theorists or evil hate letters about this or that, but instead think upon things that are lovely and noble and think about that Mr. Rogers quote that is plastered all over the place! you know!! the one about looking for the helpers amidst the enemies and hatred.
Please please! let me know if there is any way I could help. I am excited for the opportunity to make you feel a little bit better, and to talk it out with you, cause God knows I need to express my feelings too. Thanks for your time!
