Lost

I don't know what to do but blog. I have seen pictures on twitpic of the water in our street. The basement carpark is full. It is not even king tide and the river is lapping at the ground floor level (my level). By tonight all my things will be under water, covered in a disgusting layer of river sludge. By the peak tomorrow, maybe the second floor, third floor? I have cried buckets... not for my things... but for the shock and fear I feel. I am being stripped bare of my old life. My heart hurts. I feel so lost and helpless.
My boys. I love them. I have everything really, don't I. Nothing but everything.

  3. Oh, Honey! You have so much to bear at the moment. But you are right. Things can be replaced (well, most of the time) but people can't. Especially you and your precious boys. Stay safe, A-M. J x

  19. Just hold fast for now A-M, it won't make sense for a long while yet, too much is going on. Imagine your boys telling their children about it - it will be a family legend~

  20. Oh A-M, I am so sorry that you are going through yet more upheaval. Mother nature sure loves showing who's boss, doesn't she? But you are right - you have everything you need. Take care. I'll be thinking of you.

  22. Hi A-M. I wish so much that we could do something to help you out. We have just been at my husbands office in Kurilpa street in West End where our stock is also situated but i can only feel your anguish right now as all you can do is watch and wait. If there is anything we can do to help right now i would be so pleased to help. We are a community and want you to know that we will be there to help with any clean up, just ask!

  23. Oh dear, you have had such a hard time lately and now this. I know it sounds cliche, but the only thing that really matters is the safety of you, your boys and your fellow townfolk. As awful as it is to lose your posessions and have your home flooded, Grace is with you in that your family is together. I do feel so awful for everyone. May I offer you a hug through the internet, I don't know what else to do or say.

  24. My heart breaks for you AM, you have been through so much...hold on to your boys though as they are and will remain your everything! The whole of Australia is right behind you and all of QLD...take care.

  25. I am crying buckets of tears for you & everyone in Brisbane.
    To think today I was supposed to be having a lovely girly day with my daughter at the art gallery in Brisbane
    & now people I know are losing everything they own. Life seems so vulnerable now.
    You are allowed to feel a little sadness for losing your belongings , just done let it consume you. I cannot imagine how you are feeling. I feel helpless sitting only a hour away & cannot help. I want to get in a boat & go save your chair & the boys lizards.
    Be safe , be safe.

  30. Oh A-M, my heart is aching for you and your boys right now. Reading your earlier blog piece I just quickly got up from my chair and thought "right now how do i save those lizards?" then realised my 2 girls are asleep and im here in Melb. I truly wish my location was much closer so i could do it for your boys. A-M I am thinking of you, everyone is, and I pray this settles rather than getting worse. If mother nature can do this, it surely can turn the water back again, surely.......

  31. It's just so bad. I can't believe it. I hope you and the boys stay safe. It is unbelievable.

  34. AM, it's truly amazing what you've faced in the last few months. And you've faced it all with dignity and have set such an amazing example for your boys. In terms of the other stuff, I keep thinking (and hoping) that perhaps the bulk of your belongs are safe and dry in a storage unit somewhere?? Regardless, you've got the best treasures right next to you. And what a story this will make some day....

  35. Everything you really need is right there with you. Stay strong and out of harms way, the rest can be replaced!

  36. I am so sad, so sorry A-M.. Keep talking to us, we are here. I send you my love and prayers.

    "... If you cannot accept what is outside, then accept what is inside. If you cannot accept the external condition, accept the internal condition. This means: Do not resist the pain. Allow it to be there. Surrender to the grief, despair, fear, loneliness, or whatever form the suffering takes. Witness it without labeling it mentally. Embrace it. Then see how the miracle of surrender transmutes deep suffering into deep peace. This is your crucifixion. Let it become your resurrection and ascension.

  37. A-M, I am so sorry. I don't even know what to say. I will pray and pray for you, keep strong and keep reaching out. I have a friend here in the united states who just lost her home to a fire. Her whole home, burned in flames. But all of her children were miraculously spared, thank goodness. Fires and floods and shootings and bad things happen. This world is a mess, isn't it? I pray you'll find the good and the blessings in the storms.

  43. It's called grief A-M and there's nothing wrong with feeling it for things, especially those associated with a former life. They are your things and a part of you.
    Some people will say how fortunate you are to have what you have, but sometimes all this does is make you feel guilty for getting upset. Well, don't feel guilty, you are going through a really tough time. Be kind to yourself.

  50. A-M, I just feel so sad for you that your little sanctuary will go under, it is devastating. You know that you can and will replace all your things. You're clever and talented and strong and you will regroup and I think it will work out...it is just the goddamn waiting that is killing me. I can't believe how under water Milton and Rosalie and Suncorp Stadium are. Just crazy. And Apocalyptic. Keep blogging, stay in touch xxxx

    It's so hard to fathom.. and I feel for you as you are trying to get back on your feet... Go ahead and cry buckets... time to purge.. Wish I could be up there to help somehow... Keep your chin up and give those gorgeous boys of yours a big hug... Much love xxx Julie

  54. When I stood in my sons bedroom doorway on 4 September and my world was crashing around me during our devastating earthquake, I was fearing for my life and that of my childrens. I suddenly realised that I didn't care one hoot about my lovely furniture and beautiful home. I didn't care that my home had sustained tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage which incidently is still to be repaired. The only thing that mattered after the quake was that my family was alive. Everything else can and will be replaced. Life threatening experiences can be epiphanies and open your eyes to what really matters so hang in there...every cloud has a silver lining as they say!

  56. It is gut-wrenching to read the words pouring from your heart right now ... what a feeling of helplessness. Just know, around the world, people are rooting for you - and for everyone impacted by this tragedy.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm praying for God's arms to be around your heart right now...and please know, you must know...how many of us have our arms around you also at this moment...in thought and in spirit.

    A-M, we lost a house we were building to a fire, we weren't living there yet (weeks away), but we spent 2 years building it and 10 thinking, dreaming, and designing it. Nobody was hurt, which I was very thankful for....but we were still in shock and devestated over the loss. Please don't worry about grieving over the loss of the things you loved...they are and were a part of you and deserve tears as well as fond memories.
    Much love and stay strong as best you can...

  59. I have been following your blog privately for some time and knew you were going through a tough time so have stepped back to give you privacy and time to heal. But I couldnt resist checking in on you today and to read about the devastation of the floods hitting your town, your house, is unbearable. I really feel for you and send you all the best vibes for that water to reside and go away!

  61. I'm so sorry. This is devastating. And what must be worse is the waiting. I'm in Melbourne but my family up in Brisbane are dealing with it to. They're in Yeronga and are expecting their 2 storey house to be completely under.

    Is there a bright side? Not really but think of the fresh slate you will have to get decorating.

  65. When I woke up this morning in U.K. the first thing I thought about was the Brisbane floods, then I thought about you and wondered about your apartment and how you and your boys, along with thousands of others in the area are fretting and worrying about their homes and loved ones. What will be will be and you will pick up the pieces...again...and you will find another chair if need be! Robx

  66. Dear A-M,

    Thinking of you and your gorgeous boys. Stay safe and as others have said and you also know, all the "things" can be replaced in time and new mementos gathered as the old ones go. You have your precious boys, and that is all you need. I have no doubt that they will look after their beautiful mother just as much as you look after them.

  76. Dear A-M,
    I am at a loss as to what to say. I am in shock as this has all unfolded. It seems so surreal watching the reports on the news (from down here in SA) - but hearing your personal tale makes it so very real. I just can't believe it. After all you have been through.
    Be strong. Take care. Cuddle those gorgeous boys. And don't be afraid to shed a tear.
    This is too cruel, but you will get through it.
    Sending you love, prayers and every possible positive thing I could possibly send you in this message.

    you don't know me, I even live at "the other end of the planet" (Europe - so sorry for may bad English), but I followed your blog for many month now - I'm so sad to hear what happens right now!
    I had a look to your blog today, hoping that your house would stand uphill, would be save, but reading your post made me cry.
    I hope you and your family are OK - thats the most important!
    I feel so helpless, here on the other side.
    Don't feel lost, please!
    I wish you all the energy to go through this.
    love, Cat.

  85. I have been popping over to read your blog for a little while and whilst I have no idea what is going on in your life I gather that your marriage fell apart completely unexpectedly. My heart went out to you as your life seemed to be going about beautifully before this and it is not what you planned. Now the floods going through the only little temporary home you know it's scarey, heartbreaking and the uncertainty of it all makes you feel more vunerable and insecure. Forgive me if I have got that wrong but I'm only reading between the lines. I'm in Brisbane but safe and dry and I can't believe what is unfolding and how people are feeling. I think like you said your life has basically been stripped to the bear of your old life. I think we all know that you love your boys and that furniture can be replaced it still doesn't take away from you losing your life as you know it. Stay safe and get lots of hugs from your family and friends. Kathy, Enoggera

  87. Hi A-M,

    Sending my thoughts and prayers your way tonight (it is raining here too tonight)....someone mentioned very heavy rain this coming Friday so we will have to wait and see.

    My brother and his family are in Gatton just up from the Lockyer Flats, thank goodness he had the foresight to buy a house high up on a hill.....but for the rest below complete devastation.

    Glad that you are safe and well, you and the boys...that is something to be very thankful for.

  102. I came to your blog via Daydream Living... I hope that above anything else, you and your family are safe. I can't even begin to imagine how you are feeling, but I will say a little prayer for you tonight.

  103. Dear A-M,
    I went through this in 1997 when Grand Forks, ND flooded in the US. The hardest thing to lose is pictures and the mementoes of loved ones lost. For the most part, though it's hard, everything else is replacable. We worked until they called for evacuation and luckily had enough warning to move as much upstairs as possible. It doesn't sound like you were as lucky. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
