Firefighters are just the best!

I have been gone over the last week to Florida. I purposefully did not bring a laptop or tablet to do work on. I wanted to devote my attention to just being in the moment. However, I had so many wonderful moments that now I want to share with you all. Before I move on to Florida stuff (which will be in another post) I wanted to share something very special that happened in the last 24 hours or so.

I flew home on Friday evening. I happened to be sitting next to a retired firefighter/EMT from Norfolk, Nebraska. He and his wife moved down to Clearwater a few years ago after a particularly cold winter snap. My phone screensaver has been Joe’s bunker gear when he graduated from the Olathe Firefighter Academy back in 2021. He asked me about it and I told him about Joe. I told him how incredibly awesome OFD was when he died. They literally carried us through that difficult time along with his army national guard unit. The man sitting next to me told me that Joe was also an awesome person because he, too, was a fireman, and a part of that awesome group of people.

I was in the middle of doing laundry and catching up on bookkeeping from work when the UPS truck dropped off a small package on my doorstep. It was from the Olathe Fire Department. I was blown away by the contents. Love those guys and gals so much. They really step up and do something wonderful when I really need it.

  1. God is so good and works through others so beautifully. The fact that these guys and gals remember your family and hold you in their hearts and loved Joe like they did just warms my spirit. Have a beautiful day my friend
