Home invasion

Posted: January 22, 2012 in New Mixed Media art

Bob and I were home invaded yesterday at 5 a.m. The man was armed with a knife and I surprised him by opening my bedroom door to investigate noises I thought was our cats or dog. I was threatened with the knife but called to Bob for help and when Bob appeared the man ran off, threw our new dining chair at us, yelled something undecipherable and exited by the garage door he had broken into.  No one was hurt and nothing was taken. We are lucky and very grateful. The situation plays over and over in my mind like a broken film loop and the house now feels unsafe. Looking forward to a new normal…

    Oh Honey~
    I am so sorry for that horrid event that you endured. I am thankful that you and Bob and the animals are okay and that Bob was there for you all. It is a feeling that will subside but it makes your mind, like you said, repeat it and what could I have done; or what would I have done. Leave the shoulda, coulda, woulda out of your thoughts and remember that God saw you through it and was there with you. For whatever reason and whenever you learn that reason will come to you and you will know it.
    You know I’ve been through a few robberies and have gotten over it… or did I? Love you and your heart!

    He took the most important thing, Terry. Your home being your safe haven from the world.
    I pray you’re able to regain that sooner rather than later.
    Love you

    So relieved to hear that you are all OK! And glad to hear that you guys are taking steps to restore that sense of security at home so it doesn’t happen again. You’ll have a new safety awareness from now on, but that’s not such a bad thing. Thinking of you…
