99% of the time, we here at US Home Improvement use this blog to write about vinyl home replacement windows, fiberglass home replacement windows, and wood home replacement windows. That’s not surprising — replacement windows and doors is a large part of what we do.
However, today we’re going to do something a little different. We’re going to take a moment to talk about the hundreds of thousands of people in Southern California who woke up this morning in need of replacement homes. The worst wildfires in recent memory have caused untold devestation on the West Coast. It may be clear across the country from where we are, but our hearts can’t help but go out to the families who have lost so very much.
Home is more than a building. It’s more than the roof overhead and the paint on the walls. Home is not the plumbing fixtures carefully selected or even the replacement windows.
Home is where we’re from. It’s who we are — the space wehre we share coffee with our sweetheart in the morning and where the kids watch Sesame Street in the afternoon. It’s where we laugh and love; fuss and fight, and above all, live: forging an enduring chain of memories from the first kiss to the final, teary farewell.
Losing that — losing home — is more than anyone should have to bear. It is our hope that the chain of memory gives some comfort to those who lost the physical structure where the memories were made. We applaud the courage of those familes who have lost so much, and wish them continuing strenght in the days and weeks to come.
Additionally, our thoughts are with the heroic fire crews who are putting their lives on the line to preserve as many homes as humanly possible.
Home means so much. That’s one of the guiding principles here at US Home Improvement. We know how much home means, and how critically important it is to each and every one of us.
