Imagine my excitement when our realtor
called Thursday morning to let us know
that the sale of our home was done!!!!
We would be closing in 10 days!!!
We have been waiting over a year
for this to happen!
(short sale MY BUTT!)
The only way i can explain my delight
is to say..
" a $375,000 burden had been lifted!"
IMAGINE MY SURPRISE WHEN
THE REALTOR CALLED BACK
3 HOURS LATER...
to announce that ....
someone had stopped by and called to let him know that..
water was leaking in the kitchen.
"ok. i can handle this. i'll just grab
yup. that will be good."
Hubby had just left for a 4 month
stint to work in California.
I don't handle "tragic" very
well on my own....
i had to pick my kids up from school
I am not a typically "patient" soul.
I was freaking out inside.
"i gotta get there...i gotta get there!!!"
i couldnt get there fast enough.
I am a panicky lil thing.
i reallized at that point that i needed
to say a prayer and ask for some
calm feelings and perhaps some comfort too.
I felt lifted up as i finsihed the prayer.
little did i know that i was really gonna
need that COMFORT and CALM!
an estimated 6-8 days of a waterfall
exploding from a burst pipe in the kitchen ceiling....
2 entire floors of our home destroyed.
flooring, cabinets, walls, ceilings, 2 kitchens
the house has to be gutted ...stripped to it's bones...
i am sooo glad there was not a
camera on me when we entered
the house to find the waterfall...
IT PROBABLY WASN'T PERTY!
i lost it.
thank my Lord above for family
and friends and the power of prayer.
By the grace of God i may get through this
