I am grateful.
With all that is brewing on the east coast right now with serious weather conditions, I am just so grateful I live the armpit part of the country where we really don't have do deal with much. (Other than the occasional haboob)
I can't even imagine being scared to go outside or to stay inside your home knowing the roof can be blown off in a matter of seconds.
Cleveland got hit HARD last night. Several of my FB friends posted pictures and status' that made me really worried about my husband flying home in 2 days. I really would prefer him to stay and wait till the mayhem is over.
Here's a picture of Lake Erie that a friend took while she was driving. Totally Freaky!
I haven't been blogging much simply due to being a new home owner has kept us quite busy.
Financially, we've taken a nice beating to our wallets. Minor little things all of a sudden add up to big expenses and I have definitely felt like our new home was drowning me!
As most have said to me,
WELCOME TO BEING A HOMEOWNER.
Anyway, prayers and thoughts to all who are on the East Coast. I know if anything happened to our home I'd probably crawl under a rock and cry my eyes out since we have invested so much already. I can't even fathom having to pay for any more damages or repairs!
I am grateful that 2 positive school related things have happened for me.
If you follow me on instagram, then you've already seen these.
On Saturday night while at work, I served a family of 4 that wrote me the kindest message on their credit card receipt
God bless good people like this. And they were a young couple probably a few years older than my husband and I!
Then yesterday upon arriving to work I had this put in my school mailbox:
It was a form saying that one of our teachers had donated $$ (tax credit stuff) to my art program. I was so touched. A little like this, goes a long way in the art room!
Today I am just so grateful for good people in my life or good people I have encountered. The sad part is, there are so few left in the world that are willing to help others no matter what.
That scares me.
Happy Tuesday friends.
