When It Rains It Pours

I will be leaving work shortly to go meet with the adjuster, but I just wanted to let everyone know to PLEASE keep the prayers coming for my friend, Kristy. She just called and her house is a total loss. Her family and pets are safe, but everything else is gone.

I seriously don't know how much more I can take. I have done so well keeping it together and trying to be positive, but now I just can't do it anymore. I just want to go to my house, be on my couch snuggling with Spencer, and enjoy my Christmas tree. I used to always talk about how much I wanted to paint the bedroom, tile the backsplash in the kitchen and someother things, but now, I would LOVE to just have my old stuff back and would be happy with it for the rest of my life!!!!!!!!!!!! I also thought that infertility was the worst thing that could ever happen to me, but I was wrong. It has turned into a blessing. If we would have gotten pregnant when we first started trying, I would have had a baby in the room where the current escaped and caught fire. Also, what if I had not lost my baby this summer, I would have not had a home to bring it home to. These were all small blessings that I just couldn't see until now.

Amanda - I was thinking about God's timing today. I know this is all sooooooooooooooooooooooooo horrible. But I was thinking - maybe there is a reason - you wouldn't want to be big and pregnant with no home to live in. Or no home to bring a baby home to. You WILL have a baby and when you do- you will bring that baby home to a new and improved house and I hope at that time - you will look back and be happy and see God's timing in all of it. I think of you constantly and pray for you. I'm soooooooo sorry - it couldn't have happened to a nicer person. I hate it!
