Monthly Archives: July 2012


Only 2 more days until we are reunited with our home goods! I am most looking forward to having a bed cause the couch is getting old.

Even though we’ve been without our “stuff” I can’t help but feel so grateful that we even have “stuff.” So many in the world are not as fortunate and this experience has made me more thankful for the many ways we are blessed. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t frustrated but when you put everything in perspective, this just isn’t that big of a deal.

In 60 years I won’t be telling my great grandchildren about how awful it was to be without our things for a few weeks.

I will be telling them how happy their great-grandfather and I were to be together in our first home. How blessed we were to have great neighbors. How wonderful it was to be so close to family and friends.

Those are the things that matter.

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy 4th of July! I know I’m celebrating at home, with my hero.

*Thank you to all of the brave men and women who have sacrificed for our freedom.*
