I've Got The Power !!

Who knew getting the power restored at our house would be such a
monumental event ! We stayed at my parents house again last night, but James took the dog home this morning and sent me a message on my phone that just said "power!". I was so excited ! I really wanted to take the day off from work and spend time cleaning the house, doing laundry, deodorizing everything, and of course who could forget, stare at the big hole in our roof ! That's still another story yet to come I'm sure. I'm so looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight and taking the biggest candle lit bubble bath you've ever seen. Emma said this morning that she can't wait to sleep in her bed too. She had to go back to school this morning and it was such a rush. Since the hurricane, she hasn't been to sleep until 10 or 11 every night. This morning was very hard on her getting up. Not to mention, we both needed showers and had to get ready and we still had to go by the house and get clothes etc, etc......So, after a long 14 days away from home, I'm very thankful to be getting to go home tonight to our smelly house with no food ! We are so blessed with what we have and are so grateful to God. We will continue to pray for those who have yet to receive power and the families who will not have a home to go home to. God bless.

So thankful that your family is well and safe. I read through your posts and you had quite an experience - but it does bring to mind how bless and how thankful we all need to be to enjoy daily what God has given us. I too am a believer and love the Lord and always so nice to know there are others out there.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.
