Just when you think......

Nothing can get worse it happens............... Sorry I haven't been around lately waiting on the contractor to get started on the house and I'm so tired of waiting. Tomorrow it will be 90 days since the tornado and the Roofers took over my driveway. Moe and Jake watched as the supplies were brought in and then the rain came after the roof shingles were off
so this is what I got at 5:15 last night. Enough to make a grown woman cry and I was really was really close to just losing it then I remembered that I had a house to live in and a roof over my head where as many families are without homes. So I took a few pictures and moved on with life, it's way to short to worry about the small stuff. Today the contractor's came in and they plan to Kiltz the ceiling and paint it this evening and then their job will be done.
After they leave we have the power washing of the house and then the painting of the house and patio decks. Then Friday they are repairing my ceiling in my bedroom where the tornado damage messed it up. Other than that all when the Four Season Room is finished another chapter of my life will be over and then maybe I can move on.
Hopefully with the repairs done and the start of a new month I'll head down to my Studio and clean it up some. Maybe touching all my supplies and trinkets I'll get my creative groove moving again. Remember to 'Pay it Forward'. Hugs to you all, Jeanine

Jeanine,
We had roofers fall through the ceiling. They tried to get away with just painting that part of the ceiling. Make sure they paint the entire ceiling so that it all matches. I am so sorry you are going through all of this, but after almost losing my son in a diving accident a week ago I can honestly say I have learned to take it all in stride. It is amazing when you have a near tradegy how important your realize it is to enjoy the small things in life. Hang in there:)I have been and will continue to keep you in my prayers.

Hi Jeanine:
I am so sorry that we haven't been in touch but I did read about the things that were happening with the Tornado. I belive I left a message for you. I am so sorry to hear all that you have been through and even more sorry about your Mom's passing. I have missed you since being on Deedee's Digis and pray that things really do get better for you.. So sorry to see your water problems, but so love your frame of mind of being thankful. I will most certainly keep you in my prayers and I am so happy that you are okay and not hurt. Keep your head up sweetie, and remember that Joy Comes In The Morning. Big Hugs.

Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry that the stress continues to get layered on. You must be exhausted with all that you have been through the last few months, and yet I can see the hope and perseverance shining in you, and that is such an inspiration. Stay strong, my friend -- I truly believe that God has wonderful things in store for you. You are in my prayers every day. Lots of love!

TN GRANNY, I was wondering if you made a post about a lady named Nellie Boak on a web site from California a few years ago. The post was signed TN GRANNY & I came across your blog today. I don't have a blog page. If you are the same person inquiring about Nellie Boak, would you mind sending me a email at ndmcconnell@msn.com. If not I enjoyed your blog page very much. Thank you.
