As I mentioned in my last post, I was to stay the week in Sebring with my family. But due to unforeseen circumstances I ended up coming back home with my hubby. When I was leaving, my aunt said to me, "God has a reason for everything. You are suppose to go home." And those words could not have been more true. On Thursday we had terrible storms here in Tallahassee. And my in-laws house was struck by lightening. Long story short is that their kitchen caught fire. It is by God's grace that no one was home at the time, not even my sister-in-law who is a stay at home mom with two young boys. Both of their neighbor were home at the time (thank the Lord again) and 911 was called immediately. Fortunately the kitchen was the the only major damage. I was able to watch my two nephews while the rest of the family was at the house taking care of things. My aunt was right... I was suppose to be here.
The Red Cross has been so amazing through out this process from putting them up in a hotel to providing them money for food, they have handled every detail making it so much easier on my in-laws. If you have means, please take a moment and make a donation to the Red Cross.
And finally, this past weekend I was very honored to attended not one, but two graduations (very long day... hehe). My baby sister and my cousin (who is like a brother) both graduated from high-school this past weekend (am I really that old!). It was so special to watch them end such a significant part of their lives and begin the rest of them. I am so proud of them both.
