Thank you everyone for your sweet comments on my last post. I was having a very bad day and I think a lot of it escaped into my writing. I appreciate you listening. Today I have only good news:
We put money down yesterday to reserve a lot to build a new house! :) Love and I are very excited. At first we weren't sure we were going to be able to take advantage of the great deal they were offering because of a large down payment the builders required. All seemed lost so I turned to the analytical mind in my family, my Dad, to ask for his advice. I was overwhelmed with emotion when my Dad and then my Grandma said they would help us come up with the money. I love my family and am constantly grateful for everything they do for us. They have more than once been an answer to prayers. It seems we will finally be able to have a place of our own...and stop throwing away money on rent...all because they were willing and able to help. I'm feeling very blessed today and just wanted to share that joy with all of you.
