You see, I'd rather have damaged pictures than throw my memories in the trash. Yes, I have digital backups...but its just my weird thing...don't judge me :). And yes, all of my precious things were in plastic bins with tight fitting lids...but Sandy still got to them.
Another surprise that I received was a large waterproof bin containing my small doll collection...full of water. Apparently it has been filled with water before when our basement flooded...so needless to say they are ruined. I'm still not giving up on them though...I'm working on cleaning them up...and again if they look crappy at least i have my memories.
My life has just been crappy lately...lots of things have been happening. After each blow, I ask God...why is this happening? I know that God is good. I know that He is here. I know that he is in control. I know all of his promises and I truly believe Him. I don't really get any answers other than to trust. I keep getting this image of later. I know that God is preparing my little family for something big. And I feel like God may be stripping us of everything that we think we need to hold onto. I think He also forced me to look at my life (in pictures) to remind me of all that we have. I've had such a good life and I continue to be so blessed.
Look at me...the pessimist is finding a glass half full.............
