Lets see here,
in one week, I broke my sprained and broke my foot, Microwave broke again.
Now on Saturday, it rained and rained. The window well flooded my basement. I said how could it get worse.. well, Heavenly Father heard that...
On Tuesday night, we sat down for dinner, talking, laughing. It was loud, Aanya ran down to turn off TV for prayer, she screamed.
Mom- there is a waterfall in my room.
Me and Maka looked at each other, ran down stairs.. I looked at Maka, and I about lost it.. What?
I hobbled up the stairs to look and see where it was coming from. Yep the Toilet pipe broke. Water covered that entire floor, down the vents, and flooded the family room. Carpet, wood, toys, EVERYTHING...
Now I sat that night, curled up in a ball, crying like a baby..
I stood up and brushed my hair away from my face, looked at the ceiling, then looked at the floor.
Get up Dev, you have come so far, do not let this get you down.
I got up. I cried, I cried some more.
I know for a fact my patriarticle blessing has stated that I am a special child of God.
I will not let these trials get me down. I will fight, I will succeed.
Do you want to know what I did?
I went to a ward members house, and helped her with her flood in their home.
Why? Because Charity never fail .
Let me tell you this..
Maka got called back to work.. yay!!!
I am thankful for that, I am thankful for my husbands love towards me and my children.
He knew I am about ready to lose it, he cooked and cleaned for me tonight.
I am thankful for the little things in life. The laughs where their should be tears, the smiles instead of frowns, the love instead of hate, and the friendships instead of loneliness.
I am thankful for tax returns. We are sooooo out of money, but it is going to save our day.
I can't wait to tell you all my experiences and lessons I have learned through this round of trials.
And Melissa, I met your brother -in-law tonight. Wonderful man.
