Just Thought You Should Know

Wow!.. I just saw this, this morning, and I felt strongly enough about it to want to post it. It could happen to me, my family, or any one of us. I just hope this is as informative to you as I found it was for me.



I have never heard of a "power punch" before, but I am definitely purchasing one for myself and for my daughter! I'm not sure where yet, but I assume I could get one from a cart parts store, so that's where I'll start. If they do not carry them, then perhaps they can point me in the right direction.

Well, on a sadder note, it looks like I'm going to have to move. I rent. The house is now up for sale, and for related reasons beyond my control, I now have to move. I have 30 days. This is a shock to me right now. I LOVE my home, and it breaks my heart... But I've been through tougher times than this, and I just have to remember God always provides. He never gives us more than we can handle, and He will help me get through this..


What's hardest, but most important, to remember too, right now, is that it's not the house that makes the home. We will make plenty of new happy memories in our new home. My home is not a place. It is the people and love within it.

Tina, what a lovely thought for the day, it is so true possessions mean nothing in a home with out a family how wonderful. Thanks for visiting me, I love your icon how wonderful that you drew it, drawing is so fun to escape in another world for a little bit. Have a great day sweety and thank you for all your continued prayers and thoughts regarding the family we appreciate them.

Blessings,
Heidi

My thoughts and prayers are with you. When God closes a door, He always opens a window (and provides a ladder, too). Hang in there friend.

Tina! Moving...Yes it is hard. You'll have to channel your inner gypsy.
You already have a great attitude. Your new home will be just as much a home as this one is.
Bless you!

Moving is hard work and I'm sorry that it's not your choice to do so. That makes it even more difficult. I wish you luck and hope that your new place will make for a very happy home ;-)

Kind Regards,
Doris

You've got a home...you just need a house to put it in. And I know you'll find the perfect house.:)

Oh, honey, I am so sorry about the house selling. You are right about being able to make a home wherever you are but 30 days sure isn't much time to find another place.

Sending good thoughts and prayers that you find something even more fun and nice and comfy for you and those you love.

My heart is sad for you, Tina, but I can't think of a better person to be able to hurdle this obstacle and make everything turn out amazing. You have so many gifts and talents, and your enthusiasm and love is so contagious. I know you'll smile and laugh your way through this, and as always, things like this end up making us stronger in the end. You are so right . . . God will not give us more than we can handle. You will be in my prayers. - Keri

Moving can be so miserable but I have a good feeling about this move of yours! That it will turn out to be very positive even though right now it is scary and upsetting! And you will be all settled in by Thanksgiving and Christmas and will have a really cozy nice holiday time right off the bat! Best of luck!

I have one of those devices. We had it in Florida where little lakes abound and rain sometimes makes them invisible!

I'm so sorry you have to move. Hope it is easy to find a place there. We could find nothing in Stowe area when we moved here so bought and now can't sell. I so want to live in less space.

On my blog, I am posting autumn for those who love it and saying nothing about the winter that I am dreading. I am SO SO SO a southern BIG city girl. I'll stay inside here except to go to the airport from November until April. I can feel the cabin fever creeping up on me.

Hiya Tina, hope your morning is going well. Yeah its Friday have yourself a wonderful weekend. Thank you for your lovely comment today.

Blessings,
Heidi

You have such a great attitude about moving. You are absolutely right. New memories will be made in a new place and before long it too will feel like home. Good luck with the move.

I'm so glad you posted the video about getting out of a car in the water. Good information but I have to tell you it absolutely gave me the shivers because my biggest fear is drowning.

MiniMadWoman said...

Tina, I'm sorry to hear that you have to move on such short notice. It's hard enough to move when it is planned, never mind when it's out of your control.

I just know that God will find a wonderful new house for you to make new memories in . . . be strong and have faith!

Blessings,
Teresa

Good luck with finding a place to move to. The next place will be good too, especially with all the love you have to put into it.

Lisa said...

You know I used to worry about what I would save. And then I see all these stories and think I would be glad with a full set of clothes and my family and animals! There would be no end to thinking about which thingies I should take. I can get more! Thanks for sharing!
Hugs, Lisa

Hi Tina - oh my gooness, just read this, and what a shock! What a stinker - 30 days isn't long, and it will be a frantic packing session for you (I have a feeling you have rather a lot of STUFF, lol).

Still, think positive - you'll be in somewhere new and wonderful and all settled in, in time for Christmas - and you may just love it more than your old place! Chin up, be brave, you'll be FINE - you know we are all rooting for you!

moving is hard and especially when you have memories in the home you are leaving. God has plans and maybe the new home will be even more special. You are in my prayers, stay strong.

Hi Tina, Oh My! I have been very busy and have missed your posts and visits. Turns out we are in similar situations... Go have a read on my blog; ) Sending hugs and a chuckle of understanding. Have a great week! xJ
