orphan house, and that closing date has been pushed back to who knows when. Sigh. We have all of our ducks in a row on our end, we are just waiting on the sellers end. But, just as I start to feel sorry for myself because we are crammed in here, I'm reminded how fortunate we are. Our apartment is much larger and nicer than some larger families have. Just as I think that we are never going to have a house, there are fires near-by and 4 homes get burnt to the ground along with all of their things. Just as I think that I'm never going to get land, a friend of mine is in a dispute over 17 feet of their backyard, where they are going to have to move sprinklers and fencing. I feel like this is a trial, but when I look around, I realize how truly blessed I am to have a generally happy and healthy family, a safe place to live, wonderful supportive family, and great friends.
