Sad Day....My House is Under Water

Can't believe it!
I'm flooded. 
Woke up, stepped out of bed...
slush, slush....

My whole house!

Tory, her hubby and another soldier in his unit
and his wife hurried down to help me.
But when they got there,
they realized how hopeless it was.
It's still raining....
had to walk away from it,
and come down here to stay.

Hmmm...
trying to see the good in this...
Nope....
still can't see it....
looking...
looking....

  19. So sorry to hear that your house is flooded. My parents were flooded once and my mom still mentions how hopeless it felt. But they had many people pitch in to help with the cleanup and everything turned out fine. I am sure that you will find many people willing to help you and that soon everything will be back to normal. The important thing is that you are safe. I will be keeping you in my prayers.

  21. Dear John'aLee.... I am so sad for you. Its been a summer hasn't it? First your AC and now this. :-( Do you need The Guitar Man to come home? I'm SO glad you have Tori and her husband nearby and a darling little precious grand-son to sit and cuddle through it all. Looking for the sun to come out for you... hugs and love. ~ Dori ~

  25. It must have been very scary to wake up to find yourself flooded, especially when it was unexpected. We always believe it happens to other people, not ourselves. Once the shock has passed it is important to try and focus on the positive. You are safe & were not injured & that is the most important thing to be grateful for. You have family & friends to support you & shelter you while the damage is assessed & then repaired. I am sure you are in shock right now, When you are able to know exactly what the extent of the damage is & have a plan for repairing the damaged areas you will be able to see that you will get your home & your life back. Try to remind yourself what a strong person you are & that you will get through this. You are safe and with family that love you. I am hoping that the waters receed quickly & that cleaning & repairs can begin soon. I know it feels terrible to feel you are not in control of your life & to have to sit waiting to know the extent of the damage & how it can be reapired. This is a bump in the road of life & you need to remind yourself that your situation is temporary.
    I am sure you will get through this, now you need to have the same belief in yourself. Sometimes the best thing to do is have a good cry. Experiencing a flood is like a experiencing a small death. You need to grieve your losses & gather your strength to rebuild. Please try to take things step by step and not think too far ahead. keeping focused in the moment will help keep you stay together emotionally.
    I will pray for the waters to receed quickly & for God to give remind you that you have all the inner-strength needed to get through a difficult situation like you are experiencing.. I am so sorry this happened to you, but I have every belief that you will come through this & be better & stronger than you were before. It will take a lot more than some flooding to stop the ranchers daughter & quilter never quit.

  27. I work on Brick Church Pike--yes the street was closed because of the flooding. I was "parked" on Briley Parkway for one hour in front of Bass Pro while waiting for the ponding on Briley to clear. Are things better for you now?
