sweet friends, unfortunately this isn't a happy post filled with pictures of progress...but it's an important topic of conversation nonetheless. i hope you bear with me for today, and we will resume our normal scheduled programming tomorrow.
after a trip to my lns this weekend, i was horrified to hear the news that my lady nutcracker stocking and water meter ornament (which had both been dropped off for finishing a while back) had been stolen.
after mending my broken heart and shedding a few tears, i got angry. who would do such a thing? do they realize that the stocking has someone else's name on it? what would someone want with an unfinished canvas?
so many people in my city lost all their possessions almost 8 years ago in the flood-waters of katrina. cherished heirlooms that could never be replaced. our friends up north experienced the same catastrophic heartbreak when their most beloved possessions washed away with sandy. 20 families in connecticut go to sleep at night praying for their babies in heaven.
at the end of the day...it's something that can be replaced. while i hate what happened, i still have hope deep in my heart that it will turn up, but i know it won't.
i hope that someone else out there has experienced this. but if not, thanks for understanding. like all obstacles in life, i will tackle this head on, and move forward.
thanks for reading...
