What's Next?

Here lately, it seems as though our blog has become a place of negative thoughts. I'm sorry if I have come across that way. Maybe it's just me, but it bothers me.

Yes, the blog was meant to be a place where our family memories can be reflected on, but at the same time it is a tool that helps me release some of my personal thoughts as well. Which leads me to another "downer"...

Sorry.

May 24th our house was broken into... blah, blah, blah. At the time I thought it was the end of the world, but obviously it was not! We have all moved on and all is well. Until... June 24 th.

Some lovely person in Florida stole our debit card number and decided to go on a shopping spree! Here lately I'm not sure how it could get any worse. I'm a little fearful of what might happen on July 24th! But, really... what are the chances?

The good news is that we will get all the money back, but of course, we had to open a new account and are now dealing with the headache of switching everything over.

ANYWAY...

I guess that was my pity party for the day! We really have had a lot of fun, exciting things happen too, but I just haven't had time to upload the photos to go with the post yet. You understand. So, hopefully sometime this week I can start on it and stop posting about all the other negative garbage.

I always come back to the same thing...

God is ALWAYS in control in EVERY situation.

Everybody has problems, and not matter what they may be, you can always depend on Him. I just keep telling myself that He allows us to go through the tough times to come out stronger in the end. Funny how that works!

Have a great Thursday! ;)

Oh, Amanda, that's awful! That shouldn't happen to anybody, but especially not you guys!! I'm so glad you'll be able to get all the money back, but sorry you have to deal with the inconvenience that goes along with it. :( I look forward to seeing your fun pictures, but it's OK if you have to talk about bad stuff sometimes, too.

I'm so sorry to hear about the debit card TOO. Not to sound judgemental or anything, but it really irks me how disrespectful and dishonest some people can be. We had someone using our credit card number awhile back; thankfully the credit card company flagged it and gave us a call...
