Count your blessings!

Everyone is fine, but this is what is left of Jeff's Aunt and Uncles house (Jeff told me that I needed to start my sentences with everyone is fine next time I deliver bad news to him)! It caught on fire Sat. night, and there was nothing they could do to save it. They both have been amazingly strong and positive, calming, and a true inspiration to those around them. Although they lost everything which is horrible, what matters most is that Al and Janet are still with us. For this we are very thankful!

You never think that something like this will happen to you or people you know, but when it does it hits close to home. We are counting our blessings, and this has really opened our eyes to things that we need to do if something unthinkable like this were to happen to our family. Check your smoke alarms, add new ones, and get important documents in order and a safe place.

**On a lighter note...About the missing socks...I found 12 matches, but I added 8 singles. Two steps forward and one step back.

**Also I started soccer practice (tryouts) today with the high school. Oh my gosh FREEZING! I am still thawing out my toes. I am excited about getting back into the game.

glad to hear everyone is okay. It's important to be reminded of our blessings. I hope the family is able to put things back together quickly.
