Well on March 20... people broke into our home and a thievin' they would go. Even though it takes a bit to settle the skittishness... we have found so many blessings on all the things that didn't happen, all the things not taken.
Fortunately, no one was home at the time, no one was hurt. But knowing someone was in your home... well, it takes something from you that money or insurance companies can't replace.
I know the Good Lord always has a reason, and sometimes we simply aren't privy to it. But we're hoping that the shopping spree they had with our checkbook, will help get them caught. Another blessing... I was able to make it to the bank in time to shut the door on them. Sadly, the stores they shopped at are now responsible for thousands, because they simply didn't do their job.
Needless to say, without boring ya to tears... crafting and creating has been at the bottom of my list. I am trying, little by little to meet upcoming deadlines... faceless dolls are waiting for me to give them an expression. I'm thinking they might not like what they get right now, so they wait patiently! LOL -- hmmm, this could be called my Dark Period, eh... rabid rabbits anyone! hehehe
So take precautions my friends, people aren't always nice and don't always do the right thing. But I fully believe the economy doesn't create these type of people, they have it in 'em already. I know too many out of work and struggling, and this type of 'activity', never enters their heads.
The Lord is good and in Him I find my peace!
