My eyes will be puffy, swollen and red rimmed forever. (Forever = the weekend.)
I (we) (Drew and I) submitted an offer on a house and the deal fell through just before the midnight deadline.
I really loved that house. It was SO perfect and lovely and felt like home as soon as I walked through the front door. My brain knows that God has something else in mind, but my aching heart is a little bit broke. Mentally I'd moved in already.
I may not be emotionally strong enough the play the current version of the Real Estate Game. SO hard on the nerves.
Still praying for a God-sized miracle. But am willing to accept that my Plan A may have to be adjusted once God's Plan A is revealed. It probably involves India.
In the meantime, I'm eating/sobbing my way through a McCain Deep n Delicious Chocolate Cake.
Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Staff Fun Day today kept my mind occupied (somewhat) while I waited for news during the day.
2. Birthday dinner with friends tonight kept my my mind occupied (barely) while I waited for news all evening.
3. Texts from friends and kids at midnight when everything collapsed, assuring me that God has a better house in mind.
