I just have to keep telling this to myself.  Things have been quite stressful lately.  I have felt like a single mother this month because my hubby has been so busy with other things and we have had things fall on us that I can't handle alone. 

We had 5-6 tornados hit our city of Kearney on Thurday night.  We are so lucky and blessed that we had no damage to our house other than a tree branch falling to the ground - but the rest of Kearney is pretty beat up.  An apartment complex 3 blocks from our house was demolished.  We didn't have power for more than hours after the storm - I never have been so thankful for power in my whole life.  But, the important thing is that NO ONE in Kearney was injured from the tornado and our house was spared.

 Speaking of our house, it is sold and we close on July 1st which means I have to find a place to rent before then.  I am freaking out because we don't have a place to live and haven't had any luck finding any place.  It doesn't help that we have pets - no one wants to rent to people with pets.

 So, even though this may not sound like alot, I feel like I have the world on my shoulders.  I just have to tell myself that things happen for a reason (even though I may not know the reason) and God will guide me through this maze called life.  I have to remember also that the most important thing is that I have my family and the three of us will make it through everything together!
