A BURST of Reality!

Hello friends!

Thank you for all your fun comments on the hmoon posts. It is crazy to go from vacationing just back into real life. [confession: I was kind of excited to have a routine again] I love relaxing and just hanging out with no agenda... but there comes a time :) Ah... and the reality officially hit when we stepped off the plane. BURR!

Our 2nd BURST of reality hit last night.

I came home to the garage door opened and Josh's car inside. I saw a car at our neighbors house, but did not think too much of it. Josh was NO where in the house... for a slight moment I freaked out... then remembered... the cars that were at the neighbors. This is the neighbors home in which we had NEVER seen anyone or any cars at before. [we were always so curious because we never saw anyone]

Sure enough. There was my husband talking to construction-worker-looking men. Our neighbor's house has been empty since May and their PIPES BURST. Yes. You read that right. Their water was never shut off & because we live in town homes/a middle unit... our home was affected too.


What a joy and BURST of reality! We have water from their pipes seeping thru the walls and dripping in our garage and our living room floor is soaked. Fans are airing out the floor and a nice gentleman came to assist us.


Well... if that's not a welcome to reality reminder, I am not sure what is? I couldn't help but think of all the positives... my mind was swirling! Maybe we can get hardwood floors now? :)... Wow what if this would have happened while we were in The Bahamas? ...God is good and true that he allowed Josh to be home and not at class! We are meeting more of our neighbors! We may have to get a new garage, but our house is still in tact!...

My friends, yet again a story of the Lord's faithfulness. And. A BURST of reality that life is not always a vacation :)

OOOO, Ria! What an adventure! THAT IS definitely a burst into reality. Praying YOU DO get hardwood floors. Thanks for being so positive! :) xoxo

Cameron Ensz said...

Ria! WOW! That is insane that that would happen to you guys! I am glad everything is starting to work out again and you guys are working to get it all fixed! Bless you all through this! Prayingggg

Mrs. A said...

oh yuck! You're positive attitude is so refreshing but that really stinks.Hope it all works out soon.

Mandi Miller said...

Sorry about that! But you have such joy! Wait to go for looking at the positives in such a crummy situation! And I do hope you get some hard wood floors through this!!

Lindsay said...

ohh boy. thats what home ownership does to you! We had a night where we couldn't get the water shut off from our main water valve and it was spraying ALL NIGHT LONG down in our laundry area. God certainly teaches us lots of lessons in the unexpected events of life!

Anne said...

Oh dear....that stinks! I hope nothing was ruined too badly... welcome home, 'huh?

Jen, a priorfatgirl said...

BLECK! What a bummer! But...no time like the present to change up the flooring!

David@noisecake said...

Ria, glad to see you still have a positive attitude. I would be pissed if this happened!

I think there is something about honeymoons!

On the way back from our honeymoon (an hour away from home) we were involved in an car accident with a drunk driver with a suspended license. It was a mess & still is since we have not received reimbursement from the driver's insurance. But you always thank God, because it could have been much worse! I hope the house gets fixed up quickly! :)

Just Me said...

Is your furniture ok? I had the same thought about hardwood floors, and on the way back from our honeymoon we hit a deer and totaled the car...oh life. =)

Jessica said...

Oh no! I'm sorry that happened to you. That's awesome that you have such a positive outlook, though. I don't know if I could be so positive if that happened to me!

Joni Lenzen said...

So sad about this for you! All things work together for good . . .so we can expect a GOOD outcome! Sorry reality had to hit quite so hard though . . .

Claire said...

I sent a couple awards your way :) Praying for you as you get everything cleaned up!!!! God will bless your thankful spirit!

ReJOYce! said...

Hi Dear! I'm glad you found me!!! I'm becoming a new follower! My husband and I also think of all the positives in all situations ( even when they are really bad ) and we always end up seeing the Lord's faithfulness. Have a Blessed Day!
