MY LIFE AS I LIVE IT

I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

Blessings in disguise

Just a quick note. Life is good at the Bratcher home...or maybe that should be the 'McIntire Bratcher' home now. Casey and I are about to leave for his athletic physical, so I'm short on time, but wanted to tell you all that we're good.
I had my new stove and refrigerator delivered this weekend and am thrilled with both. The stove, however, did not work and I had to hire an electrician because Home Depot said my wiring wasn't 'strong' enough for the stove. As it turns out, the crew delivering my stove from Home Depot had reversed the wiring when they put the cord on and it was their fault. My electrician documented it though and I'll be turning that bill in to Home Depot.
But, the blessing was the electrician was this sweet guy that was a retired judge from the county I live in (and an ex cop) who is doing this now just to stay busy because apparently you can retire early (after 20 years) from his job. He was a great guy that gave me some great advice and I really appreciated him. So, see...blessings in disguise.
Okay, enough...gotta run. Back later and hugs to each and everyone of you.

Sometimes the most random people in our lives play such key roles and really are blessings in disguise :) I am glad that you have been given one.

I truly believe that God puts 'real angels' in our lives to learn something valuable. This happens a lot when we're at our lowest points.

God bless Kath! Love you! xxoo
