This Week I Am Grateful For~ A New Home!
WooHoo! We found our home and we are so stinking excited! Just when I had given up all hope of finding something, we found it!
We had applied for a few homes to rent and we kept getting turned down! I finally got angry and asked one of the property managers why we were turned down and she told me because of poor landlord/tenant relations! What the???
Our landlord here had told them we were sucky tenants! Was that when we put up without air conditioning 3 times this summer? How about no air for three full weeks one of those times? Or how about when the dishwasher breaking and her not wanting to pay to fix it! Or when the pool has broken down and each summer we have only been able to use it for a month and a half ?
Hmm I guess we suck! Probably because she is angry we won't stay here while she tries to sell it! Whatever!
Well, after I heard the reason why I was really freakin out. How were we going to ever find a place to live if we were being turned down right and left?
Once I had my little breakdown we prayed and decided to just leave it in the hands of the Lord. I just prayed for the peace to accept whatever his will might be.
The next morning I found a new ad in the paper for a house we hadn't seen yet! We went to see it and knew it was the one! We were the first people to see it! We tentatively told the landlord we wanted it and asked for a rental application. He told us he doesn't need one. He likes us. All we need to do is sign the lease! Freakin huge bonus?? He told us the deposit was only $500! Unbelievable! Mom even looked him up on the county recorders office cause it seemed too good to be true! Yeah~he checks out .He is a Dr who owns several properties. He told us he bought this one when he remarried and had stepkids to fill it. when he got divorced he just didn't need a big house anymore!
We went to sign the lease tonight and he asked me if I minded him leaving the piano for us to use and the six bar stools at the counter! I wanted those bar stools and had actually told Tony I wanted to make a offer to buy them from him! I get them for free plus a piano which is something I have always wanted! ANDDD~ Rent is almost $900 less than what we are paying now! And I like this home so much better than where we are now! The kitchen is great, and I love the back yard! The home is big!It has a pool that is actually fenced! We got everything we wanted in this home!
I feel as if my heavenly Father loves me and heard and answered my prayers . I feel at peace now!
For this I am very grateful!
