The FedEx man just came with a package from our mortgage lender and good news was inside! They accepted our home modification agreement and our new loan will allow us to stay in our home. We have been in this process for months and have known that foreclosure was the next step our lender would take if they didn’t accept the modification. We have been preparing to leave our home, but haven’t known what we would do or where we would go. At first we assumed we wouldn’t be here for Christmas, but as the months have dragged on we started to hope that we would be.

And now…we get to stay forever!

We love it here.


I think this is why I just couldn’t get up the gumption to clean my room or office. Why put time into cleaning something that you’ll have to be leaving soon? Now cleaning will have new meaning.

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for this with us. We are so grateful.
