The part we needed for the oven came in yesterday and we quickly installed it. Ok, he installed but I helped (I ordered the part). Well any how, it now works perfectly! With a quick clean up the oven even looks new! I'm am very blessed indeed.
Husband will be waking up to the smell of homemade biscuits this morning. A celebration for sure!
These past few days when I think about everything that has quit working in the house these past few months (refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, and washer/dryer), I'm also thinking of the people of western Kentucky and neighboring states. Many of the survivors of the terrible tornado outbreak are now waking up in a shelter, motel, or friend/relatives house. Everything they had was literally blown away. Gone in one night with a mighty wind. With that place they called home gone, there is no place to cook dinner for the family tonight. They may not have any of their own clothing left, let alone have a place to wash them. All of their processions just gone.
They also are grieving for family or friends that passed away, for a life that they once lived, and the devastation of their home land that will more than likely take years to look somewhat like it did before. It must be overwhelming. I'm sure though they are just thankful to be alive. I know I would be. Just like that those little things in our house that have broken were put into prospective.
