Thankful For The Roof!

I have so much to be greatful for this week. But today I am most greatful for the roof over my head. Early last week, we discovered a leak in our ceiling. We took down a few tiles, tore out the insulation and let it dry out. We thought it was just a small leak since the roof was covered with snow and Carl discovered a shingle missing. He replaced the shingle, the water dried up so we thought we had it all taken care of. So this past weekend we decided to take down the rest of the tile ceiling and replace it with gyproc. But when we did, we found a bigger problem, all of the insulation was soaked, it was a huge mess. We tore out the rest of it and its in the process of drying now, we did manage to find the leak between the old and new roofs. The roof has been open now for a couple days and it gets kinda chilly in here, so I cant wait till we can replace the insulation and ceiling on the weekend. But even though it was a huge mess and a pain in the butt, I was thankful. Thankful that we found the leak before it got worse and cost us alot more money. But mostly thankful for the roof over our heads. Thankful we have a home, that we arent homeless and living on the streets. Thankful that I have a husband who is handy and can fix things cheaper than hiring a professional. I love that even in a bad situation I can be greatful. It is a blessing to be able to see good even in a bad situation.



  1. I too am grateful for a good roof! Last summer, finally... my poor roof was dressed in new shingles! Soon after my ceilings were given a brand new look!

    Today I am ever so thankful for these two boys of mine. Yesterday I had two bouquets of flowers delivered, with "I love you Mom"s on the cards. Then today when I got home there was a fancy, yummy, chocolate thing (with a red heart on top) waiting on my table for me. Magic, eh?!

    Always so much to thank God for.

  2. You are so lucky Maija to have such wonderful sons who think of their mom that way, or maybe it isnt luck at all, maybe they just had a great mom to teach them. Glad you had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Gotta love when magic happens like that!!!
