Thank You

To all you who responded to my Hole in the Floor post, I want you to know your comments and support are very helpful, and you are all appreciated. I am not alone, as I’ve recently heard, 3/4 of Bend’s homes have some snow/ice dam damage.  There are many in the same situation that I’m in.

Most of you asked about my next move.  I did put money down on a small house in Bend’s east side that I was pretty excited about – was being the operative word in this case.  I’m not sure now.  There’s one training certificate related to my pending loan that needs a signature – which has been refused.  The only thing I can do is keep the faith and know things will all work out for everyone’s very best.

What was, isn’t any more:

Several evenings ago the sky was red with flashing lights from emergency vehicles.  The home two houses up from me was on fire and flames rising high into the sky.  The damages to the home are sizable but repairable.  Then “bam,” the house next to the burned house had a major explosion resulting in, apparent, substantial damage. What happened to Skyline Dr. and its back-road quietude?  I feel deeply for the neighbors and their losses.  This week has made up for many years of relatively uneventful living in the mountains.

Even though as I write it’s cold, snowing, and blowing like crazy, I’m imagining warmth and some comfort ahead. My love to all.

The first this spring.
Late Summer

  1. Dear Su,

    I am so very sorry to know that things are so difficult for you at this time. You will continue to be in my prayers.

    Peace and love, Candace

    1. I’m doing well Candace. In spite of the bumps in the road, I am grateful for my life, family, friends and good health.
      I love you and remember backwards when we were looking for the phoenix to rise from the ashes.

  2. Just glad that you and Isabella are safe and warm with family close by. I have no answers for you, but I send my love and am happy that your attitude will help you through this challenging time. It’s not fair, but I know you can dig deep into the possibilities. <3

    1. Thank you for remembering who I am. Are you doing well? Bet the rain isn’t your favorite. Just think how green the Spring will be.
      Love you.

  3. Hi Su, I’m sorry about your house problems and the issues with finding a new home. It’s not something most of us have to face in a non-voluntary circumstance. I certainly wish you a smoother time coming soon.


    1. Thanks Dennis. I appreciate your note and concern. Smoother times will come, and although this is a bump in the road I do have a lot to be grateful for.
