Excited and Heartbroken

November 21st, 2018 at 11:30 am

Closing is scheduled for Monday. I’m excited. I’ve already set up sinking funds for the HOA, and home repairs.

I’m trying to decide if I want a separate account for the mortgage, I’m opting into auto pay, or combine the HOA and mortgage accounts. I need to decide before the next pay day so I can have those funds direct deposited vs me trying to transfer.

On a different note, yesterday SO and I donated a meal to a family. It’s something we do every year. Usually we give the meal and I’m like okay that was nice but yesterday for the first time, my heart broke. As we were providing the meal, one of the cutest kids you ever saw came up to us and all she kept saying was β€œfood.” β€œFood, food, food, food...” is what she said and kept pointing at the box. I wanted to pick that little darling up and take her home. I’ve never imagined not having enough food. This really bothered me. I’m sharing because as we go on with our daily lives we forget to be thankful. I’m praying that God will bless me, humble me so that I can be as generous as he is with others

    Oh, that sweet baby! Yes, that is heart-breaking. How do you identify your family for the year? Do you work with a charity?
