Blessed

After careful examination of the damage to our home, the results are more extensive than originally expected. The roof was inspected by a roofing company - it is deemed a total loss. Among other areas that require replacing are the stucco mailbox...


...all window screens and gutters...


...ornamental stucco around windows...


...pool cover, and pool/patio furniture (see previous post).

Other neighbors in our subdivision suffered the same amount of damage. Yet, it could have been much worse. A sleep over with our grandson, Ayden provided comic relief. He is such fun and a joy to be around. We met Ayden's family for lunch after church today. Ayden and his mommy provided levity to an ordinary Sunday.

Like mother...


...like son. Thanks for the laughs!

As for Ayden's younger brother and sister, well...they are just too CUTE! Yes, we are truly blessed.

Aren't grandchild...Grand!
Sorry to hear about the damage to your home. Look at it this way, there will be people employed to repair all of the storm damage...

Yikes, maybe I should look at our house more carefully. I do not think we had as much hail as you did. Was your yard covered? Sorry to see this much damage.

Wow, Jaime was telling me about the storms but I never though that hail could do that much damage. Thank goodness for insurance!

Oh my. What a mess. I was wondering about the roof. It had to have been damaged with the size of that hail.
