Blessings in a Leaky Roof

Our roof sprang a leak.  It rained pretty hard over the weekend and I noticed a wet smell in Nate's room and water staining on the ceiling.

The house had a new roof put on right before we moved in, but we had nothing to do with it.  We didn't know the name of the roofer and didn't have any paperwork.  Then I had a thought.  Our real estate agent was truly excellent.  (If you ever intend to move to middle TN, let me know and I'll refer you to him.  He was the best agent we have ever used, and we have bought and sold several times over the years.).  So, I emailed our excellent real estate agent.  He was able to get the name of the roofer for me.  The roof is under warranty, so they came to take a look the next day.  Nothing was found that should have been causing the leak, but he nailed down a few nails that popped up a bit and promised to return again if we had further problems.

It has been a year of these little things that have made problems, that could have been great financial burdens, be taken care of.  Justin's car died.  His parents had a spare.  My dad fixed the old one.  Kate broke her arm.  The medical expenses, huge expenses even after insurance, have been largely covered by a supplemental insurance because she was at gymnastics when it happened, instead of in our backyard.

God has been faithful to provide for us.  We are thankful.  We are blessed.
