When it rains, it pours..

Well, just had to share this beautiful picture of my kitchen with you…


We had a pipe bust in our wall behind the sink and it flooded my kitchen.  Those green things are huge dryers trying to dry up the water.

We just installed our new hardwood floors this past year!

The only blessing out of this…I’m getting a new dish washer!  I think the old one came with the house when it was built in 1968.  Not kiddin’!

Oh well, as Mom would say…"It’s only stuff.  Those things can be replaced, your loved ones can’t.”

So true, Mama.



  1. A perfect way to look at it, Traci and I am glad that you are still listening to Mama…

    Will the hardwood floors survive?? I hope your insurance pays for it. We had a similar situation and we had leftover money after repairs to do a bit of remodeling!!! :-)

    Good luck to you, my friend!!


  2. your momma's saying is so right. It truly is just stuff…and hey, you get a new washer out of it. So, in a way it was a blessing that the pipe broke.
    Hope the hardwood floors survive the flooding and you get your kitchen back to normal soon.

  3. Many moons ago on Christmas Eve, my hubby's birthday, we fortunately were home at the time, we heard a pipe break in ususally warm Texas. This year was unusually icy cold. We still had major clean-up and repair, BUT we were home to catch this. As we walked the neighborhood at that time, so many were away for Christmas and water was running from out from under their garage doors. Major aweful…ceilings had collapsed. Wish you well with this and God Bless you,

  4. Oh, bless your heart. What a mess you've had on your hands. I am not a fan of pipes; I have to remember how blessed I am to have them in my house!

    Good for you for looking at the silver lining in the clouds! I'm glad that you'll get a new dishwasher.

    Thank you for sharing your mom's wisdom with us!
