Enormously grateful that these people are safe and sound after some scary happenings earlier this week. 🙏
Sad truth is that there are sucky people out there...sucky people who see others doing well and either have ill will against them or do harm to them outright.
Tuesday morning, as I was cooling down from my workout, someone broke the window of my car and stole my wallet, cell, and house keys along with a bunch of other valuables. As we were filing a police report, they robbed our house. It was a horrible, horrible feeling coming home to see our stuff missing, all our valuables, every single important document and identification for all of us gone, they even stole memorabilia from when the kids were born, school work, first baby teeth, etc. My heart broke just a little bit as I watched my husband shed a tear when he found out his XC state championship ring was gone, and broke again when I watched my son burst into tears and fall to the ground when he found out his vision equipment to help him read was gone. As a wife and a mom, these things hurt deep.
This is my home- my children’s home. It’s a horrible, violating feeling, and it’s taken us a few days to process it all.
We have precise information that the two men entered our house at 11:06 am. At 11:11, my mom was 5 min down the road bringing nico home. She randomly decided to stop and treat nico to a hotwheel because his preschool teachers said he had such a great day. Had she just gone home, her and nico would have walked in on the men robbing our house. We are a Christian family, and we do believe in Divine Intervention- for me, this was an act of God protecting my most precious gifts.
We are grateful.
Yes, we are hurt. Yes, we were targeted and feel violated. Yes, we now know we have to be more proactive about protecting our family. But, despite being hurt by these scumbag low lives, we remain hopeful and confident that there are more good people than bad. Proof for us- for the past two days, every person we’ve come in contact with- many complete strangers- have been incredibly gracious offering us their support, time, and even money to help. ❤️ it’s comforting getting to see the good right now
