Thankful for a Leaky Roof

As summer is soon ending, we had a few things around the house that needs fixing before the snow flies. The roof needs complete re-roofing. The sidings needs to be replaced. The porch and the deck needs fixing. There is some water in the basement and perhaps my sump pump needs repair. Just thinking of all the expenses that goes with all of these makes me want to pull my hair. (I forgot I have no more to pull!)

I was grumbling until I placed my problems in perspective. I realized that there are many people in the world today whose concern is having no roof nor walls to shelter them tonight. And I’m griping for a roof that needs repair?

I am thankful for the roof over my head. Even if it leaks.
