So I’m just feeling really grateful for the people in my life right now.
A few days ago, I posted on facebook that I was looking for a place in Baltimore for my brother and I to live for the summer. People I haven’t talked to in years commented with suggestions, and told me they would help me look. One lady I used to go to church with (back when my mom made me go to church) shared my status on her own newsfeed and in her neighborhood listserv.
An hour ago, she gave me the name and phone number of a friend looking for a housesitter for the summer. We’ll get to live there practically free! And in an awesome area to boot! I haven’t called yet because it’s a little late for phone calls on the east coast, but I’m so excited. And so thankful that she was willing to help me find a place to live. And thankful this stranger is willing to let my brother and I stay in her home.
One of my friends has also been especially awesome, offering to check out a place I thought we would get after I asked a bunch of people to, offering for us to stay with her if nothing else works out, and today, when I sent her the address of another place we’d almost closed on (and still may, if housesitting place for some reason falls through) and asked her to just drive by offered to go knock on the door and ask to see it/if they’re actually planning on leaving when they’re supposed to.
This is incredibly garbled, I’m sure, but my point is, I have awesome, amazing people in my life. And times like this remind me of that.
