The Big Computer Drama

Monday, May 21, 2012

Oh my goodness, I have so many things to tell you guys!! First of all, the most amazing thing happened this week. If you have seen my few status updates you will know that my computer suddenly up and died on May 1st and through much waiting and drama we discovered that my computer was completely fried (it was the motherboard and to fix it was going to cost almost as much as a new computer). So basically, with no way to salvage it and absolutely no money to buy a new computer I figured I was pretty much sunk. It was kind of discouraging, especially considering that would end up counting me out of yet another semester at school. Then out of the blue I got the biggest surprise, an awesome couple that I know through work gave me their old computer and refused to accept any sort of payment. I actually stood at my cash register and started to cry. I am sad to say that there was a time in my life when I would have turned up my nose at charity like that, but after a lot of hardship I realize how much it can mean for everyone involved, it can be a way to both humble us and give us hope or just a little encouragement.

So to make a long story short, I am back in business and I have a ton of catching up to do. I actually have a lot to tell you all, but that is for another time. For now I need to get some sleep and I am just so incredibly thrilled to be back!! Have a great night!!!

    Welcome back!!!!!!
    That is so great...our computers had the same issue. After 2 months without one, i'm using a replacement one of our pastors is letting us use. Turns out the problem of my computer was the motherboard so until we cen get the money to get it fixed, we have a temp computer. Thankfully the cost is from $60 to $70.

    That's great! There was a time in my life that I would have had a hard time accepting things, as well, but no longer. It is a blessing to the giver as well.
