A time to petition & a time to refrain from petitioning...

If you know me, you know I'm easy going, I try not to talk about politics and my idea of a good evening is watching the various shows I am following with my hubby while we eat dinner. I absolutely love the place that I live. I love the people most of all, they make this place. Of course, with low income housing you will have some crazies and crimeys, but I can overlook that. One of my favorite things has been my experience with the maintenance here. There is a great sense of community and they definitely are a part of that. I petitioned today to keep my maintenance guy who was wrongfully fired. The people I talked to made me love this place all the more. A dear neighbor of mine watched my kids while I went. While I was gone, the office called and requested that I stop petitioning because people were complaining (kind of the point, but okay)... long story short, taking action takes a lot of energy. It stresses me out a lot, but I know that I couldn't sit by and miss this opportunity to fight an injustice that hits so close to home, it practically hit my home. The thing that gets me through the stress (btw, I'm not used to stress) is when I pray, I am surrounded with peace and assurance. I love prayer! I love the scriptures and I love my home and community.
