Tornado Destroyed My Business - Page 5

Hi Debbie-
Yes, I am one of your customers. In fact, I had ordered in early March. You might remember that we having issues with the cold weather making the sheets brittle.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I still have rough moments, but each day is easier. I'm a pretty positive person and it sure is helping now. I am seeing this as an opportunity to create the shop that I've wanted and also an opportunity to streamline. I know in my heart that God has not abandoned me and that greater things lie ahead.

I am going to have to replace my edible image system (we were unable to save anything). If you can send me some info in a private message I would be appreciative.
Thanks,
Teresa

I am so happy to announce that I signed the lease for my new business location!! For the first time in weeks I actually feel good. The insurance process continues. It is long and involved with a total loss, but hopefully we are nearing the end. There is an unbelievable amount of work ahead, but at least the process has begun. My spirit has been renewed by the kind, thoughtful gestures of so many of you. Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support.
Teresa

super exciting! You know, not many people have the opportunity to exercise their thoughts of "If I had this to do over again, here's what I'd do different...." Of course going thru a tornado is an extreme way to get there! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif But go forward with new opportunities to achieve!! thumbs_up.gif

Thanks ladies!! My husband that as I signed the lease today he saw the first geniune smile that he'd seen on my face in weeks. There is so much to do, but I'm really looking forward to the work. Sitting around for almost a month has been unbearable. Too much time to think; too much time to feel sorry for myself. So I know I'll be exhausted, but I can't wait to get started.

That is such great news! I'm very happy for you. Exhaustion beats, well, just about anything else you've been feeling lately. I wish you soooo much more success in this "new" business than ever before.

Just wanted to post an update. First, thanks to all of you who continue to pray, think the good thoughts, and send notes, cards and gifts and supplies!! You are the BEST!! Progress is being made, and I actually see it. We really have done a lot in a short time. It's exhausting though, trying to do a lot with a little, but it really is coming together.

However, there is always something. I heard from the building owner for the first time this past week. Seven weeks after my loss!! And only because he can't demolish the building until I sign off on the destruction of the property remaining in the building...which was almost everything. Then the ultimate slap in the face!! We find out the someone had the audacity to have an auction and sold MY property out of the condemned and falling down building!! Can you believe it?? The owner knew nothing about it until one of his workers told him that he arrived Thursday just as it was ending!! He was livid. I was livid!! My husband was livid!! Who DOES stuff like that?? I will be sooooo glad when this is over. They even stole the mailbox. The mailbox survived the tornado, but not thieves. I swear. What a week!!

" Wow, so much tragedy going on I didn't expect to read anything about people's business going up in smoke, being destroyed by natural elements and so on. Its very depressing. Reading your comments & your post 'bout what's going on after loosing your cake shop and how you're opening a new one brings it all to another level of hope for the future, fighting for what was taken away from you. You are an inspiration. Wishing you all the best for the now, near & long future. Take care"
