Hey guys,

I have lived in this house for almost 7 years and today it hit me. I mean this blew my mind.

It brought tears to my eyes. Ok, before you think I’m crazy let me tell you why.

When I was a little boy I wouldn’t dare take a glass out of the cabinet and drink from it without washing it first. The roaches had crawled all over them and the rats would leave droppings all around them. It was bad. I hated going into our kitchen, especially at night. It was scary. When I turned on the light there was no telling what I would see. Rats bigger than shoes, roaches everywhere. I remember being afraid to open the kitchen drawers because mice would jump out and run, and we really tried to keep it clean. So you know from a boy to a man I carried some of that fear with me. So to think that I have been taking glasses out of these cabinets for years, and opening my kitchen drawers without fear is a blessing.
