it's a funny thing--getting your house robbed.
we now find ourselves picking things up of value (either monetary or personal) and saying, "hey, at least they didn't take_______."
and for a moment, we're happy.
what a weird thing it took to make us appreciate all the little treasures we have in our home.
my favorite "hey they didn't take" item was mentioned last night:
we were brushing our teeth with our sonicare toothbrushes that we've had for years (and are really of no value to anyone but our teeth), but i had been crying all day and probably even had tears running down my face while brushing and marcus said, through his toothpaste foaming mouth, "hey, at least they didn't take our sonicares, so i guess we're still pretty rich."
*this story might make that funnier...
