Well, the news of the hour or day or week...I have my braces off! I had them for exactly one year. I am so thankful to have them off, and I am so thankful that my teeth are so nice and straight. A great big "Thank-you" to my parents!!!
Here's my story of the day...
Driving in Detroit and all of the sudden realizing that your gas tank is below empty is not a good feeling. I had to get off the express-way in a really bad neighborhood...the first gas station I stopped at was out of gas. So, I drove a little further and stopped at another station. The building looked like an old block garage and the windows were stuffed with plastic bags... I could even see into the building there were so many bags! Thankfully this one had gas, and I was able to get some and continue on my merry way. My cousin was nearly is tears she was so scared and was like "Emily, everyone is looking at us..."...my response "every one looks at us when we drive a car like this..."
I thanked the Lord for keeping us safe!
Hope that you all have a great weekend!!!!
