The Sofa...

Remember this?!?! It finally arrived. You can read the full story here, but to make it short: we ordered this sofa on June 23rd. By mid-August, two sofas had been delivered, but both were severely damaged and had to be returned. After all this fiasco and making phone calls, we got an email last week letting us know that we had been refunded the full amount for our purchase. We were just thankful to get a full refund. Well, Tuesday afternoon I got a call saying that I had a delivery and needed to schedule a time either on Wed. or Fri. for the home delivery. Of course I said Wednesday because we are going out of town for a wedding today. Lo and behold at 4:45 a giant delivery truck came roaring down our driveway, and to my surprise a pristine sectional sofa just like the one I had ordered 4 months and 5 days ago, was unloaded into our living room. Can y'all even believe it?! For a while I was thinking that the Lord did not want us to have a sofa, but patience and kindness got us this far! Hopefully they won't try to come and take it back! We were told we were going to be given discounts and relieved of shipping expenses, but I had no idea we would get a full refund and a sofa. Here are some pictures: (It is huge and takes up much of the living room-keep in mind we are in a rental home, so it's not a big deal).And just as we were getting settled in to watch a movie on our brand new sofa together, the emergency phone rang...so to the clinic we went and didn't get home until 11:30pm. But we got our sofa-YAY!!!!!! "The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride." Ecclesiastes 7:8
