Done in! It’s how I have felt this week – definitely not the way I wanted to start the new year. I am exhausted and part of me wants to just give up, but I will find reasons to smile and let the good triumph over the bad. There always are good things that happen. It’s just that some days take more searching to find that good.
Things Making Me Feel Done In
God Will Let the Good Triumph!
|Seat Belt Ticket (And I ALWAYS wear my seatbelt!-Stupid Me!!!)||It should not go on my license or affect my insurance.|
|Two people I love who have a large family are experiencing marital trouble.||They are still together and that means there is hope. Please pray for them.|
|Our Propane FROZE! We had no heat on the coldest day yet this winter.||I have a great friend who crawled around our freezing attic with me, made phone calls until he found the problem, and then ran heaters up – even though he was not feeling well. Thanks Fluff! 😉|
|My 14 year old, who has been not feeling well for a while, finally really got sick, was up all night, and had to stay home from school. I know it’ll go through the rest of the house soon.||He is old enough that I left him home when I had to be in court and go to work. Maybe everyone else won’t catch it – the power of positive thinking!|
|I had to go to court for our foreclosure conference. My ex did not show up so it is another thing that falls entirely on my shoulders – and they are tired.||The court referee and bank lawyer were both very nice about it. My shoulders may be tired, but they are strong and, like Moses, I have people to hold me up when I grow weary.|
|The boys were fooling around in their room and a pillow hit the light hanging from their ceiling. Glass shattered and sprayed everywhere – in the carpeting, bedding, toys, shoes, clothing. It has taken literally hours to clean.||The boys helped clean everything up. The really are some great kids even when they do active, boneheaded boy things. I have to take a deep breath and remember that! :S|
|Today is my husband’s girlfriend’s birthday and the boys will go and celebrate with them. I try not to judge her, but some days it’s hard.||This is a tough one…I guess the only positive I can come with here is that she is older than I am – lol|
|I was able to secure a room (With a SmartBoard!!!) in a neighboring town for my SAT class and hope to add more classes and have many students this spring.|
|I have five wonderful boys and an amazing God to love me.|
|I can still see the good triumph over the bad and know that God never gives us anything we cannot handle. I still have reasons to SMILE! J|
There are always more reasons to smile, than reasons to frown. Let the good triumph in your life! Thank you Jesus xoxo God Bless…
