Ok, in the last post I was all about all the amazing deals I got. The greatness of my family. Well....tonight I had a minor set back.
Let me start with my husband going off to Vegas yesterday with his buddy. Now he went with my full blessing. I can't get away right now and Tom really needs a break. He is having a great time and I am so happy.
This evening between shuttling kids, doing homework, preparing a prayer for tonights religious ed class I decided to try and wash a few dishes. NO....Hot....WATER. I call Tom who tells me to call his brother. Brother-in-Law (BIL) to the rescue. He helped get me all set up. I am so happy. And I am also very proud of myself for taking it in stride. We all have pot holes in our lives. It's how we deal with them. Now I drive the road of life at about 100mph sometimes. So when I hit one of these potholes I can often tend to treat it like a major bridge being out. I am trying to learn to take the jolt, deal with the neck and perhaps back pain and carry on. Look back at the hole. Is it the size of a baseball and I have turned it into a crater? Don't let the potholes in your life get you down. Don't drive a little coupe with wimpy tires. Outfit yourself with a God Mobil. Throw some big honking 4x4 tires on that thing and hit the road. A positive attitude and a relationship with your Creator can help so much.
Where did that come from? I don't know. Just felt like getting it out there and kind of liked the metaphor.
I'm tired and looking forward to a hot bath. Catch ya' later.
