It's been one of those days. We've all had them. It started off as a decent sunshiny day and morphed into something else.
Let's just say I felt the need to text a friend for a boost. My foot went through my porch (because it's rotten and needs to be replaced...I was really thinking, until said foot went through, that it just needed to be repainted...sigh). While doing the laundry, I found my son's blessed magnet cross in the dryer...in pieces. I took the children to a Catholic school to check it out (I felt like a total failure when I left). And, I still feel like we are in limbo with the fostering thing. You know there is really no reason to go on at this point. It was one of those days.
I felt overwhelmed and alone by the end of the day. As I sit here fighting the tears, I feel a bit stressed and I'm trying to remember that I should be giving this up, right??
Then, I sit and think about all of the people who don't have a porch to put their foot through. They don't have a laundry machine that works to do the laundry...or they don't have enough clothes to wash. What about those who don't have the chance to be home with their children and watch them learn? And, what about those foster children who feel lost and alone??
Oh, that's right. I'm lucky. I'm blessed. I'm not alone.
So, as I ride along in my boat in the big ocean we call life. May God be my captain and may I no longer float along, but ride with the wind in my hair and the sun in my face (even if it burns) because He has a plan for me!!
Peace and happiness,
