So after I read Jenn’s blog I guess I must give an update on life. But phew, thinking about all to update is just tiring. We had lots go on in the area of housing. We had been sick for a few months straight, waking up with junk in our throats and I coughed up blood, and we both felt sick to our stomachs. Joseph and Scarlet had skin rashes.A few weeks ago we found mold in our basement and bathroom. It ended up that all of those are symptoms of toxic mold. Long story short, I am now the proud renter of a third story apartment.
At the moment, we are in the middle of getting stuff from there to here. In the midst of it all, I have no idea where my camera is. So, there will be no pictures until it is found. That makes me not want to blog at all. What fun is blogging without pictures. Here how about a word picture, you must imagine it…
I’m sitting typing on my husby’s new hot Mac computer next to my fireplace that is keeping me warm in my sweet new home covered with white walls. Both babes are asleep. Soon, Joseph will be home expecting dinner. But for now, it is nice and quiet. Very near to where I sit are piles and piles of laundry, lots of boxes, and Scarlet’s toys strung all over the place.
There you go, a whole lot more info than you would get in one picture. But it works.
There has been SO much go on besides just moving. I feel like I have been taken and drug through the dirt. Most of it has turned out positive. So, I have nothing to complain about. I am so thankful for so many things. My new home, my sweet little family, friends that care enough to put up with us in our weak moments, family that always supports us any way they can (even when we get ourselves in rough places), bosses that are willing to stick with us through anything, and the sweet peace of knowing that where we’re headed and where we are going is exactly where God has us. If we stay close to Him there is nothing that can push us down. But to be really honest, in all these positive outcomes there has been a process, and it is the process that has totally wiped me out. I would love to sit and stare at the wall for hours (I used to make fun of my mom for saying things like that, but these days it sounds so relaxing) or just do nothing at all. Just for a little bit. But life does not give the option. So, instead I will be spending the few minutes I have of each day remembering the strength God put inside of me to conquer anything, to overcome all, and have the experience to someday help someone else along.
Just a piece of my heart for the day.
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
