About Me

My photo
Life is an adventure. Sometimes I yearn for boredom, yet it never comes. This is an account of my struggles & triumphs- my struggle to know God & understand the "why" behind it all. "Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain" This is just me - learning to dance - sometimes gracefully, but most the time - stepping on my 2 left feet..

New Attitude!

Okay Time for a new attitude. My husband calls me an incurable optimist. I haven't been very optimistic the last few days. Time to get my humor back. This trip has been nearly impossible so far -- if it can go wrong -- it has. So I have decided that I have officially reached the valley -- time to start climbing the mountain. " Things can only go up from here." (I know - I'm so cheesy :) )

1.) Today we will make a schedule. My kids love structure (they actually have been asking for the schedule) - things go much smoother when the kids know what to expect.

2.) I will laugh at myself today -- things are really not that bad -- I will see the humor in the situation.

3.) I will remind myself just who is really in control. God worked everything out so quickly and smoothly for us to come up here -- surely He can handle a little thing like a hotel.

4.) I will remember to be grateful for the things that I have instead of looking at the things I want.

5.) I will remind myself that my kids are just kids and they react to my stress.

6.) We have family therapy tonight - I will decide before the fact -- Even if my little one is not doing what he is supposed to do, this therapy will work -- it just takes time.

This week is going to be better. I can't wait to see what God has in store for us.

Dancing in anticipation,
