I'm grumbly

Chris found more mold today. This time behind the bathroom sink.



I'm still at my parents' house.

Ethan wanted to know what was wrong with me this morning. I explained to all the kids that mama is feeling a little sad this morning. Sad that we aren't home. Sad that when we do get to go home, that home will be VERRRRY messy. Sad that we don't know how long it will be. Sad that daddy is working very hard and we can't help him., sad that all of our savings are going toward mold and termites.

And then I heard myself.

I had to apologize to the kids, do some repenting, and explain that mama's attitude stinks. I need to stop thinking about how sad I feel and think about how thankful I am that we have a daddy that CAN work hard, thankful there is a house to work on, thankful for parents that so generously let us crash their house, and thankful we had the savings in the first place.

Nothing like God holding a mirror up in front of your face, huh?

Oh, but such a pretty flower in that picture!;o) Sorry about your mold problems. That really stinks. I'm glad you're trying to remember all that you do have to be thankful for, though. Sometimes it just ain't easy, even if the blessings do outnumber the difficulties. I'm praying you'll get a handle on this situation quickly so you can be back home with your hubby. Hang in there!
