I am so glad it’s Friday and my 4 day weekend. We also get a day off from homeschooling on Monday for the holiday.
I wanted to share here how God changed an attitude in me. I know it’s only been 15 days into the new year, but I prayed that God would change my attitude regarding laundry. Well, so far, He has. I actually can’t wait until Friday’s to get started on the laundry. And because I”m keeping up with it so well, I usually only have 3-4 loads for the entire weekend. EASY! I can’t tell you the feeling of knowing my laundry is caught up and there’s not Mt. Rushmore in the garage. I guess after having such a hard year last year with my heart condition and breaking my ankle, things did get a little behind. Rich did so much but when you are running an entire household on your own, it’s virtually impossible to keep everything up.
I asked my class yesterday, “Can you believe that January is 1/2 over?” We all just sat there in awe! It just can’t be! But it is. That just makes me realize that we HAVE to make the most of each day and really soak in what the Lord has for us that day. If we don’t, we miss out. One of the things I really want to concentrate on this year is my friendships with others. I know last year was not the best for me and I probably didn’t feed and water some friendships like I should have. But what I’m finding, is that those friends that stuck with me all the way until now, are the friends I want in my life forever. Those are the ones that don’t let petty things get in the way of how they feel about you and their relationship with you. They are the ones that WANT to work things out, aren’t afraid to tell you the truth, and in the end are still there, emailing you everyday, texting you, and well, genuinelly wanting to know how you are doing. Those friends never gave up on me when I couldn’t think about anything or anyone else in my life except my heart issues. To THEM….I appreciate you! I love you and you know who you are! My prayer is that as I heal that I will be the one to spoil you, love on you, and nuture the friendship we have. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me ENDURE!
PS: Prayers and thoughts go out to the Haitian people and the tragedy they are going through! 🙁
