Sometimes we feel stuck in life.
And we wish we could just pout about it.
Sometimes we feel like we are carried by others and are dragged along
down paths we don't want to take.
Or aren't ready to take yet.
Good or bad.
And we wish we could just cry about it.
That's the way I've been feeling lately.
So grateful for all the wonderful opportunities that have come my way.
But there are situations that are dragging me along.
Dragging me down.
Pulling me in every direction.
I feel I have to touch absolutely everything.
Or all the good will go away.
I wind up half-assing a lot of it just to get it done.
And I'm not a half-asser.
I'm a whole-asser.
I want to cross my arms
dig in my heels and say
But the good news is this:
This too shall pass.
This chapter in my life.
In the life of my family.
This shall pass.
I know this because I have faith.
I have faith that God knows the desires of my heart.
He knows what is best for my family.
even though I can't really see why,
I'm exactly where I need to be.
But let me be the first to tell you.
I'm ready for it to pass.
I'm ready for calm to settle in my heart.
I'm ready for the headaches and chest pains to cease.
I'm ready to feel like I've got a grip on my own life again.
I'm ready to be in a situation where I look over at Matt
and we both just smile and nod our heads because we know that that moment is so so good.
Know this: When you are three and you are grumpy and pouty there are
two things that will make it all better.
A Mister Machine on a hot day.
A monkey under a sheet, eating a cucumber.
