In the last six weeks since we've moved, my son has broken his leg, my cat ran away, my car has been deemed to be on its last wheel and we need to find a new one (which means taking on a monthly car payment just when we were starting to get ahead a little bit). My chocolate lab has had chronic diarrhea (I think it's just nerves from moving from the only house he's ever known since we brought him home 10 years ago) and my five year old has been having a rough go of it not having any girlfriends to call for a playdate yet. There's a saying "If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." I'm going to officially change that to "If a five year old ain't happy, ain't NOBODY happy" because the stress level has been vastly multiplied by this. Ugghh!!!
Miss Megan and I did have a night to ourselves last night. I took her to see a local production of The Nutcracker. It was called "The Nutcracker - Short and Sweet" and was geared for younger kids. It was an hour long and was pretty much perfect. She started to squirm in her seat at about the 45 minute mark and said she was bored. Up until then, she was mesmerized. : )
As I made my coffee this morning, I looked out the window at the beautiful day we've been given and I made the conscious decision to have a good day. I know things will work themselves out. They always do. The Universe/God is always so good to us and magic always happens for us. I will never get these days back again. I am stressed but, more than that, I am blessed.
This always makes me feel better . . .
Have a very happy Sunday and a peaceful week ahead ~ Wendy
