Are You Kidding Me?

10:50 AM Edit This 0 Comments »
Snow? Snow? Oh for crying out loud, you have got to be kidding me. Nearly the middle of March and I see snow. Doesn't mother nature understand that I am fed up with having sick kids? Clorox and I are waiting for some nice weather so I don't suffocate and poison everyone in the house. I need nice weather to open all the windows so I don't kill us all with bleach fumes.
I was so happy with those couple of warm, slightly sunny days. Even though I was sick, everything seemed so much better in the world.
Sometimes I feel like even a good smack might not be enough to right my senses. How on earth did I ever let my husband talk me into moving into the middle of the stupid woods? I must have been off in some la la land. Not only are we unable to grow anything but moss and dirt out here without sunlight, I can't even go for walks in my own woods 'cause people keep shooting out of season back there and I really don't want to hasten my exit out of this world.
Can ya tell I am struggling today? I am just bitter 'cause today is Neurology 6th month visit day and that is never a happy time for me. So, I decided, once I complained about the weather, I was gonna find some nice things to be happy about.
Here goes:
Robby is 18 and he was not expected to live even a fraction of that time.
Kye's grades are phenomenal and we get along fairly well overall.
Connor's grades are wonderful as well and he is about to have a bday soon.
My marriage is solid and I love him as much today as I did in the beginning. I honestly think more since he makes me madder now than he did then and I get over it faster.
We have a home to live in.
We have food to eat.
We have transportation.
We have family.
We have friends.
We have each other.
We have JESUS!
Seems despite the sadness that this visit always brings me, all the wonderful things we have should outweigh the negative.
I think sometimes I just need to take the time to list just how blessed we really are to overcome the difficult stuff. And as I remind myself, the difficult stuff helps me appreciate all the fabulous and miraculous in our life.
So color me uplifted and smiling. :)
