when it rains, it pours.....

ya know that saying- and it's usually said when a string of bad things are happening. so what do we say when things are going right? i know for a fact that i'm not perfect, my life is not perfect. but i know that instead of listing the imperfections of myself and the way life deals me the cards- i really should be looking for the wondrous things that somehow go right! - even when i am involved, lol!
yes, i'd love a new car, nicer things, manicures(lol), but that would mean i'd have to work outside of my home to afford it--- goodness knows i work here enough...but then i'd be missing time with my kids. so yes, for now (i will be getting a job again) i will continue to remember how blessed i am to have these three kids i chase around and laugh with - sometimes argue with too- and a caring husband to cook for each night. i know how long and hard your days are sweetie- you are loved! everything in the house stops as soon as he walks in the door at 6pm during the week and he braces himself for the three wild things that come up to hug on him. i wouldn't trade that picture in my head for the world.
so i leave you with this- i will in 2009- pray more, complain less. and if home is where your story begins...i want these chapters in my babies lives to be filled with love, hugs, and time together.
