Something to hold on to...

My life as it stands today...

Today I am home from school with the remnants of a migraine/viral thing. I am far too used to migraines, but they usually do not make my body feel like a truck hit it. This time I am thinking a bug entered my body and decided to play havoc with my bones, stomach, head, and whatever else it decided to get its grimy little self involved with. I am feeling a bit better as I type and did manage to just now get out of my pajamas for the first time in about 42 hours.

Oldest is away visiting youngest and then heading to the big city to visit with friends, his aunt and uncle, and hopefully looking for a real job. He has not been successful as of yet in his pursuit. Make that a matter of prayer if you will,

We are still pursuing the housing situation, and we have met with someone to further our understanding of how this all might come to be. An appointment with the owner is being arranged so we can ask some questions about the “bones” of the house. I am not holding my breath, but I will say the whole idea is becoming more appealing. There is much to do to our current home before we would be ready to sell though. I do not mean major renovations, but quite a few little jobs that unfortunately have been neglected and need our attention all at once. However, I am blessed to have a brother that is gifted in all things carpentry related, so that should help. We may also need to have a work party to finish all of the little tasks.

My girl group from church has been meeting again with a slightly different format and a few new members. I will say that I truly missed our evenings together and am glad to be meeting again with these incredible girls. Being a “mentor” to high school girls sure helps to keep you on your toes and makes you want to authentically “walk the walk” in front of them. We are planning to do our own book club of The Shack and learn through this beautiful work of fiction some real truths of what a loving God we have.

I will try to post more often, because honestly, it is a good release for me to process some of my thoughts and clarify others. I just get so distracted and busy being busy.

Just, as I have said before, don’t hold your breath.
