Good morning Xangaland!
A little different today. I feel like I must explain….Song of the day? These Old Bones by Dolly Pardon. Totally not with the spirit of today’s post but honestly the song is stuck in my head and who doesn’t need a laugh once in a while? Enjoy.
I am in the strangest mood today. I feel so introspective… My brain just won’t stay still but at the same time I have nothing at all to say. I’ve been thinking a lot about the following. (I’m making a list to get my thoughts in order. lol)
1) My grandpa (the one year anniversary of him being gone is next month, a month from today actually)
2) Moving (there are days I want to leave so bad I can taste it but most days I can’t stand the thought of leaving.)
3) The holidays (they are coming up so fast and I don’t feel at all prepared but at the same time I feel like I HAVE to make this year wonderful because it may be my last living here…)
4) The fact that my 25th birthday is tomorrow… (I know this should be all happy but to be honest I am feeling kind of down…. I can remember when I turned 22, I was having so much trouble because it had been almost two years since Ryan and I had been trying to have a baby and my mom tried to encourage me by telling me that both her and my grandma found out they were pregnant shortly after their 23rd birthday.. Turning 25 is for some reason just depressing for me. I know I’m young but some of the ‘young’ goes out of you when you have been trying for almost five years.)
So today I’m feeling very sullen and very quiet… I would love to say more but really I’ve got nothing.
So with that…..
I have a lot of things to catch up on for the day! I am making half of the Christmas gifts for this year so I have a ton of projects. I’m coming around to visit and then I’m off.
Hope you enjoyed my insane song! LOL
Okay I visited! See you all later.
So them I’m going through old email’s and I find this one from my dad.
A daughter is telling her Mother how everything is going wrong .
She’s failing algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.
Meanwhile her Mother is baking a cake and asks if her daughter would like a snack, the daughter says, “Absolutely Mom, I love your cake”
“Here, have some cooking oil,” her Mother offers.
“Yuck” says daughter.
“How about a couple raw eggs?”
“Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?”
“Mom, those are all yucky!”
The mother replies: “Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!
God works the same. Many times we wonder why He would let us go through such bad and difficult times. But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work for good!
We just have to trust Him and, eventually they will make something wonderful!
