yep, that sounds about right

By Moriah on April 30th, 2013

It’s the little things that wear me down. I find when something big happens, it’s so obviously out of my control that it’s relatively easy to depend on God and see his hand in things.

It’s the gallon of milk spilled under my fridge, or Adelaide busting her forehead, or Drew blasting the dining room window completely through (true story), or not paying enough attention to checking and throwing $100 down the proverbial toilet because apparently the overdraft-pull-from-savings suddenly isn’t working, or having to get a plumber because Ethan flushed my hand-lotion in the upstairs potty and we haven’t been able to use that bathroom for 3 weeks… and then yesterday I threw out my back.

I’ve been either laying on the couch or my bed for two days, or hobbling around when I have to and/or if something happens. (Like a broken glass or [a box of] spilled cheerios, or the water party Ethan and Ari threw when I was downstairs – all three from today.) My mom comes tomorrow and I’m dreading her seeing my house in such a state (hi, Mom!) but there’s only so much you can do with a broken vacuum and a bad back. And it’s too late to call in a cleaning lady.

Life, it goes on.

    I completely agree. It truly is the little things that put my faith to the test. Just this morning I lost it all over (literally) spilled milk.

    What a blessing it will be to have Mom for a while!

    I wouldn’t say Drew blasting through that window was a little thing. I witnessed that and am still in shock over it! Praying for you…..

    Feel your pain. Praying for you, Seems to me that Mom is going to be there just when you need her. Just keep clicking your heels together like Dorothy on the Wizard of Oz :)
