I was perusing through WordPress, and found something called a Daily Prompt. It is blog motivation for those like me who at times need some ideas.
Here is the Daily Prompt for today….
Pick a random word and do Google image search on it. Check out the eleventh picture it brings up. Write about whatever that image brings to mind.
My word was love, and here is the image below.
I am loved by many, but most importantly I am loved by God.
The past few weeks have been a tad surreal to say the least. My husband lost his job, and I lost a part of my life that I absolutely loved. A part I never thought I would ever get to experience. I got to be a stay at home mom, and only had to work part time. Now, I am the full-time employee of the house. I just applied for a second job to keep some extra money coming in, because thanks to the lovely new health care laws, overtime has become a dirty word, even in the midst of nursing shortages.
I started wondering if I got a little too comfortable with the way things had become. Did I stop listening?
These past few weeks have been very hard on my marriage. I am not the easiest person to get along with, and when stressed, it is ten fold. I have expectations. I run this house hold, and find it difficult to depend on others. Others being my husband. For the past 5 years, he has not had to be responsible for anything. He has taken on my role, and I his. I miss my girls, and I miss my old life.
Through it all though, the one constant has been my faith. Faith that something good will come from all this crap.
The bonus is I get to actually see Mr. Kell more, and so do his girls. He is making dinner, going to gymnastics and basketball, and even participating in cleaning the kitchen.
Maybe that is what all this is about?
A little reminder of who loves me and who is in control.
