Life lesson (one that I should have mastered by now)

It is almost Summer

that can't be right --
did we even celebrate Christmas yet??

Ever have those moments where you sit back
and realize MONTHS have just flown by
That was me today - Sitting outside enjoying
the lovely weather and then it hit me --

I only have 3 weeks of work left -- OMgoodness
Whatever shall I do -- Where did the time go

You would think I would have gotten a hint when
(for the 3rd time this week) one of my bosses asked
"Have you found out anything yet?" refering to our
possible move - I just smiled and so "No we haven't made
any decisions yet" all the while thinking -- Man WHAT is UP
why do they keep asking -- I will surely tell them as
soon as I find out something --

Then I realized THEY haven't had us sign our contracts for the
upcoming year yet - they have been trying to politely ask if I would
be there next year or not --

insert the part where i feel like a total BOOB

then that realization gets the ball rolling

-- then insues the sudden sense of ERGENCY to
find out - WHAT THE HECK we are doing -- going
to do

So for a good three hours today I was consumed
with anxiety - doubt - confusion -

all to find out ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

"And which of you by being anxious can add a single
cubit to his life's span?" Matthew 6:27

"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness;
and all these things whall be added to you. Therefore
do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will
care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6:33-34

Seriously -- this should be tattoed on my hand as a reminder
(those of you who know me well know that i constantly write
notes to myself on my hand - which I might add drives my
husband INSANE)

answered PRAYERS

Isn't it GREAT when God answers our PRAYERS

Last night I was working on this weeks Preschool stuff

and I was so tired and overwhelmed with all that is/was on

my plate - I had been telling Heath that there really wasn't

anything that I could say NO to -- It all had to be done - and

it all HAS to be DONE by TODAY -- SCARY --




Preschool Stuff

Challenge for TSR

tons of Forms and stuff for FOSTER CARE


make Dentist appointments (these are WAY overdue)

take ebay pictures

then all of a sudden I just decided to pray and I asked God to bring Linda

back soon -- I was thinking maybe after this week ????


I get a call this morning from the Asst. Director saying that

Linda is coming back tomorrow -- YEAH!!!!!

so really it didn't lighten my workload for yesterday or today

but it was some light at the end of the tunnel that i desperately needed :D

Here is a layout I did a couple of weeks ago for a challenge on TSR

inspiration for the tree came from this card

Continued BUSY - NESS

So much going on in our Family right now -

We are Taking classes to become FOSTER PARENTS
Heath has a few Job opportunities that could possibly move our family OUT OF STATE
I am planning a joint BIRTHDAY PARTY for the kids
and I am still taking care of the PRESCHOOL CLASS

THAT ALL feels like a LOT right now -- but in the big scheme of things I know these things/decisions are TINY --

GOD has got everything UNDER CONTROL!!!
and I am trying to enjoy the ride
(sometimes with teeth clinched - but never the less - I am trying) ;)
