World Spins Madly On
A coworker sent this out today, and I thought it was beautiful. I am familiar with the emotions expressed in the animation, yet for now I am not longing for what I cannot have. I'm trying to face forward with confident anticipation, although to be honest, it takes a lot of mental and spiritual work to persist.
In other words, I'm doing OK today in case you are wondering. Yesterday I felt empowered to bring on a shift in my attitude, so I did. I had a lovely time with my son last night. It was sweet. I have no uncertainty about my abilities to be a loving and good mother to my son. As well, I cherish my time with him. He will be with his dad tonight, and that is difficult. Difficult to come home to, difficult to wake up without. I have a work commitment to keep me busy this evening, and the Geek Squad is coming over in the morning to add some yellow back into our television. It's no fun watching the Packers in pink and green.
As luck would have it this morning, we had a flat tire on the way to daycare. Matt was out of town and would not be able to help, but God (who knew) had His hand in the matter as my tire went out about 1 block away from Oliver's baby sitter's home. We have become somewhat close with that family; I called, and we drove into their driveway. Soon the tow truck came and the tire was changed, and we were on our way after a really lovely visit. I felt uplifted and ready for the rest of the day.
There's a lot of snow on the ground here, and I'm hoping for the temperatures to be tolerable so that we can build Frosty on our front lawn this weekend. I'll try to take some photos.
I'm at a turning point right now therefor if you could keep me in your prayers so that I can become empowered to live life fully and with faith that everything will be OK in the end, that would be wonderful. See you soon...
God always gives you what you need when you need it. Thanks Rega for that. :)
