Over the years people have emailed me telling me how perfect my life seems to be...if only!
It isn't that bad things don't happen....I just don't post about it on my blog often. It feels weird to do that. Like airing dirty laundry.
But......there is a saying that bad things come in three's. If that is true, our family should be all caught up....for awhile....I mean....seriously.
First, we had a lightening storm two weeks ago. It blew up our computer (literally, it caught on FIRE...) and also blew up our daughter's Play Station 2 in the same strike. (The lightening ran down the outside internet connection into the house.)
Then last weekend our water heater broke and needs to be replaced.
Then to top THAT off, I found out Friday that I am out of a job next year....the school budget was slashed and my job of the last 4 years is gone.
This...after finding out last month that I needed a crown and Matt needs oral surgery. This after finding out both cars need MAJOR work.
Ok....so how many things IS THAT? 8, right? And not a one of them is an inexpensive fix.
So I cried Friday night. I really needed it.
And this isn't just now happening. Stuff like this has been happening since moving here in '07. It was like we fell into a bad dream or are cursed. I mean it, really. As soon as we moved here, crap started happening and hasn't stopped yet. (maybe its the house?)
So now that I wrote this, it feels wrong, like I'm a whiny
baby...because so many other people have it so much worse. We seriously
have SO many blessings and I am so appreciative of that fact. But I'm leaving it here...because even though
we ARE blessed, bad things do happen and I'm just trying to get through
it, just like everyone else.
I keep telling myself that God has a plan and that everything will be okay. Oh, and to breathe. Yea....that helps too.
