This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Grains of Gratitude
I have no idea how other families do it. I know that some families have Dad traveling for work all week, every week and Mom holds down the fort and they seem to survive just fine. That would be you, Christine!! I know you are often the first watch and with more kiddos than me. Send me your secret!
Some families deal with even more. Our military men and women are oceans away and their loved ones keep it together for truly long stretches. I am so grateful for them. I have so much respect for what they all do.
So here I am pouting that my husband will be on the road again tomorrow and I was blessed to have him at least for the weekend. It just wasn't long enough. We've done this before and I am sure we'll do it again. Oh wait!! We are!! Phhhhhbbbbbbbbttttt! I am really not in the mood to put my big girl panties on and be a grown-up. But I guess this isn't going to be about what I'm in the mood for, huh?
I am grateful I have a car that needs inspected and tagged this week. I am grateful the boys will start religion class this week--they will be so happy to see their wonderful teachers again & their friends. I am grateful for the little girls who ride with us during the week. They have provided us with a new dynamic for conversation. Girls totally put a new spin on our life. The boys have auditions this week for Nutcracker and Roo is taking an extra class. Guess once I hit the ground tomorrow I'm going to be too busy to pout a whole lot.
There's a lot to be grateful for & a whole lot to pray for. Maybe I can face the week after all. I'm grateful for the chance to vent a little. Movin' on!!
What are you grateful for?
