Do you ever wonder why things go awry when you are getting ready to go on a trip? Like why in the world would the valve fail on your pipe behind the fridge, soaking into the wall, ruining the drywall and warping the wood floor on the opposite side - the day before you are leaving for a week? I like to think it is so we don't get too caught up in our plans that we forget real life. I am however, VERY thankful that we caught it before Norse left because I would have had to call a plumber since
I also wonder why my angelic child decides that this week he should amp up the whining, biting, hitting phase of being 2 - while I try to change the sheets EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING. since they are soaked with pee. It is probably so I remember to be thankful for the very man who gave me this precious boy.
Absence truly does make the heart grow fonder. I am already counting down the days until my hunter returns from the wilderness (with hopefully enough meat to fill our freezer). I am also feeling beyond grateful for the sweet friends that are helping me get through my CRAZY busy week and to that amazing grace Giver who is sustaining me daily.
How is your week going?
