Weeks Learnings

This week has seemed like a long one. Monday seemed to drag on forever as we were getting ready to go and visit my Mom and Dad. Time didn’t seem to move fast enough for me till I was on the road. It seemed like in no time that we were there at their house. Our stay seem short lived, but of course it is never long enough. One day we might live around the corner from them but for now over 300 miles seperate us.

But here is what I learned:

Lesson 1: Never tell ANYONE about going anywhere unless you are willing to take them along too. While you are at it make sure that you mention at least and hour or 2 later then what you anticipate leaving. This way they aren’t sitting around waiting for things to happen.

Lesson 2: It is HOT in Nashville. Not just a little but stinkin’ hot. Even though we were in the pool most of the day it was still hot outside. Even if there is little humidity and it is suppose to be 90 it is HOT!

Lesson 3: Enjoy the love of family around. You never know how long you will get to enjoy it. Despite being frustrated or upset LOVE always.

Lesson 4: God protects you all the time! We literally pulled in the driveway and put the car in park before a HUGE storm rolled through. We lost power till noon yesterday.

Lesson 5: When sleeping in the basement and hearing water running always tell the owner of the house. Yep 2″ of water in my basement while someon was sleeping down there. Not sure why they didn’t hear the water but awoke in the morning to be surround by water.

Lesson 6: Despite the damage it is just stuff. Not sure how much we lost yet in the basement but knowing that it is just stuff (probably stuff we needed to get rid of even) and no one was hurt is priceless. Stuff is replaceable, life is not.

Lesson 7: Satan, no matter what you do you will not prevent God’s will. You may delay it or push it back or even contribute to it but you will NEVER prevent it! So get back! Actually you may have improved that atmosphere, so HA!

Lesson 8: Sleep is over rated. Okay so I haven’t gotten too much but enough to get by but sometime in the near future I will get some and hopefully awake feeling rested.

No matter what happens, I love my family. Thank you Christopher for being supportive through the week. I know that you have gotten just as much sleep as I have and have carried on.  Thanks for thinking on your feet and for lovin on your children despite their attitudes. I couldn’t have picked a better husband. I love you more everyday and in events like this week feel our relationship deepening. Always remember that no matter what happens that I am your wife for life. Thanks again for just being you.

To my readers, this week was mostly good but will continue to be long as we clean up the mess from the flooded basement. Please be patient as there won’t be many post due to clean up. Hopefully I will be able to sit down soon and post pictures from our trip to my parents. Thank you all so much for reading.
