This is a great picture that captures our week so far.  Since it was raining Monday night, we played a fun game of Scrabble for our weekly date night.  I love Scrabble, but Tom doesn’t, and he won’t usually play with me because of my close relationship with W.O.R.D.S.  The most amazing part is that this date night was Tom’s idea not mine!  (Great job, Babe!)

In addition, we have been busy helping my mom get her records in order to meet with her CPA this week.  We just got home from her house a few minutes ago after spending most of the day babysitting for my daughter who is moving away in 4 weeks (something I still can’t think of without tears).  She was in desperate need of time to pack without her two children underfoot.

Needless to say I have been feeling a whole spectrum of emotions.  God is helping me face each day and not borrow tomorrow’s trouble, but it’s not easy.

So, playing a game was exactly what I needed to get my mind off of life for a few minutes and simply enjoy spelling a high-scoring word, while sitting across the table from my opponent and best friend in this life.

I spent today crunching numbers, holding toddlers, picking dandelions, making dinner, driving my mom to the doctor and talking with CPA’s.  This is my life; I am caught in the middle – caring for four generations.  But even in the tiredness and emotions I know that I know that this is what God has called me to do.  He will help me tomorrow as He has helped me today.

Taxing?  Y.E.S.  And that word in Scrabble would be worth 14 points all by itself. Imagine what it will be worth in eternity?

  1. Your words are very encouraging today as I find myself weary from similar callings, even though I wouldn’t change my situation for anything. Thanks!
