I’m a swirly-brained kind of girl. You’d be hard-pressed to catch me at a time when there’s not 5 or 65 different things all running around in my head like banshees.
Mostly I don’t mind it. It keeps things interesting.
(and holy cow, if I haven’t gotten interrupted 17 times already, just two sentences into this post!)
So, all those awesome people who can write amazing blog posts on important topics and be eloquent about issues and be effective ambassadors for the Kingdom and all that?
I’m so not in that place right now.
Here’s an update: we’re doing well. And by “well,” I mean that our attitudes are surprisingly (and excitingly!) good, good, good for our current circumstances. On paper, things might look dismal, but WE KNOW BETTER BY NOW. God’s got this. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. He’s not caught off guard or unprepared for negative checking accounts or borrowing change from your kiddos for gas or having to finally give up health insurance because the premiums became impossible to pay.
We see that light at the end of the proverbial subway. FREEDOM TRAIN’S A’ COMIN’!!!
Gabe is feeling good and learning how to get through the anxiety when it comes. He’s able to work and is diligently completing projects bit by bit.
We’re getting a tax return for the first time in forever. The one good thing about how hard last year was.
And every single day, things are clicking. Ahh, I see why we had to go through that. And that. And that. Ahhhh, I see why I might need that coping skill. And that one. Ahhhhhh, I see how this certain thing helps me empathize with people in this certain situation. And that one. Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh!!
And I had so much else I wanted to share (some book stuff, some projects I’m working on, heroes I’ve met recently), but now I’m all worn out. Another time.
Now, how about YOU? I miss you!!
So, tell me: What’s the single most pressing thing in your life right now (good, bad, or freakishly ugly)?
