When it Rains, it Pours
I don't want to start a post out negatively, but....For reasons beyond our control, we will not be going to Disney in January. I wanted to get that news out of the way before Thanksgiving, and so no one starts asking me if I'm excited about the Disney trip. But it's ok. Sometimes God just has a different plan than we do. Huge disappointments happen. But I'm trying not to let those thoughts creep in right before Thanksgiving. I mean, I've been a million times...and there are little kids everywhere who would give their right arm to go once. That's how I'm trying to think about it. But it's still hard. Anyway, I've been working on homework all weekend....literally. I still feel like I'm just taking one step forward, two steps back, but I'm at least trying. Why do teachers always do this? I guess it's just the way things are towards the end of the semester. I'll be spending my break working on schoolwork, but at least I'll be with my family. And I'm getting a Christmas tree on Tuesday :) So...in the midst of disappointment and frustration, and all the emotions that come along with something exciting being cancelled, I'm thankful. I really am. Satan will do anything to get us discouraged. So I'll just keep going. And I only have to go to class two days this week, and only work one day (tomorrow). I know I'll post closer to Thanksgiving, and I'll do my Thankful List. So until then, everyone have a good start of the week.
