This past week has been filled with things that were totally out of my control. SATs for Abbie-which I personally think are useless and should not be mandatory-but they are for us right now. So off I went and did the right thing. All the while hating the time (with car time and actual test-taking time-about 18 hours) and money that was being put into something I did not think was good. Beyond my control.
I had to get our taxes in-very late for us. Again-beyond my control. We had to wait on some paperwork that I could do nothing about but wait. But they are done-and it was all beyond my control.
Oh me, I could go on and on, -Heritage Girl Paperwork (no kidding, I bet I spent 6 hours on it alone this past week), money worries, six year old boys who won't read, a house that needs attention, bills need to be paid, groceries need to be bought, oh my stinkin goodness-my ironing pile is huge. Our living room has turned into a unwilling family closet because I am trying to switch out our winter/summer clothes while still making sure everyone actually had something clean to wear each day. The painting still is not done and at this point I have learned to live with it, but it looks horrible and something needs to be done.
Just the normal whines and complaints of a mom I guess. But He cares. I don't understand it, but God cares. And all I can do is keep on loving Him, loving my family, and doing what I am called to do each day. And those things I think I have control over-I really don't. He does though.
