wishing

I wish this were a happy post with lovely girls in Easter dresses. I wish I was further than the "cutting" stage of them. I wish a warm cat were in my lap. I wish he would ever be again. I wish he hadn't been in the street. I wish I didnt feel guilty keeping a cat indoors all the time. I wish it didn't hurt so bad to lose him. I wish a vase of flowers didn't fall on the laptop. I wish I didn't get mad at my 3 year old for it.

But overall I am glad. I am glad to have a healthy, safe, loving family. I am glad I only lost 3 months of pictures on the computer. I am glad for amazing friends who let me borrow their computer, their ears, and cheered me up. I am glad I sold so much on etsy so I can afford a new computer. I am glad I had and loved our wonderful cat. I am glad I have a roof over my head, food in my tummy, and a warm bed to sleep in. I have more than many others...and though I wish things were different sometimes, God is good. Lent is closing in. Easter will be here soon.

Unfortunately it is very difficult to type on our borrowed computer... so until we order and recieve a new laptop... I may not be around much. I wish you all a reflective close of lent, some time for quiet and peace and some moments to count your blessings.

"The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeks Him." Lamentations 3:25

Thanks for the prayers and hugs. It was a rough week but we do have a new computer (which was long overdue) and while we still miss our most wonderful cat...my children and family are safe and well! Thanks for being there. :)
