This Thing Called Life

Ever feel like you are drowning?  Like you just can't get your head above the water?  That is how I feel right now.  Dragon's job ends months before we expected it to.  He will still get his pay check for a few months after that.  For that I am grateful.  The news today just made it real all over again.  It took my breath away.

I was treading water.


Then some sorry SOB came along and pushed my head under again.


I am not in this alone.

God has a plan for us.  He hasn't shared the news with me yet but I know he has it all figured out.

I am prepared for yet another sleepless night.  I'll close my eyes and pray the night away.  If I can't sleep, I can't think of a better way to spend the time.

On a better note.  My new outfit is coming right along.  Everybody at my house is sick.  Yep, me too.  I haven't felt like sewing until today.  I finished the sides of the long shirt and tried it on.  LOVE it.  Now to finish the neck edge, do the buttons and hem the bottom and the sleeves.


  1. Oh you're having such a rough time just now DR. It can only get better. I'm pleased that you're pleased :) with your creation :)

  2. Sorry to hear about Dragon's job and the long hard sickly week. God does know what is to happen rest in that and try to sleep. We've been there and it's alarmingly worrisome. I understand.

  3. Dee, I do have something to smile about. :)

    Susie, I am trying to stay positive and look at all the blessings we have. Some days that is easier said than done.

  4. Oh do I agree with you on this one. Hang in there and keep looking for the positives, no matter how hard it is to do somtimes.

  5. What upsetting news. And you all being sick certainly doesn't help matters. It's times like this that we really need to frog (that's fully rely on God). He does indeed have a plan, so often we're just on a need to know basis and even though we feel we need to know at all times, He will clue us in when the timing is right. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Oh, and congrats on your new outfit. ;)

  6. ((hugs)) Dragon's Rose.

  7. Hang in there! I'm sending hugs too! Sara

  8. Thank you for the hugs. I'm still hanging on. Treading water again.
