Complain-a-thon


Do you ever have those times in your life where you feel like your trying to walk waist deep though almost dried concrete! It seems if something can go wrong it is! First the transmission in our car died and had to be rebuilt. Our truck was towed over the holiday weekend and we couldn't get it out for 3 days but of course had to pay the impound fees. Then John and I both got food poisoning so bad that we literally laid around for 3 days not able to care for our kids. The house is obviously not in great condition with 2 adults out of commission and 2 kids running wild. Went to take pictures at the lot and our camera is broken (still in warranty though so we are counting our blessings!) I could go on and on but I wont bore you with the rest of our troubles. I guess at this point all you can do is smile and laugh and hope that Heavenly Father thinks your getting the humility lesson and decides to ease the fire a little bit. I guess that's life! On a happier note we got to see Brian and Kate yesterday and it was great! We love our family and wish we were all just a little closer. We don't realize just how lucky we are until we have a couple weeks like this!

When it rains it pours...sorry to hear it's pouring out there. Very fitting picture though.

Aw, life, it happens to everyone at some time or another. Do you remember when I had 9 major appliances go out at the same time here in this house? I thought I was going to go crazy. I can look back and see many times when it 'rained it poured'. But I can honestly say that if you 'endure to the end' like the scriptures say, the reward - even here on earth is so exquisit that words can't even describe it. Hope this comment helps you to hang on. Love, Mom
