I find that Life is a process of continually trying to Grow. There are two types of people that I see in society. There are those that are continually open to growth and those that have arrived.
Those that have arrived are the anoying ones as they think there at a level of not needing growth.
If your open to growing, you are admitting to not knowing everything.
I am overwhelmed with trying to keep up with life. there are so many things I want to accomplish and do, my brain is two miles ahead of my time-frame and finances. I don’t want to rush my kids to grow up and leave home, but I also get frusterated that in life you never have the things you want when you think you need them. I dream of having a Pole Barn. WHAT? kinda wierd dream to have is what some think. But I think of having the large space to do projects, to gather with friends and family. A place that I can unload all the projects that I have in my house and garage and put them in a spot that just makes since. Then I can also open up the house and garage for general living and not feel so tight. WOW, I all of a sudden feel so american!
Another thing on my mind is dealing with family and friends. ..
Mike Meyer, a close friend of mine, and also a person I called my Dad, passed away early this week. Not sure of his age, assuming that it is arround sixty. I want to be there for friends or as I call them, “family”, but not sure how to help. Why is life so hard sometimes? I wish that things would just make since.
A new can of worms…
Monday is the day that I am going to revisit my Grandpa’s shop after six years of giving things to God. Prayers of dealing with family, patience and the ability to not get stuck on the worldly possessions. I ultimately miss my Grandpa and would give anything for another day to hang out with him. I pray that he made it into eternity with Jesus.
On the Lighter side of life, I am finding that we own a Zoo. I realized the other day that our family includes…
Chris & Rachel
Diana & Zebedee
Suzy & Dakota, the dogs
Autumn, the guinea pig
Rose, the rat
Rascal & Moe, the boy’s, “Rats”
Chatters & Snowflake, the mice
Jet, the beta
Joy, the inside dove
the other 8 doves outside
Stripe and Mr Rooster, “take a Guess”
Tiger & Momma Kitty
the 4 Kids, Cats
I believe that that is all the family, and yes, they are all family. Yesterday Joy took a bath in Jet’s aquarium, Suzy is now in the house and Tiger is taking a nap in the hallway, He doesn’t know that he is heading outside very soon!
Life is crazy, I am Crazy, and the world has gone Crazy!
