Ok, you are going to listen to me rant for a minute. I just need to and then it will be over. The day started off fine, saw a beautiful sunrise this morning on the way to work and thanked God for his beauty. Work was work and I survived!! Then I had a doctor appt after work for my ever aching feet. The news was not what I wanted to hear!! They took some x-rays of my feet and confirmed I have plantar fasciitis and heel spurs on both feet. Ok, I knew I had plantar fasciitis for awhile but it would usually subside after a week or so. Not now, it has been here for over a month and I hurt and I hobble, it isn't fun. Then I am given a referral to the podiatrist, where he will probably fit me for orthotics. These could run me anywhere from $250 to $400, oh and the insurance doesn't cover that!! (Great, why do I pay insurance premiums if they don't cover anything, just a question??) So, I leave a little miffed and deflated. I get home to my four kids and the babysitter. But, before I enter the home the neighbor across the street tells me that a boy down the street was shooting bebe's at my cat and he called the police. Oh, great. Where is my cat? Is it dead? One more thing to deal with. Hmmmp! Get in the house to my son sitting on the couch with a face that you know something is wrong. The babysitter told him not to be in the street and he did anyway!! Moving on, I start dinner. All the while, 2 of the 4 kids are crying, one is hungry and the other is teething. I am starting to lose it at this point and my head is throbbing. I call my husband to tell him about the cat, while he is tutoring high schoolers and I begin to cry!! I am sick of finances, neighbors, ailments, LIFE!! Then I see the neighbor girls leaving Abbi (my 9 yr old daughter) to go play somewhere else that I don't allow her to play, so now she is upset. There is one girl down the street that knows Abbi can not play at her house because I can not see her from our house. This little girl will come and play and then take all the kids to her house to play leaving Abbi behind, this upsets my daughter and me!!
Whew! That was long, sorry about that!! Anyway, my husband comes home to comfort me and help for a few. He has a young men's ministry on Monday nights, so he leaves tutoring, comes home and is back at church. His hug and kisses really helped. All the while, he is hugging me and I began to cry, my daughter Abbi sums it all up! She says, " God will provide, you must trust in him!!". Then my hubbs reminds me of the saying I put on the dry erase board that I need to put back up, "Worry Ends, Where Faith Begins!!". Enough said. My daughter is making chocolate chip cookies, and I am drinking my Diet Coke and two Excedrin Migraine have been ingested. Thanks for listening. Have a great day :)
Abbi my voice of reason. Love you Abbs!
