Chasing Contentment

Wednesday, April 12

I sometimes feel like I'm doing all I can to hold things together, but my life keeps bursting those strained seams. Eliza's home sick today, and we leave for Florida on Friday. Griff's on a field trip today. For the mother of a very allergic child, field trips are the ultimate test of my belief that God can and will protect my child because Griff was first God's child.

And so for today, I'm trusting for Griff and I'm shoving Motrin down Eliza all I can. I need to pick up the house to show it tonight and begin packing. Lovely.

While I'm in a lousy mood, I'll quit whining and instead point everyone to today's Carnival about Aging Gracefully.
