When it rains...

It pours.
Today was one of those days for me. 

I hate to be a complainer, 
but today really stunk for several reasons that I won't go into here.

Then Michael told me his computer was officially dead.
That means we get to drop a couple of grand that we don't have on a new one soon.
And this makes my stomach hurt.
The one and ONLY down side to being a stay at home momma, is it definitely makes the finances a little more stressful.  I also tend to be the worrier type.  The two don't marry well.
Then I got a call from a mother of one of Anne's little friends from preschool asking for a playdate.  She's a mother of three with one having severe disabilities, and another with learning disabilities.

I immediately felt ashamed of my complaining.
ashamed of having felt like my day wasn't so great.
ashamed that I take so many things for granted.

I guess it just kind of put things in perspective for me.
Things can always be worse.  
There is probably a lesson or two to be learned.
I am blessed.
God is in control.

When I put things in perspective, I have absolutely nothing to worry about.
