I woke up mad. After the whole home warranty thing, and other stuff in my life (not to mention a 7 year old who’s turned insane). I had a dream that I went to work and it was crazy busy, but then I called and they put me on call.
Another day of staying home. I was just mad. As I opened my scriptures I really asked God to change my attitude. This week’s lesson was about how Nephi took trials vs how his brothers took trials. Nephi just went with the flow, and figured there was a purpose to everything. The brothers got mad, both at their own brother, but also at God.
And that was me, getting mad.
Booo…. I hate it when I’m exactly like Lamen and Lemuel…
We are going to be fine financially. The tax man will send a lovely check to our bank account next month, thanks, mostly, to the fact that like 80% of what we spent last year was tax deductible. Horray!
Anywho… today I feel like I have somehow come into my own. I recently organized the pantry… and I’m SO happy about it. I was literally excited to put food away. Just to fill in some empty spots. I kind of feel like I’ve been running around with my head cut-off without all my “systems” in place… but thanks to not working the past few weeks, I’ve been able to implement some systems. And, if you know me — you KNOW I love a good system. I’m even couponing again. I think I saved over 10 bucks today at the grocery store, but that’s a post for another day. So, today I’m looking for what I was meant to do.
Also, I was still a little bit mad, but I went down to our plants that are NOT coming up in the office and I found two sprouts. It’s amazing how much hope a seed can bring, am I right?
What were you meant to do today? Does life ever spoil your plans? Do you realize there was something else you were meant to do?
