Only You can keep us sane in this tiny house. Please help us get back into our home!
1/11 Found out good friend from college has cancer. She's only a few years older than me and she has young kids. This isn't fair. At. All.
So, now you know. Roller Coaster year. Fun times.
I know God provides. I know He alone is my strength. My Peace lies in my relationship with Him. Not my house. Not where my kids go to school. Not even my husband's presence. That last one is hard for me to write.
Five more days of January. February is going to be SOOO much better than January, right??? Ha!
