God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
So...this morning...as Doug is leaving for work...my eye spies a pudding/tapioca lid on the floor.
Which isn't too difficult...there is getting to be less and less in this home...like...we're almost to the point of switching residences because there are fewer and fewer things here...and tonight the computer and tv get moved over so...the couch will be next and our bed is coming up quick on the queue...we're about to be living elsewhere...
But I digress.
Back to the foil thing on the floor...
In my loving wifely way, I cannot pass on this opportunity to give him a little bit of grief...
Ok. I could pass on it, but I chose not to...
And I say, "Oh no...look! There's a pudding lid on the floor!"
He moves over and looks closer.
Mutters real soft, "Jaycey..."
More than four years since she has flown the nest.
A year since she's been here.
Darn near an entire country between us...and this talented daughter of mine is still isn't throwing her garbage away.
I'm a wife to Douglas...mom to Brittany, Kimberly and Jaycey...stepmom to Chris & Stephanie...daughter of Rob & Jan...sister to Dan, Mark, Kari, Susan, LaDawn, Tamra, Will, Tara & LaNae...daughter-in-law to Lyman & Linnea...sister-in-law to Barbara, Todd, Jesse, Dustin, Ashley, Rich, Brian & Lori, Loren & Deleice, Elaine, Lora, Julia, Darrell & Nici, Clay & Annie...aunt to MANY...greataunt to a few...friend to a some and an annoyance to almost all. :)
