Feeling good about the future

18 Months oldI am feeling pretty good about the future today. I am not sure what it is. I was reading Shannon’s blog and she made some good points about things not always working out the way we want them to work out. She is so right! I might have ideas about how I want things to work out and I might have control over some of those things but I don’t have control over everything and I need to let that go. There really is no point to worrying about things you have no control over, especially when even if they aren’t working out the way you think they should, they still tend to work out.

This morning I am feeling pretty good about the future. Whatever happens as far as the Army goes is out of my control. I can’t do anything about it so I really just need to roll with it. In the end it will all work out. I just have to believe that.


7 Years Old

Once I take away that current stress I feel better. I feel lighter. I feel happier. I just hope I can remember to not worry about it anymore. Whatever is going to be, will be.

Summer vacation starts tomorrow and as of right now I am pretty excited about it. My oldest will be going into 1st grade and my #2 will be going into Kindergarten. I can’t believe they will both be school age kids. But this summer I hope to spend a lot of quality time with them since in the fall things will be different. I have to balance this with getting some work done which is going to be a challenge. Unlike last summer, my husband will be home other than a few weeks of field time. This will be nice. We will have the weekends to spend as a family in the summer heat.

5 Years Old

Our California trip is officially booked and I am very excited about it. I find myself thinking about it when I should be thinking about the rest of May and June here in Tennessee. It has been too long since we have taken a real family vacation. It has been even longer since we have gone to California together. It is going to be great!

I hope you are all having a great Monday too!

    I think the fact that we are aware that we dot have control over everything, makes the life interesting! Sometime you have some annoying neighbors, some very irritating friends, you definitely want to stay away from them, but you bump into them daily.. Sometimes you want to throw them down the building, but you just cant!!!

    I think these all factors make the life more interesting & challenging…:)

      I haven’t posted about it in detail on the blog. Just waiting for something that should have happened to happen. Waiting sucks.
