Snow that makes me grumpy...

Today is one of those tough days that sneak up on you for no reason.  I still know in my heart that I have so much to praise the Lord for, but today I'm having trouble getting past some minor annoyances.  Thankfully my cold was short lived and I'm feeling much better in that way.  Being sick caused me to get behind on a lot of my house work, between that and renovations, I'm living in a bit of a mess.

I can look out the window and appreciate the beauty of the snow, but I sure dislike it while I'm outside!  My boots are too difficult to bend over and put on, as a result I've been wearing slip on shoes and getting wet feet!  We all have those negative people in our lives that seem to complain constantly for no reason, today...that's me!

Sadie has continued to fight naps during the day, this raises my stress level as I truly need that break each day.  Please pray that Sadie would stop fighting naps and give in to her desire to sleep.  I'm sure there are moms all over that have this same prayer, not sure why God should choose to answer mine, but it doesn't hurt to ask!

Tomorrow morning is our last Calgary echo, they wouldn't normally be doing another echo here in Calgary but are concerned about the narrowing still and want to keep a close eye on it.  We're praying for good news about the size of Hope's aorta as well.  Shawn is not able to join me for the echo, it's always a long and draining test.  I'm hoping to use the time to journal and rejuvenate so I can get out of this funk.  I'm working to remind myself that even if I don't finish my to do list, life will still continue.

Today my prayer is for joy and peace, I continue to praise the Lord for the incredible ways that he blesses us each day.  I need my eyes to be opened to see these blessings more clearly.

Thank you for walking with us, even when we're not very chipper!
