Daily Thoughts and HappeningsDo you ever think about your life and how good it's going and wonder if it can continue that way? Can things ever go too perfectly? Life is not meant to be perfect. If we lived our lives in perfection what would we learn? Life with no twists and turns, life with no unexpected challenges thrown our way would be a very boring life. I've been thinking about this lately. Here we are Russell and I and things seem to be going pretty good, we have our new house and things are starting to come together. When we came here to Oklahoma we had to pretty much start over. Neither of us had jobs lined up, we had no place to live. We quickly found a place although it was not really what we had in mind. After we decided to stay there until his child support was done with we started doing small things to fix up the place. It was starting to look much better. Despite the unstable economy we were in a pretty stable situation. Then a chance came along where we were able to buy a house from Russell's Dad at a ridiculously low price so life starts over again. Just when we think things are going well, yesterday at Russell's work they had a meeting and told all the guys that in 2 weeks they were going to decide if they are going to keep the company open or not. They may let some more guys go or they may close it down completely. So this is another test of faith, another challenge. We have had many in our relationship over the past 5 years that we have been together. We will get through this one as well, whichever way it turns out. My faith is very strong at this time. All I have to do is remind myself that we are the creators of our life, we choose the path we want to be on and can take our lives in any direction we want.
We actually have some sunshine at this moment and also had some yesterday even though rain was forecast. We have had rain on and off for the past couple of weeks and the humidity is so high that everything feels damp. When I walked in the house after work yesterday the house smelled weird, almost musty. Putting the AC on took care of that and I burned some incense as well. As I'm writing this I just heard the tornado siren go off and I'm pretty sure they are just testing it. It's really loud from the back of the house where I'm sitting with the windows open. I'm not worried about it since the sun is shining and no tornadoes in sight. ;)
Today is a day off for myself and Russell is off as well. However he has a plumbing job to do for someone today and it's going to be a messy one underneath of a house. With all the rain we've had it's probably a mud pit under there.
I'm really bad about replying to comments on my posts so I've decided to add a section where I reply to them in each post. :)
