Stress Tests, Softball and Chores!!
Tuesday, May 10, 2011
Mixed day today:
1. My 21 year old son started a 40 hour to 100 hour a week job as an IT guy in the city close to us!! Woo-Hoo!!! I love it when my kids get jobs!!
2. My husband's cardio stress test came back FANTASTIC!!! Woo-Hoo!! He has been doing such a good job of exercising and eating right since his heart attack and triple bypass!!
3. I came home to the kids' chores not being done and my hubby being at softball. Woo-Hoo!! I didn't get angry about it, but just told everyone to get at it while I changed.
4. I did 46 minutes of elliptical and then about 20 minutes of strength training!! Woo-Hoo!!!
And tomorrow.... We take my daughter and her boyfriend to the local crisis pregnancy center for their first counseling appointment. I think the boyfriend is now convinced that we are not going to kill him. (It was a thought!) However, I am still sad.... So sad about how my daughter's life has changed. I so enjoyed the fun I had from my senior year until 26 years old, when I got married!! I wanted that for her. And... selfishly, I wanted to play with her, too.
I was reminded at church on Sunday that God is NOT surprised!! He is a God of second chances who loves His people and He is not surprised when His people make mistakes and struggle. It was a comfort to me.
God is not surprised, but I am still in shock!! Good thing I'm NOT God, huh?!
Thanks for listening!!!
