Gaining Acceptance

I haven't been able to blog because I have been so annoyed.  Part of my annoyance was at myself.  Some days I feel as though I am selfish and worry too much about whether I am being taken advantage of or not.  I am aware that our boarders do not share our same values.  Slowly I have come to the point of acceptance.  Money is still tight, the food flies out of the cabinets and I have moments when I want to take a certain dog to the animal shelter.  However, my level of acceptance has finally reached a point where I am not as angry as I was. 

My facebook post for the day...... Today as I feed my dog, homeschool one child, send three off to school, clean the pool and yard, check on my mom, feed the foster baby, look at all my clutter and mess, wash dishes and clothing, plant a few flowers, put dinner in the oven, watch TV and search the internet, I realize how busy I am but that I am also so Blessed. Sometimes when life is crazy busy, it is hard to remember that fact.

At this moment we are inconvenienced and struggle.  However, this too shall pass.  When our friends are able to move to their own place we will regain our old lives.  We will repair all the damage and recover. 

So, this too shall pass.  In the meantime, tomorrow I will update about Larissa.  She has had her testing with the neurobehaviorist, seen the neurologist, talked with the school and tomorrow we visit our primary care doctor.  Lots of changes are being made medically.  Hopefully for the best.
