Sometimes it feels like amazing things just fall into our laps and so that means that they are meant to be.
But what if they're not. How do we know?
Once we had the opportunity to live with an old man and be his caretakers. Rent free, + $500/month. It sounded amazing.
And it was. And it also was awful. Because I had a little 1 year old and hubby had a long commute and it simply wasn't good for our family.
But I learned A LOT. About myself, about parenting, and about senility. So that was good, but I was bitter for a long time because life had been really good and then this opportunity came along and we prayed about it and it felt right and it ended up being kinda sucky.
So now when seemingly good things happen I feel a little trepidation. I keep wondering if God's just trying to screw with me. Oh, me of little faith. I guess this goes back to the post about feeling the spirit. Sooooo hard!!
