One Year Difference

I can't believe how one year can go buy so quickly. Last year this time, I was dreading going back to work as a day home provider, enjoying my new baby and little girl. I loved my house, loved my neighbours and thought we'd live in Okotoks until retirement.

Fast Fwd 1 year- I have a spoilt/jealous 4 year old and a 1 year old who will not wean. We now live in Saskatoon. I'm not sure about my neighbours or neighbourhood (we have officially realized that we live in the "Hood"). I am impatient about moving into my new house in Osler. We are all frustrated with our cramped living quarters. I know that I should be grateful for what I have, when 90% of the Planet would love to live in my shoes. However, I am a sinful person who wants more.

I am trusting that God has a purpose and a plan for the Slomps in Saskatoon/Osler. I feel that there is something that he is leading me to, I just haven't found it yet. I know that God wants us to be here. I also know that Satan is around in the crooks and crannies reminding us what we used to have and what we don't have now. When we are weak and vulnerable (especially with 2 nightly feedings) we are susceptible to those lies. Trust........a word I struggle with, yet I know once I let go there is peace.

By the way, I made the cake. See what is possible with a cake mix, some icing and 5 ding dongs.

Chin up! Things will look better once you move into the new home!! God does have a plan and I am sure He will reveal it in His own time!!

Miss you lots! Love you more!!!
