Oh the Struggles

Okay so yesterday was Ron's birthday, it was such a busy day that I really didn't have time to think too much about things. I also have a friend's 3 children this week while they are away (they are in school during the day so it isn't too much extra..plus they are really great kids).

Anyway, there was a dinner last night with the pastoral candidate and his wife at our Bible study group. They seem to be really great people and I enjoyed getting to know them better. I'm looking forward to hearing Bob speak on Sunday.

Now I struggle with a couple in my group, they are very nice people but I have a few issues with them. I think I was also a bit sensitive last night as well...but when someone announces a praise item about a fellow in town who has a brain tumor (this guys tumor has shrunk). I know that this is my struggle, I wasn't upset that his tumor had shrunk, but upset that this person had made a big deal about it. This is my selfish side, I felt that it was a bit insensitive of him to do this while I was around...now feel free to say "suck it up princess, it isn't all about you". I do know this and I'm trying to deal with it...just give me time.

Now, Ron's mom and brother are still not going to be attending his burial, I am truly hoping that they aren't doing this to upset me...because it really doesn't matter to me if they are there or not. I just hope and pray that they don't regret their decision.

We are now really counting down to Disneyland...6 weeks today!!! A family from our church will be staying in our basement suite for May and June, it will be great to have someone living here while we're away...and taking care of my dog (right Jen)!!

Now I'm off to take wallpaper down...need to get things painted downstairs for said family!!

Oh man. I was thinking this week of Ron's birthday actually. I ran into the program thing from his memorial and it had his birthday on it. I'm sorry that someone blindsided you last night with that shrinking brain tumor. I can only imagine how hard that is on you.

We're really looking forward to living with you! And okay, I'll get used to the dog. I just have to suck it up. The kids (especially Kaylie) are really looking forward the the dog.

I'm very excited for you to get away! I think it will be a great time for you and Kevin but especially for Michaela. I'm sure the little princess will love Princessland!

I can understand why that would be upsetting to you! It sucks when people are insensitive like that!

So exciting that you are going to Disneyland! Take me...take me! Haha!

Hey girlfriend! I think it's perfectly normal for you to be upset by that, it was insensitive, they could have approached it differently. I'm sorry you are still getting grief from the out-laws, soooo frustrating for sure. We are coming into Terrace on Saturday, K has her recital so I'll give you a call.

Love ya!
