I have been thinking a lot about the importance of gratitude and patience. There is a cute little Mormon message the girls like: a Dad comes home and steps on a chip, and sees a chip trail leading to the closet, opens it and sees his little girl holding the chip bag. "Are you mad at me" she asks. "Yes, if you didn't save me any chips." She smiles and holds one up to him. Then a little later you see the mom open the door and exclaims "I can't believe you two.... you forgot the dip." She smiles and hands them dip and closes the door. Over the video it says: "PATIENCE, USE IT BEFORE YOU LOSE IT!"
With this job situation, and this pregnancy, I have realized I have more patience than I thought WHEN I remember that God loves us and is in charge. I am 11 weeks now, and am more hopeful that this baby will stay so we can enjoy holding them in August. And the job situation will sort itself out sometime...hopefully soon.
