Hello ladies,Thank you so much for stopping in for a visit. Today's post is about reality. The reality of my life is that I've driven over two hundred miles since Monday... and I haven't gone anywhere. I have had to accept the reality that right now, I have two extra part-time jobs in addition to my work at home.
Second, I work part-time at the cafe during lunchtime as needed. I have to be on-call to run errands, too. It's been a hard adjustment for me. I haven't done it with the sweet spirit that I know God wants me to have. This has brought on a lot of guilt over how I feel and guilt over all that I cannot get done. Can you relate? I've spent a good bit of time praying about it all. I'm seeking God's help.
All this to say, I've not been very thrifty. Maybe this isn't the season to focus on that. On the other hand, I live a pretty thrifty life just because I've done it so long. Specifically, I've done these things:
~ I sewed a button on my husband's trousers extending their use in his wardrobe for another season.
~ I let out the waist on my little girl's skirt thereby extending it's use in her wardrobe for another season.
~ I found some nice shirts for my husband at the thrift store.
~ I made broccoli cheese soup from leftover broccoli.
So, ladies, don't give up. Do what you can where you are with what you've got and with the time you've got.
I'm going to keep writing these posts. Why? Because they are a reminder to me that I must still do my best. They are a reminder to you that perfection is not the goal. Only one is perfect. Jesus Christ, the one who came in the flesh to reconcile us to God is the only one who is. We'll do our best and trust Him with the rest.
May I suggest?
