A would-be stay at home mom working full-time as a teacher. I teach at my old Highschool, working side-by-side with my own teachers. I blog to keep the Texan grandparents updated and chronicle our life for future reference. (In other words, I don't have a real baby-book or diary.) Comments make my day.

Moving to China

Well, we may as well be. Between interviewing, job training, a child with herpangina (read the "prevention" part), moving, college hunting, fasfa-ing, fun tests for Sam to figure out what's going on, physical therapy, birthday planning, my best friend since 5th grade moving away and having a ball with two gov't programs- I may as well be on a different continent. I can't help my friends, can't go on play dates, can't even go out for groceries with my husband. I don't know when it's going to stop or how everything is going to end. This is what happens when I try to plan too much and be too in control. Too much happens at once and I want to crawl into my corner and never wake up. This is why I have my husband and my mom who remind me to stop trying to be in control!

So whenever everything starts surfacing to my worry radar I literally have to close my eyes and remind myself that it's not mine anymore.
It's His.

And I can't wait to see how everything turns out!

Yikes - sounds crazy busy there! Best wishes on how everything turns out!

I'm totally there with you too!

Control? You mean it's not mine to have? I'm right there with you. Struggling to give it, then taking it right back just in case He forgets or doesn't do it like I want it!

Good job remembering that everything belongs to Him! Once you let go and let God, everything will come into place!

Ah the "gentle" reminders that we are human, His children, and imperfect...by design. He gave us free will...and it's up to us to choose as wisely as we can. I'm still getting "trained" on a daily basis. Fortunately, He has patience.

Yikes! You do have a lot going on. I hope things calm down for you soon!

Thank you for stopping by and making my SITS day so awesome! :)
