The Rain Matches my Mood


The rain we're having in the Houston area today matches my mood somewhat. Gloomy, lazy. My "babies" were supposed to leave to drive to Nebraska today with their dad. They left yesterday to go to his house, then today were supposed to hit the road. I haven't heard from them. I'm sure my ex has enough sense not to strike out on a long journey in torrential rain. I miss them already, and they won't be home for four weeks! Luckily, I will be working a lot. I don't know how my step-kids' mom can stand not to see them for weeks or months at a time! On the other hand, I was subtley reminded tonight that my husband's ex used to live here in this house, and thinking about that makes it feel like it's not my own. I know it looks totally different now than it did then, but that's not the point. I wish we could afford to get a different house. This one is large enough, but it's not "mine." Oh well, I'll get over it, I supposed. I just need to cheer up soon. Toodles!

Rain always seems to make things gloomy. No one likes to go out of the house on a rainy day. And, when there's a chill in the air too, forget it! I hear ya.

A piece of advice - smile through the rain. Consider it as God showering his kisses on you. ;)

As for the house, it's not so much the physical changes that make it a home, it's what happens in it. Make it your own by keeping it warm & inviting in your own special way. The house is the building. The home is the love that surrounds it.

So much to be thankful for. Luv ya girl! :)
