Oh Deer

My dear hit a deer and now my wonderful paid for van is a "no-go". This is terrible timing since all that is going on is going on. Sometimes life hands you a lemon, other times life hands you a whole bowl of them. We are managing. We really enjoy lemonade. Erik is safe and that is what really matters. It could have been so much worse. Everything could be worse-I just keep repeating that to myself a hundred times a day. This too shall pass. That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger...come on, leave me a good endurance cliche' in the comments-it will encourage me or make me laugh and both are all good right now!! Anyway, my prayer life has improved considerably. I think I shall go have a nap before my shift at the hospital.

Enjoy your Sunday!!

I am glad your hubby was not injured, but am so sorry about the vehicle.

I don't have a platitude for you. I sure hope things get better soon.

Let the sunshine in
Face it with a grin
Smilers never lose
Frowners never win.

Enought with that sap. Just keep praying!

Well, I have a husband that is an old pro at resurrecting minivans, if you need the help :-)

Is E in the hospital?? I am so sorry--but your cliches have encouraged me this morning!

Love the family pic in the sidebar! I am thinking your super model agent will be calling you even more now :-)!

No thanks to seatbelts, sturdy van construction and an incredibly safe driver-he walked away without even a scratch.

I am SO glad Erik is okay, but I am bummed about the delivery of lemons you have received. May God bless you through all of this!
