Surprises in the Life of the Proverbs Woman

Surprising hugs in life.

What a month – just when I think all that can happen has happened, something else happens. I guess I should say . . . what a year.

    April 27th – tornadoes sweep across Alabama
    April 27th thru October 10th – deal with insurance companies, contractors and way too confined of a space.
    December 16th – we brought Hospice in to help care for my mom.
    January 13th – I took a leave from most of my content writing jobs to help focus on my mom.
    January 30th – my nephew began doing school with us at our home.
    February 1st – implemented a new schedule to handle all the changes and keep us focused.
    March 17th – my mom crossed over and started helping my dad get everything in order (the schedule helped to keep things in order as much as a time like that can allow).
    April 12th – my father-in-law had a heart attack.
    April 18th – brought my father-in-law back home, but now I have to REDO the schedule to make way for his diabetic and low sodium diet, taking the blood sugar before and after meals, and keeping up with meds.

Whew! What a time we have had around here.

But it is only as bad as my focus!

The moment when I think that I am going to crumble under it all is that very moment when someone reaches out and shares with me. It is just one of the ways I think God chooses to hug me.

Exhausted from making four meals (although I am using parts of the low sodium/diabetic diet for the kids as well) and dealing with teenage boys, I sat down and had a message on Facebook.

“I am so happy I found you on FB. Look forward to seeing how God is continuing to use you. You have been so faithful in the past to come along beside other writers/speakers, etc. and share what you can to help. (computer sites, etc. ) What a blessing you are.”

One message brought some sunshine to my day. I printed out and will have it handy for that next cloudy day. No matter how tough things get, or how crowded the chaos, God can send a hug in the most unusual ways.

Where is your focus?
