In the moment

We had a very busy Thanksgiving weekend.  We had endless family time coupled with seeing the movie Frozen, card games, shopping and great food prepared by my mom.  The kids had a wonderful time with Uncle Joey and Shauna being home.  The little ones love hanging out with them.          Carson had a riding lesson on Saturday.  My boy could not stop smiling while he was jogging (yes he rides western).  He said "mommy, she is like riding a fancy horse in heaven."  I am trying very hard to stay in the moment with my kids, however my mind drifts to work as there is so much going on.  Decisions are being made that are out of my control but in times like these I need to continue to give thanks to The Lord.   I heard a great message during Thanksgiving.... my take away was during dark times give thanks and praise and God will pave your way.  amen!                                                           Our house is still on the market.  We had a potential buyer, however they wanted a bonus room. We do not have a bonus room. So we continue to pray for the right buyer.  We are still working with the builder on the new house.  We made more changes to the plans.  We really do not want to start building until this home sells.  Again, I am trying to stay positive.  My positive tank is getting rather low so I am in daily prayer seeking direction and wisdom.  Well, I hear my sweet boy singing in the bath tub right now so I am going to get in the moment with him.
