Today is not about a title - - it's just about life. And how it just is. And how lovely that can be.
There's been so much uncertainty in our family life lately - - nothing too traumatic or anything, just that feeling of "will things ever just be?" Why do we work so hard at finding that "next thing" . . . that thing we think will make us happier, richer, more appealing, more interesting, or more important? The crazy thing with DH and me is that we're constantly doing this to ourselves. Should we sell the acreage and move to town? Should I quit my job and start a business? Should we, could we, would we...? It drives us crazy, but we can't blame anyone but ourselves. Why are we so concerned about these kinds of things that are so truly irrelevant in the scope of God's awesome plan for our lives? And why should we even bother planning our future when our most important task is to glorify God and enjoy the immense blessings he has given us. Oh, the irony!

Snowball (the cat) decided to move one kitten. She put this white ball of fluff inside an empty ice cream pail in the garage. I moved the kitten back to the "cat house" twice. As I was cleaning my Jeep, I had the doors open. When I came out of the house to clean everything up and put the Jeep away, there she was again with the one kitten making a new home inside the Jeep!DD decided that the front porch needed some fixin' up . . . so she donned her kiddie-size tool belt and got to work:

A big bee also got to work yesterday in the herb garden: My good friend let me practice my photog skills on her DD - - oh what fun!

I know exactly what you mean. I'm married to a man who never does this. He knows exactly what he wants out of life, and is very content to just *be*. And I drive him crazy with my ever-qwesting-ness. (How's that for a word?)
