Have I mentioned that it rains here a bit more (actually a LOT more) than it rains at home? And have I mentioned that that makes the grass grow around here pretty fast? And have I mentioned that the campground staff mows the grass OFTEN? And all that mowing leaves loose grass that gets tracked in to the camper. Ughhh. So, I have to just "suck it up!"
Guess what?!? I can still multi-task! I can hang from a ladder, wash windows, and talk to my sister on the phone all at the same time! Bless her heart, she was having a mid-life moment in the clothing department of Target. (Love ya sis) She needed some consoling.
Yes, reality hits hard sometimes. Dirty dishes, smelly laundry, filthy floors, windows too dirty to see out of, or--clean enough for the whole world to see into..., and aging. I admit, it is a lot more fun to simply ride through life just looking at the pretty sights along the way, but that's not reality, and that's not what is best. I praise God for reality that keeps me going back to His word for encouragement, and keeps me humble, and keeps me looking forward to the fun days that come along ever now and then.
We will take that boat ride soon, I promise. Until then, I'll see ya in the funny papers!
