A Hard Day

Today is a hard day!

Tears are flowing.  I am feeling like just giving up today.  Maybe that is what I need to do is just give up and let the Lord take over.  Though I thought I was doing that my life and each day to the Lord.  Guess I needed to let go some more.  So today I sit here at the computer with tears streaming down my face, wanting to just cry and wonder why do we have so many issues with this darn motor home.

So we have put a new starter in and now Ron went and bought a new battery as well.  And all I can do is cry...what are the tears for I ask myself?

Because I feel like most every turn we have made the last two weeks has cost us time and money to fix this motor home.  And we are running out of resources.  We have worked, borrowed and been gifted money to make this trip to Texas and yet it seems like more is expected and needed.  We know that we are going to a job that we believe the Lord has allowed us to be given.  We just have to get there.  

We have made plans and changed those plans and made more new plans.    We have gotten it down to 1659.9 miles from here in Fresno. CA to D'Hanis, TX.  I am glad we have seen our kids and grandkids, my aunt & uncle and also Ron's cousins.  We are cutting corners every where we I just have to hope and pray that we have cut enough to get us there all in one piece and without any more tears.  What good are the tears any way?  None really.  So now I have quit crying and wiped away my tears.  I will take a deep breath and pull up my "big girl panties" as my friend Heather says and move forward.

Thanks for listening to my ramblings.  Now I think I will go work on my pictures for my blogs.  That will bring me joy!  Happy memories and beautiful scenery.  All will bring a smile back to my face and my heart.
