Life is short...

I learned a valuable lesson last week.  So I told you all how our couch came and the guys couldn't get it to fit down in the basement.  And that same day we had a minor problem with the plumber and the sink.  That problem still isn't fixed, but it's not that big of a deal.  

But I made it a big deal.  I kinda freaked out over these things.  I thought I was having the worst day ever.  I complained.  And maybe yelled.  

And then I realized something...

I am being ridiculous for getting upset over these things.  This is not a bad day.

 Life is too short to get upset over things like this.  How could I get upset that we have a beautiful home with now a finished basement and soon to be new furniture?  Shame on me.

Life is too short.

Be thankful.

Don't sweat the small stuff.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of my step dad's family right now.  Please say a prayer for them as they are going through a really difficult time.

And cancer, you suck!


  1. Thanks Amy. It does suck, especially when it strikes twice in one year to the same family.
    Love ya,

  2. Thanks for the reminder! I was thinking something simliar the last few days when we're all been sick, etc. I was having a little pitty party and then realized that here we are dealing with a little stomach bug while there are other people battling life threatening illnesses! I'll take a flu bug any day.

  3. Thanks for your thoughts Amy. We all appreciate them at this tough time.

  4. Just a good reminder! It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day stuff that I think is bad, rather than praise God for all of the wonderful things that I have in my life.

  5. My heart goes out to your family!

    What a beautiful little girl you have. New follower and new mama to a little girl too. :)
