Well, here we are almost a month into 2010 and Tom is still working 32 hours a week. So far nothing has come of the Friday clean-up gig. Tom was told this week that they "might" be ready to start "one" group on February 5th. I have to confess to getting really discouraged. We've been praying for over a year that he would get back to 40 hours a week and still nothing. But then I think of all the people who do not have jobs at all or even worse, the people in Haiti and I realize how truly lucky and blessed we are. So I'll keep praying but I'll also keep in mind our blessings.
This weekend is a fairly busy one. Tonight I'm going to a friend's party to celebrate her promotion. Tomorrow is grocery shopping and a couples date! I am super excited about that! I'm also hoping we can get some of the books gone through that we didn't get done last week and I can get some more bookwork caught up to get ready for taxes.
From one of my favorite hymns:
Count your blessings, name them one by one.
Count your many blessing, see what God has done.
