Today has been pretty good. I woke up and flipped through the channels this morning and eventually got myself up, got my prosthetic on, ate breakfast, brushed my teeth and eventually started cleaning while listening to Rob Rufus. I had the volume turned up very loud so I could hear in the kitchen and living room while I cleaned and mom called while Rob was yelling something and she's all, "What in the world is that!?" lol. Rob gets hyper from time to time ;)
Mom had to go get some cold medicine today and so I've been her servant lately. I don't mind though, I just tend to get annoyed with all the having to wash my hands all the time. I've just had two colds and I don't want another one! She has a chest cold which isn't good for her because she has bad lung problems. So if you please, say a prayer for her. Shes been absolutely miserable lately. She's had something wrong with her stomach that has caused it to swell and whatever it is, it causes her back to hurt and up into her head, behind her ears. Shes not in a good way and my temper easily flares up in times like these because I get stressed when I can't do anything to help her. I just pray that God teaches me to love unconditionally, not afraid to get sick or whatnot.
In other news, God and I clean my house everyday. I really enjoy it!! But some days I don't have as much energy and so I have to pray for motivation and strength and He gives it. It's good to simply live in the now and not worrying about whether or not I will stay consistent in cleaning up the house everyday, but simply cleaning today. It's easy for us to live in the future and start (in our minds) cleaning up tomorrow's kitchen. Jesus is my Life and Power. He allows me to take part in His works. Yes, they can be as simple as cleaning. I love the quote from the The Shack where Papa (God) says, "If something matters, everything matters".
It's all small to God anyway.
