Yes, I know today is Thursday and so what the heck am I doing posting such a negatively titled post? Well, it’s about being grateful despite the lack of perfection.
As many of you know I made big changes last October when I enrolled in online university and then packed my things and moved to California to live with a married couple I had barely met so I could help them with their impossible daycare needs. It seemed the perfect solution. They have someone responsible, kind, loving and of high integrity available 24/7 and I have a roof over my head and very little expenses.
After my return from vacationing back home in the Seattle area where I was reunited with my 21-year-old amazing son, I came home to a less than luke warm response. The father is still exactly as he always was: kind, friendly, warm. The wife however ignores my presence even when I am speaking with her. I have no idea what has changed. And I know that it is nothing that I have done. He says everything is fine. I think I’ll be moving within the next 90 days. But I don’t know as I’m not being told anything. Only time will tell.
What I do know is that I am grateful that for now I have a warm room to rest at night. There are so many homeless people living in America these days as the cost of living outweighs the ability to earn. I am thankful that I am not one of them. I can bare this cold front with calm and grace. Please pray for me to land somewhere safe at the end of each day.
