Springbreak, not in Cancun

Ive been a little whiny lately. I think its that old green eyed monster jealousy that is lurking around my attitude. Its spring break and its rainy and cold. This is no surprise for Oregon in March. We love the spring flowers and green landscape but boy do we pay for it with rain rain and more rain. It seems like every where I turn someone is elated to be on their way to Cancun or some other sunny destination, except for my friend R who unbelievably is camping in this rain. I'm trying not to be jealous of the sunny travelers. The only thing I can think of is at least I'm not where everyone else is fighting for a place to lay my towel on the beach or lounge chair by the pool. I do love my comfortable bed at home and my parents are here visiting from southern Oregon, and as I'm writing this post my two silly girls have come into the room to do a dance routine to entertain me. How could I ask for more? Comfort, warmth in my home and family to love.

Proverbs 14:30 (New Living Translation)
30 A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones.

  3. You are always an encouragment no matter if you say something about this struggle or not. I feel badly that my family has to struggle through this now but I dont know what I would do if I had to suffer alone. I tried and now I know that just knowing that people are praying for you is so empowering. I wish we were in cancun then at least I wouldnt have to be cold and wet!
