Well- The adventures of Autism have had plenty of difficulties this new school year; but that suddenly took a back seat to the adventure of changing the water heater. But even thru all the stress of mountainous proportions, some good things can still be found- I am really grateful to Mark’s brother for the plumbing expertise.
The recovery is allowing for work and rework that has been needed for a very long time this week focusing on the garage and girls’ room–I feel like angels have been helping me have the strength to keep going in a very real way, and seeing the effort and helping has really been good for my kids. They have all stepped up a notch to help, even if it only meant trying to do their homework without too many meltdown. And the girls are being great about camping out in the front room. 🙂
Yes- I’d definitely say the Lord has been working in mysterious ways. Today, though, I couldn’t keep going with the heavy lifting part, so I decided to pull myself forward with a little fun– repairing the mural and adding more and more grown-up bits. I so needed this- even if I am very stiff and sore today. So– here’s a few pictures for sharing in the fun.
