Sometimes I don't even realize I'm trying to control a situation for a year (or…
Welp….My Rainbow Threw Up…..
^^^^This is what my rainbow looked a bit like, starting in December 2017^^^^
^^^^And this is what my rainbow looks like today^^^^
I was hoping, that 2018 would be a banner year!
I was going to lose 50 lbs. (We did join WW, now we have to utilize it)
My daughter would get married, without any issues. (Success)
She would also find her dream job. (Success)
Big daddy would lose some weight. (Did join WW with me and the gym)
Hunter would go into remission.
We would get another loan paid off.
We would get ahead in our savings.
Behavior issues would be resolved.
School would go off without a hitch. (We are so close to being done, though it has been bare minimum)
Noah would take his ACT and do well.
Daddy was going to get better. (Even after another scare, this year, and still trying to get bad habits under control….he got a good report from the doctor)
Another major family issue would be resolved.
A child would be safe.
A relationship would be mended. (Well on its way)
This was gonna be the year of the Crum family.
After several years of sucking dirt…..our rainbow was reemerging.
My beginning rainbow…..that I was SO excited to see…..threw up.
Now, I have chunks of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet all over my floor.
When my rainbow begins to be rebuilt, the first 1/4 of it will have lots of cracks, scratches, dents, and scars.
I still hold onto hope.
I hold onto Jesus.
I hold onto the promises that He has given me in His Word.
Today, I revel in the things that are being rebuilt.
Even with those scars.
It may not look like the original rainbow, but it is still full of color and character.
Here’s to rebuilding my rainbow and starting on the second quarter of this year.
