I spoke too soon.

The past few days have been hard, hard, hard. It's amazing how everything can be going smoothly and then BAM, a hundred things go wrong at once.

Jack suddenly became a different baby and started fussing and crying after eating. We think it might be a food allergy or maybe acid reflux... it's hard to know. So I'm on an elimination diet - trying to cut out the possible offending foods. I'm on day two and I feel like all I've eaten are bananas, rice, chicken and raisins.

I have an itchy rash on my legs and arms that won't go away... and just like Jack's problem, the doctors are of little help in pinpointing what the cause is.

On top of all that Tim's car is having more issues and boooooooo hooooo we both want to cry - right along with Jack. Sometimes life gives you lemons and no, no I don't want to make lemonade right now, I'm tired. Especially since the doctor prescribed Benedryl.

But, things could be ALOT worse. I am thankful that my family is safe, we have a roof over our heads, food in our bellies and are generally in good health (it could be a lot worse.) I'm thankful that Jack is finally asleep and snoring next to me, that Tim and I both have jobs and that some of the weight on our shoulders will be relieved on Friday when we get paid.

I'm thankful God is still God and that even though there are times (like right now) that I wish he would step in and make everything better I can count on Him carrying me through the storm back into sunshine sometime in the hopefully near future.
