It was hard today. It was a rough day of homeschooling for the older 2 (and took longer than usual). In the middle of the day, my only thought was, “This day sucks.” Obviously I was in a bad mood myself. I continue to grieve the closure that I badly wanted for this school year. My last year of not working outside of the home. Last year of Toshi being both mine and Allan’s daytime buddy. I continue to grieve.


Abba Father, You are good. When all is said and done, I know that we are in good hands. I trust You. This hurts in many ways, but I know You are with me. There is a lot to be grateful for. Amen.
