Blessings in the middle

God certainly is blessing me while my DH is away. (See prev. post) It's crazy, because things aren't actually going very well, but I'm just not stressed. Usually I'd be freaking out, but I'm cool today. I even put on make-up this morning, which I never do unless I'm going to church. (Isn't that crazy? If anyone knows what I look like without all the war paint, it's the Lord.)

My son has asthma which only kicks up when he catches a cold. We thought he was over it. Well, of course, he caught a cold the day Aaron left. Apparently he isn't over the asthma, he just didn't have a cold all summer. He and I spent a lot of time up last night doing breathing treatments etc. and now he's feverish. My dorm boys' washer went out while one of their loads was in it, so I've got Jr. High boy clothes all over my living room. (He had tried to cram two loads worth into one because he didn't want to pay for the machine twice. They included his darks, whites, bright blue uniform socks, and nice khaki slacks. You can imagine the repercussions. Men!) Other things have happened which would normally have me up in arms, but instead, I'm just resting in HIS arms, and everythings going to be fine. I know it is.

I so know what you mean about being stressed but calm. So far it's only when dh is away. I wish I could be calm, instead of frazzled,while he's around.
Praying you'll stay calm this whole week while flying solo.
