Do these things make us stronger? Hell yes! Did the Creator of Her beloved children decided to take my finger in order to make me stronger? Um.... no. Would you do that to your child?
The same goes for our current challenge. However, I do feel very strongly that the Lord does have a very specific silver lining to all of this in mind. There is one thing that this loss of family rhythmn and partnership plus about 1,000 other things should lead to.
It is time for a new vaccuum cleaner.
TDH comes from a frugal (cheap) family and he has an absolute inability to throw out large appliances. We have four vaccuum cleaners. 4. And they all suck for various reasons... none of them being dirt from the floor.
I want something lightweight.
I want it to do the dang job.
And I want it easy to empty.
Vaccuum cleaner lovers, I KNOW you are out there!
