"Congratulations! Today is your day! You're off to great places! You're off and away! And will you succeed? Yes! You will indeed! 98 3/4% guaranteed!"
from Dr. Suess's "Oh, The Places You'll Go!"

so i am still in the "no work" phase of my life. that is for various reasons that i won't get into completely, but it leaves the snelson family with challenges to face. which of course makes me feel guilty and somewhat responsible for hardships that we are facing, but i won't get into that either.

on to the meat of this blog! this past week has been eventful to say the least. lots of things happening.

amber's 3rd birthday was yesterday. i can't believe she's 3! i can't believe it was 3 years ago....WOW!!!

we also had some other things going on the presented challenges of their own. i never thought that this would happen to me, or if it did i would be absolutley devastated. but it didn't turn out that way. yes, i have my disappointments, but i've walked away from this experience with more of a hope than anything else.

going back to the beginning of this entry, having no job leaves me at home all day. at first, this left me feeling somewhat lost and without any kind of purpose. i stayed in bed until noon or after and ended up laying around all day. but this past week i've been getting up early...before robert leaves for work - those of you who know me well, don't freak out! and in doing this, and a few other things new to me, i've found that i'm not as lost as i once thought.

in short, it seems that the lord is teaching me brand new things that i never thought i would learn. the difference? allowing yourself to be taught makes all the difference. if you keep yourself so closed up and not open to what you could be learning from the lord, you're not going to learn it. but as soon as you allow yourself to open up, "oh, the places you'll go!"
