Unglued but Blessed

I would love to write a post telling you all about the new book I am reading, Unglued, by Lysa TerKeurst. However, I haven't had a chance to start reading it. I was waiting until the first day of the OBS (online bible study for those of you not in the cool club) to crack it open, smell the nerdy-girl new book smell and read away.

Instead the last week has consisted of packing boxes, lining up some help to move them, unpacking at the new house, and now heading back to finish up and clean the old place. I have been UNGLUED for over a week now ! I have snapped at my kids, rolled my eyes at many people, nodded in conversations without really listening and wanted to just crawl into bed for a nap. 

However, last night on the conference call, I realized that I shouldn't complain about anything related to this situation. I was blessed that my housing voucher came through just weeks before I had to be out of my then current location. I was blessed to find a rental home in the same neighborhood with more space and a low rent. I was blessed that paperwork was completed so quickly. I was blessed that my utilities were turned on right away. I will continue to be blessed with our new home.

So, I won't beat myself up for not starting the book. I believe the first chapter is titled "Imperfect Progress", so I am right on track :) Baby Steps is what will make this rental a home. Baby Steps is what will allow me to facilitate a small group study with friends.
