Roses and Thorns

Back to Roses and Thorns this week. It's also combined with a challenge. If you read this post you ACTUALLY have to comment! Okay? We like to hear from you!!

My Thorn this week: Hubby working about 62 hours this week.

The Rose: This is his LAST week doing this! Yay!

Now, what is the thorn in your side today? this week? month? year? Share!

My Thorn is nearly everyone's thorn: Sitting helplessly while watching the economy crumble.

The Rose: a test of faith, which always leads to a stronger relationship with and understanding of my Lord.

Thorn: Sickness once more invading our home. The husband brought home a nasty cold, which is making its way into my pregnant body.
Rose: Much needed rest is a requirement!

Megan said...

Thorn: I have about 38,000 things on my to do list, and not nearly enough time to get everything done.
Rose: Out of town visitors are coming Wednesday thru Sunday, so whatever I can't get done before then goes out the window and we get to just ENJOY time with family. Elsie's 1st birthday is on Sunday!

Thorn: Brandon working nights
Rose: While he and Jack sleep during the day, I can run errands by myself!

Thorn: My 5yo son is testing - EVERYTHING, in tiny, disrespectful, not in-your-face, ways.

Rose: I get the opportunity to practice endurance and patience, whereby building my characther, and hopefully his too!

Thorn: being up a lot in the night with a newborn and being so very tired.

Rose: holding my much-wanted baby and enjoying her cuddling into my chest and looking at me with her big blue eyes. Even dead tired it melts my heart!
