Sunday Afternoon Blues

Well, I'm back again. This time it's just a little time to whine about stuff. I decided to break down and decorate the old homestead for the holiday since it looks as though there will be no moving before year's end (That sucks). I dug through the closet only to discover that the Christmas tree I thought I had was in my mind -- that along with the Christmas tablecloth. So I jumped in the car and headed to the local store -- Dollar General -- in hopes that they might be able to help reslove my problems. Their merchandise was not up to the standards of this member of royalty, so I came home defeated. I may venture to the Evil Empire tomorrow to check out their stuff, but the mood for decorating the apartment has kind of passed. I think it is a good thing that 2006 will be history in four short weeks -- with the exception of developing a wonderful relationship with Ben, the year has been a bust. The job market has been closed, the finances have gone down the dumper, and I am no better off than I was at this time last year. Lord, I hope that the big miracle comes my way in the new year. Between Ben and I, we are giving God all kinds of opportunity to show a miracle. Well, I guess that's enough bellyaching for now. I think I will go watch the Telly! Harry Potter is on . Later all

When I read your post, I was reminded of one of my favorite movies: Fiddler on the Roof. Two scenes come to mind. One is the "conversation" between Tevya and God. He sings "If I were a Rich Man", but at one point he basically asks if it would really be out of line for God to make him rich. The other scene is more serious. The group is readying to leave Anatevka and the one character asks the Rabbi if now would not be a good time for the Messiah to come. The Rabbi's answer is basically "yes, it would, but meanwhile let's start packing." Value 2006, not by the challenges it brought to you and Ben, but by the gift it brought to you in Ben. And look forward to 2007 together. "Behold, I am doing a new thing..." HUGS!
