Making Plans

Leif's dad said it well tonight when he told Leif (speaking of our little family) if it wasn't for bad luck, we wouldn't have any luck at all. Now, let me just say this, I don't feel like this is true on a day by day, moment by moment, basis. But Wowsers, there are definitely times when I agree with this statement 100%.

Today Leif and I spent much of the day trying to put the pieces back together for our plans for the future. Before going into details I want to bring up three questions that we've asked lately.

1. Is/has Heavenly Father been trying to tell us something, warn us ahead of time, give us hints, about the game plan we've had drawn up and we're not listening?

2. Is our future just one of those things where Heavenly Father is just letting us do whatever we want without a lot of say on His part? If so, this leads to a lot of hits and misses.

3. Is Heavenly Father trying to tell us that it is time to do a complete direction change from where we're at right now?

We've concluded for the moment that the answer is #'s 1 and 2.

Leif and I have drawn up so many "plans" and then watched them fall apart piece by piece. I'm utterly SICK of making any plans at all. But when you don't plan, you miss the boat by days or even hours, and sometimes the boat doesn't come around again for another year. We know how this feels way too well.

And you know what's worse then just planning ahead? It's dreading the plan that you've come up with and not knowing a single option otherwise. Uggg!

All is not lost, we're still "planning". ;)

I've learned to never announce my plans. I make them, but I keep them to myself until they are a sure deal. It's easier than having to retract my words. Even then, there is no guarantee that the plans will go through, look at me and my schooling last year.

Sometimes things just happen and there is no rhyme or reason to it. You can't stop it, you just have to be flexible, willing to changed and then go with it. Good luck as you search for new options. You'll find what it is you need to do. I'm sure of that.

I agree with Molly in that sometimes things happen and there is no rhyme or reason to it. I know I tend to drive myself crazy thinking that there must be some meaning behind everything that happens. But I've come to learn that that is just life, with all its ups and downs. Anyway, good luck with your new plans. It will all work out! Love ya!
