Everyone has to made adjustments to their day. Something always comes up during a planned day, and we have to make adjustments.
Some places we moved to we love, and some of them we hate. It can be a good or a bad experience. In the long run, we have to adjust. Adjustments can be hard, or they can be easy.
During the last few years I’ve made adjustments in how I work. It’s hard for me to turn my job off. An office in your home is sometimes not the best thing to have. If you’re like me, you want to work until bedtime, but I’m not a very happy person working fourteen to sixteen hours. I’ve adjusted to turning my computer off at five or six o’clock. I have an iPad that I use quite a lot. In all reality I’m still working.
We’ve adjusted to our share of moves. The happiest move was to a 100 year old farmhouse. We remodeled it on a very tight budget, doing as much as we could at one time, then going back and working a little more. We were on a creek, and our children loved playing there. We had barns to explore and lots of farmland.
This old farmhouse was also the saddest place we lived. Our youngest daughter passed away while we lived there. Our other two children adjusted well, but I didn’t. It was so hard on me. I also learned a lesson. Hold fast to what you have. Remember the good times, never dwell on the bad. I learned to love our two remaining children with all my heart, and I knew our other daughter was in the best place ever.
Life throws us some pretty big challenges at times, but we have to adjust to the changes. We can do what we want to do. Me, I’ll make the adjustments.
