Trusting God!

So today my husband had a meeting with his boss who owns "The Dent Clinic". (he removes dents from cars with specialized tools by manipulating them..that is about as technical as i can get!) Anyhoo he is the lead tech at the shop where he is now and in a few months is suppose to run another Dent Clinic that is slated to open up here in the NW side of Calgary in a few months. Great opportunity, yes. Great location (not far from home), yes. A less stressful shop than the one he is at now, yes. All in all sounds like a great deal and one that we have been looking forward to since he virtually started last year. So the meeting today was to start setting up a business plan for the new store. For those that dont know my husband very well he is very business minded and analytical. He is great with money and has ideas flowing from his brain all the time! People look to him all the time to solve the problems within the shop that he is in now..even those that are "above" him. Well all those "ideas" that he was bringing forth to his boss today were shot down. "No chance" according to him. The money aspect of it is a concern as well considering that I am now off of EI and not heading back to work fulltime. He was hoping to get a set amount of money for the amount of work that he will be doing considering he will be managing as well as pushing dents. Well that number that his boss gave him was not the greatest (not really ballpark of what Reuben was thinking!) and he was told that maybe "I" need to start working fulltime! Who has the balls (sorry!) to tell someone that their wife should be working fulltime??  Needless to say neither of us were too impressed by this meeting. But this is months away and there are other "plans" in the works. As well this money aspect was worse case of what he would be making and there is always the potential of making more. So this dream of the new shop being something of greatness now could be something of not so greatness! It is so frustrating when my husband who is an amazing hard worker busts his butt for these bosses of his and they all take advantage of him and never seem to pay him what he deserves! Its hard to not think/wonder what God has in store and why this keeps happening to "us" and even more frustrating now that we have a family to worry about. Is it to much to ask for stability? Regardless I have to keep reminding myself to trust God, that there are things that we just have to cut back on and that in all reality we have more than we could want..more than what other people in this world have. That "dreams" are just what they are.."dreams" and that we need to set our eyes on God and not the unforeseen future cause that can change in a heartbeat! Maybe one day I will understand why it comes easier to other families but not to this moment anyways. It is hard though to be too upset when I have this little monkey walking around (and now climbing!) saying uh-oh at everything he drops, giggling when he drags a shoestring behind him and the cats chase it, throwing me a mischevious smile when he makes it to the top of the couch (laughing when mommy almost has a heartattack!) and when he balances precarously on a box while Rocco (our cat) sits next to him, both of them looking at me waiting for me to dash for the camera that is behind them on the shelve that they know i will not get in time but they enjoy teasing me! He sure does brighten my day! (all it takes is one snuggle from that monkey!) So yes i have a lot to be grateful for and my husband and son are all I need! (and God too of course!)

This is one of Rocco's favorite places to sleep. Lately Lucas is invading it and today he was climbing in to sit and play with Rocco over and over again! Often, after Rocco gets up, I find toys underneath him that I'm always surprised he had been sleeping on them cause they are usually hard plastic. Too funny!
 P.S- I apologize now if my son walks up to you and it sounds like he is saying "ass". He is trying to say "crash!"..unfortunately it doesnt sound like that quite yet!! I especially apologize if he is patting you on the bum while he is saying it!!! :P
