We are now in the process of shaping up the inside so we can move our belongings in, and I’m sure this will be the source of many tense moments and teeth-clinching times, but it really is worth it.
I guess the old saying about success being 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration really is right. Your attitude will not only affect the way that you look at your situation, but it will affect the people around you. My stinking thinking not only made me miserable, I’m sure my husband wasn’t happy having to deal with all of the troubles of a new house and a wife who acted like someone had just kicked her dog all week.
After being in my home for over 12 years, I will be moving my family for the first time and the future looks mighty bright from where I’m standing. Even if the future of our house starts to look less than bright, I’m going to strive to keep a good attitude. I’m pretty sure that my happiness isn’t found in the structure of our new home, but in the people that structure houses. We will make new memories, grow together and laugh a lot in our new home — if only we can make it through the moving process.
There will always be obstacles in our lives. Their outcomes are often determined by our attitudes. Keep a good attitude and watch how God will take care of the minor details for you.
