Putting it in Perspective

Oh, friends.  Things aren't good.  I'm so sad today.  We found out some good news yesterday and then we found out some really crummy news.  Good news first...we found out that we got the house that we just love!  Yay, right?!  Well, then we found out that our house didn't appraise for what we sold it for and we don't have the money to lower the price and put the amount we need for a down payment on the new house.  The official appraisal hasn't come in yet, but it's not looking good.  We are praying for a miracle.  It would have to be a pretty big miracle and I know that God's in the practice of miracles, but it feels pretty ridiculous getting worked up about a house, when I have other friends that are worried about their babies in the NICU and their husbands losing their jobs.  My problems don't even compare. I'm trying to keep it all in perspective.  I have two healthy babies and precious, supportive family, Mark has a wonderful job that he loves, we have absolutely amazing friends, we live in a home in a beautiful state and I get to stay home with my girls.  It doesn't get much better.  Just breathe, Steph!

Prayers are appreciated, all the same:)!  Love you guys!
