...there are just days when something sucks, you know?  Around the Woodshed, we hash it out around the dinner table, talk about it again in the living room, scratch our heads and maybe even cuss once or twice.  Then one of us realizes that its not really that bad, that life will go on, maybe even better than it would have been if things had gone the way we would have liked.  We remember God's goodness and push aside our self-focused thoughts for eternal thoughts...like "it will build our character" and "maybe it will be better this way for some reason" and "let's try to see this from the Father's perspective" that, while annoying, really are true.  

Today was one of those days.  We've hashed it out.  We've been mad.  We came around.  We'll slowly realize that life will go on.  We'll grow from it, albeit an annoying and painful growth.  

I'm glad I've got these four boys to do this life with.  I wouldn't want to do this with anyone else.
