2014 Daily December 7--adjusting to bumps in the road

I am a planner and try to plan things and schedule in everything.  With 4 active kids that can be hard. In December it seem especially hard to fit in 5 concerts, various basketball games, Christmas parties, and then everything else we want to do and then try to remember Christ and why we celebrate Christmas in the first place.  Sometimes things happen and mess up all the well made plans.  That is life.  You have to adjust to bumps in the road.  This weekend was well-planned out.  We had lots to do and lots of places to go, but we were going to make it all work.  What we didn't plan on was someone getting sick.  Mr J got really sick--like throw up every hour for almost 10 hours sick and run a high fever.  So much for well-made plans.  But that is okay.  Sometimes we just need to stay home and not do anything.  That is good too.  So, lesson learned, be flexible during the holidays--or anytime of year.  Well-made plans don't always work you.  You may not make it to everything, but that is okay.  Adjust to your bump in the road and keep moving.  Enjoy the journey--especially this holiday season!


  1. Oh no!
    I'm so sorry to hear that Mr. J was so incredibly sick.
    Hopefully he's on the mend and doing better now! :)

  2. I seem to remember this happening another year too. Tis the season!
