Still have to keep on smiling:)

Well today I still have to smile, even when things go wrong. First, I heard of my Aunt's father passing away last night. I know he is in heaven but he was wonderful to me. He was a great guy and a wonderful person to know.

Then while I was in the middle of cooking steaks the stove/oven decided to stop working. At least I got the kids steaks cooked.:) I was in the middle of cooking my mil steak. So I had to run out to Wal-Mart and get a griddle. I had one at one time and someone had dropped it , this happened over a year ago. I decided not to get another one but tonight I didn't have any choice. Now if I can figure out how to cook like pasta and rice without a stove. I even tried the circuit breaker and it wasn't that. I don't know what it is. :( Maybe I should learn how to fix a stove. LOL I have to smile. This stove is only 3 years old. It shouldn't go that quickly. I guess my birthday gift will be getting the stove fixed.:) Yeah.:)

Well I am learning that you have to keeep smiling.:) Smiling helps to get through the tough times. The Lord helps alot. He tells us in the Bible to cast our burden/troubles on Him. It helps to have the Lord to lean on.:) I am so thankful for the salvation of my Aunts dad, I am thankful that I have a crockpot and griddle that I can cook on. I am also thankful that I have a van. Our other car is still sitting in the driveway with a flat tire and is a fire hazard. I have alot to be thankful for. I don't want to complain.

I hope everyone has a bright and fun week.:)

Sorry about the loss of your Aunts Father. Currently I can relate to some of your appliance woes. My Washing machine decided yesterday to spew all the grey water all over my utility floor and it has been interesting trying to figure out why it did that. I do hope you get your cooking issues solved, and yes to smile and laugh even when it hurts at times is the best medicine
