When our now three year old had an unprovoked seizure when she was a baby while my hubby and I were 4 states away, I didn't fall to pieces in panic. we couldn't control the situation so we handed it over to God prayed and it all turned out to be okay, though it took months of testing to arrive to that conclusion.
It's seems though that I need to apply this attitude to the minor things as well; let go and offer it to God.
Last week I was a basket case! My honey was out of town for the entire week. So it was just me and the 6 kiddies. It's not the first time I've been on my own for a few days with the kids., but it feels like whenever he is gone if the little stuff can go wrong it will!
On Day one I got a call from Kaiya's school to come pick her up as she was in the bathroom vomiting.
On day two I go a flat tire picking up the boys from school. Picture 6 hungry kids in a very small mechanics waiting room for 2 1/2 hours!
By day three I hadn't been able to get to the post office to mail packages, so I went to print out my postage and the printer was out of ink, of course so was out local Office Depot as was the one in the next two towns! I finally found ink hurried home to get it back in the printer so I could make the evening pick up at the post office, only to find that the printer was also malfunctioning. I didn't make it to the post office.
Day four our computer monitor died. It just shut off mid e-mail no warning and never came back on.
By this point I was in tears! Not only was I behind on getting orders in the mail but now I didn't even have computer access to tell my customers about it.
But I pulled it together, put a smile on my face for the kids and kept on trucking.
Thank the Lord my honey is back home, we bought a new monitor, and fixed the printer...and also discovered the Target up the street carries the black ink for our printer, $4 cheaper than office depot and the are well stocked...sigh!
Oh and packages are in the hands of the post office :O)
Am I alone in this? Does anyone else handle stress this way or know how to let go?
Hope everyone is having a lovely (stress free) Monday!

For anyone who missed out, it was a pretty big giveaway with 12 daily prizes and a grand prize of 12 larger items most from etsy sellers, or stay at home mommy friends.
I'm starting to round up this years designers to feature. I'm working on three pieces that are special just for this but I'd love to check out some other artists.
Do you know anyone? Maybe you?
I'm looking for recommendations on who to feature this year. Your favorite etsy shop? A good friend with an amazing talent? Art work, pottery, kids wear, purses, candles, yummy homemade goodies?...Let me know. Leave me a link in the comment section so I can check them out.
Keep in mind, contrary to my kids opinion, I don't have a money tree in my yard so super expensive art work and jewelry wont make it into this years giveaway. Sorry :O)
everyone who takes the time to leave a comment will go into a drawing for a pair of hand forged earrings!
Thanks so much and good luck!

Thomas and Gabriel headed back today as well. Gabriel was so excited to start first grade and Thomas loved being the oldest sibling on campus.

Thank you again so much to everyone for your sweet comments and input.
I was almost ready to retire the "modern momma" necklace due to technical frustrations in getting the rings threaded through the top but as it was by far the most popular choice it's worth the frustrations :O)
I will post the winner late this evening. My kids and I will be cutting out all the names and putting them in a bowl. If your new here you'll know soon I'm Tech challenged so I haven't figured out that whole random .org thing yet.
Thank you so much to everyone that entered!
For my volunteers from this last week you will hear from me this evening for your addresses...thank you again:O)
I've been adding some new designs into my shop over the week. Here is a peek at them...
