October has proven to be a whirlwind of unique challenges that have forced me to dig deep. Life does that, doesn’t it? – it makes us dig deep. We find out what we’re made of when it matters most. When times get tough, our true character comes out and teaches us who we really are. A church leader of mine use to always say, “Life isn’t for sissies.” Yeah, I believe it.
The flu found us. Strep throat found us. And the ashes from the volcano eruption in Chile last year found us (giving me a nasty nasty respiratory infection). I’ve been to the doctor a few times which has been an experience in & of itself. Think sea green. Think ripped foam chairs. Think a waiting room about 12’ X 15’ full of 20 people. Think 1960s. Wild. (I’m on medicine that tastes like…I don’t know what it tastes like, but I can assure you, it’s very very gross).
We learned how to live without electricity for over a week. Line drying is doable, but very time consuming.
Never fear I say. We Wolfley’s will make a come back, & it’s gonna’ be huge. In the meantime, here’s my happy helper & our favorite dish as of lately, empanadas (homemade and all) ;).
