Anna’s Story part 62
Last week I was just starting to realize how truly happy I am. Not happy when I forget to mop the floor and have to get reminded. Not so happy when I have to change a poopy diaper. Not that kind of happy. Maybe it is what they call “the joy of the Lord”. I am just happy on the inside no matter what else is going on around me. I just want to sing all day long. Happy, happy happy. Nothing has really changed. I’m still living in a shelter. My kids still take all of my time every day. I am still broke. I still don’t have a car. I still need a new bra and don’t have the money to get one. But now it doesn’t matter. I am just high on life. I want to thank God for everything. I even want to thank Him because I am living in a shelter. It isn’t so bad here after all. We are safe. We have food and diapers and the kids get their shots when they need them. OK I admit even some of the stuff they make me do is helping. I admit it is nice knowing my ID is current even if it was a hassle to get it done. Other stuff too. They told me all the stuff they were asking me to do would help me later. I never did believe them. Now maybe I see things are not so bad here.
