We have walls! And crown moulding! It’s very exciting and I feel like we are moving forward. At one point I felt like we were at a standstill such as the time between the hanging of the Sheetrock and the sanding of the Sheetrock. On Monday the tile guy is coming! We are tiling the whole first floor with wood look ceramic tile. It’s rustic with greys and browns I really love it.
I think the worst of the dust is behind us. At least that’s what I tell myself. The togetherness of hanging out in the basement as our main living space is not so bad, I’ve watched more television in the past 3 weeks than I’ve watched for the past 10 years. I’ve discovered the beauty of “on demand” TV. Well…rather Samantha has shown me how great it is.
Thomas is not having a good time lately at the group home. Twice they took him to check out a day program. The first time he cursed the people out, the second time he refused to get out of the car. As a result of his refusal/behavior he’s bored out of his mind staying at the house all day and I fear that he will unravel behavior wise. The staff and house manager have been awesome. I have not one complaint about them. They handle Thomas with ease and don’t seem to blink an eye concerning his antics and cursing. I’ve asked his Medicaid coordinator to please let us know when the next day program visit will be so Tommy can go with him. The house manager feeels having someone familiar be with Thomas as he checks out the unfamiliar would be best and I completely agree. I’d really appreciate prayers for Thomas as he continues to adjust to this new living arraignment.
God is so good. His mercies are endless and His grace sufficient. I know He hears every prayer and collects every tear we shed. I love the visual I have of our Lord and Savior collecting our tears. I know that nothing we suffer with for how ever long the season; we aren’t ever alone. He goes before us and will never leave us. We serve a might glorious God.
