Why a Black Cloud?

I will explain the "black cloud". My mother's family from time to time would say that if anything bad that could happen would happen to them and called it the black cloud. I find this to be true in my life almost on a daily basis. Just like a friend my black cloud is present everyday. Let me make this clear...I talk about my black cloud in an entirely jokingly way. I laugh about most things, even when they are bad....it's all going to be alright. My faith is such that the Lord will provide and even if I don't know how in the world we are going to fix whatever has happened, he knows. So please any of my bad things that I mention, know that I am laughing and remaining faithful while I am typing! And please LAUGH because I am!

He that is afraid of bad luck will never know good" -RussianProverb

Today is a New Day

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'"

- Mary Anne Radmacher

In the words of Mary Roddy, "WELL," the car still doesn't run. I guess I will have to "suck it up".  After all there is no way crying or worrying is going to fix the car. So today is a new day! We have decided that the head will have to be taken off of the Cavalier-yes a lot of work and prob a lot more money. The toyota will be pulled into the carport later today so the disassembling can begin. I am really hopeful that this one won't be as bad-but then again I was hopeful the Cavalier was going to start! 

Today my newly more independent teenage daughter took me to lunch and then out for ice cream. She even told me she had fun with me! She wanted to pay for all of it. :)  I asked what she wanted, what she had to tell me, and where was she wanting to go. Her answer "I don't have any other reason other than wanting us to go. We haven't done anything together in a long time".  Wow!  What a GREAT day!  We giggled and talked...it was wonderful. See the last 9 months or so have been very trying for us. She acted like she didn't like me very much-guess she didn't but hopefully she sees now (or later) that I was only looking out for her. 

My car and my relationship with my daughter relate to the quote above....I have said "i will try again tomorrow" in both situations...today a payoff....big smiles!
