when it rains it pours

- lawsuit for $100K against us by a former employee

- justins mom battling ovarian cancer

- partners with my parents on their new home just as the housing market crashes

- moving to my parents old home in orem and remodeling it (this is a good thing, but moving is always stressful)

- moving from mapleton ( how am i going to get through the day without five sis-in-laws and the best mother-in-law ever to help me raise my kids?)

- justin starting into a hard semester at school

- trying to float four properites through the down market

- justin learning (loosing) in the stock market (he will figure it out :)
i just wanted to list a few of the things on our minds right now - not to complain but this blog is for me and my family to read years from now and i want to remember these kinds of things too. if there is anything we learned from high country home it is not to worry too much because things always work out. really everything except jann getting sick is pretty inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. jann started her second round of chemo today - she has been so amazing through it, very positive and really seems to be doing okay emotionally - though i'm sure i don't see everything. she is a wonderful mother and grandma, i'm so glad we have been able to live here with them. if only every kid could grow up with so much love shown to them from so many people as ellie has, we wouldn't have to worry about our kids growning up in this crazy world.

I sypmatphize with your heading "when it rains, it pours." I felt that way much of 2007, but I had a few realizations today taking down my outdoor Christmas decor...just when you think it can't get any worse, you learn that someone always has it worse than you, and the Lord will never give you more than you can handle. Hang in there.
