I am tired.
The process of buying a house has been a nightmare. Snag after snag has come up. Issue after issue. But, through God’s grace, we’ve made it through them all. Whether this has been intended to increase my faith, my patience, or both, I don’t know.
The part that bothers me about all of this is feeling like a mooch. I’m at work today, while family members help move some of our stuff. We hit a major financial bump and some members of our family graciously gave us the help we needed. We’re going to be living with my father-in-law and his family for a few weeks until our house is ready. The list goes on.
I HATE inconveniencing all of these people. I have nothing to offer them. I know they’re doing it because we’re family and they love us, but I can’t help but feel like its too much, or we’re taking advantage of their generosity. I can’t wait until we’re done with all of this, so we can stop mooching.
Maybe its a pride thing, but I am tired of not being able to handle these issues myself, without dragging people that love me through the mud too.
