Nathan's Daycare Closing

I am still reeling from BAD news I received this week. Nathan's daycare is closing. I now have to find a new daycare for Nathan. I cried alot over this the day I got the news.

I told Lynn, my best friend in Arizona, she said, "Pulling Nathan from daycare was on your Con's list on whether to move back to Arizona. You can mark that off the list now." She's right. Marked off the list.

In the same week I had another friend write me the following...
"...I am GONNA give you a hard time about putting your beautiful son in day care. As hard as it is for you to drop him off and leave it is even harder for him to stay all day. I equate day care with child work camps. I say this much experience, too much experience. HIred help is not God's plan, in my intrusive opinion. As if you have ever known of me to be intrusive and opinionated. Since I am on a roll let me add that I think day care is the destruction of society and all of mankind for that matter..."
I guess I'm looking for another in home daycare, which has it's own handful of concerns that occupy my mind the life of a mother, I guess. So here is yet another opportunity for me to really, really trust God, not just give lip-service about trusting God. I realized this week in 2 different conversations that I'm exceptionally good at the "God will provide lip-service' when I'm talking to others about their lives. I know intellectually that God is faithful but when it comes to truly believing in that for my life...I struggle... I hope that changes.
