Who Is The Patron Saint of Patience?

Since I turned forty last August, I confronted one of my worst fears which was a devastating hurricane. And now as I approach my forty-first birthday, I am now dealing with something else that fills me with dread: living in a house while it is being renovated.

When we were shopping for our first home, everyone kept suggesting that we buy "a fixer-upper" and the idea of that just struck me with terror. I know my personal limitations and a fixer-upper is something I just didn't want to have to deal with. Life is stressful enough without purposely adding that ongoing upheaval to my day-to-day experience.

Well, thanks to Katrina, I will now be living another of my nightmares starting on Monday when the contractor begins working on our house. Lord give me strength and patience for the next 10-12 weeks!
