The point is she was adapting to her environment and taking what comes. Happily being content. I can learn something from her there I think.
As we have been making serious decisions about the future of our family I have been stressed out to the point of not being capable of driving. After the 3rd distracted wrong turn I turned the wheel over to my husband the other day. What I think I need to remember is after all the moves and changes we have been through in the past 18 years of marriage we have always been taken care of. We've always adapted. Even if we didn't speak the language or like the kimchi. We need to not take counsel from our fears and trust that we can adapt to anything. With God's help.
On the flip side I am trying to be sensitive to my teenagers who have settled in nicely where we are and should not have to keep moving during this trying time in their lives. My second son in particular has a tendency to be in a funk. This boy, who as a 6 yr old was awarded "best behaved boy" in his after-school chess club, isn't really that same upbeat unruffled kid today. Just ask him to practice his music and his dark side comes out to stay for a while. In fact I think I am guilty of tip toeing around his possible mood-swings at times. I do things to keep him happy that I probably wouldn't do for the others. I am probably doing him a disservice in the end. I am not a perfect parent. I recognize it at least. However I challenge any parent of multiple children to make an honest claim that they treat one and all exactly the same. No two kids are the same, making it impossible.
So you adapt.
