I am beaming. There are several reasons but honestly the main reason is I'm just happy. Plain ol' happy. There have been a couple things that could cause one to flip (like a hospital sending you to collections and said collection agency drafting $500 out of our checking account; driving to the bank to stop payment on the illegal draft only to find out a couple days later the bank forgot, just sayin...). I feel more with each day that, "I will not be moved." God is good and good things are happening all around us.
Reasons for my beaming:
-Thursday Jared and I leave for a couple days to St. Louis for a wedding. We get a two night stay in a honeymoon suite as a gift from the bride and groom for performing the ceremony. I CAN'T WAIT!! Whoo HOo. My mom is keeping the boys. Vacation!!
-A family in the church called us yesterday and donated a kitchen table and 8 chairs to our family so that when our new addition gets here we will be able to sit as a family for dinner (our current table only sat 6). We prayed so fervently for this little baby and I feel that the Lord is blessing our decision to trust in Him.
-Last weekend we were able to reconnect with a lot of close friends and I've been on cloud 9 ever since. It's so nice to see so many people we love and have missed so much.
-It doesn't seem to matter who we tell about our sweet baby we are constantly greeted with love and excitement. We feel so blessed to be supported by friends and family.
-I have started back to work for Weight Watchers and my meetings are going well and the income is helping with the increase price of everything. I really enjoy the time and can feel it's boosting my confidence and overall sense of well being.
-Volunteering to watch our neighbor's little girl is already providing opportunities to get to know them better. We've been hoping to befriend them since they moved in and they came over the other night and just hung out.
-Thanks to Tashy I am going tomorrow to pick up the pack n play listed in the earlier post. She found one on Craigslist and it was within our price range and ready for pick up!! Did I mention they cost about $179 new and this one is $50!!
-God is good. Like I said, Even the things that would normally get me worked up just don't have a foothold. I can count our blessings and naming them one by one takes away all the stress and allows me to focus on the Goodness of God.
Praise the Lord. I do believe the fog has lifted.
