I'm overflowing.

I am just so thankful for so much.  The big things, the little things and everything in between.

My coffee tastes phenomenal this morning.  My children are playing peacefully in the living room together.  My sweet husband is snoozing and enjoying some extra sleep on his day off.

We both have been having some neck issues and Jared's known for his headaches.  Last payday I splurged and purchased a $17 pillow.  I was about to purchase a new mattress so this seemed like an inexpensive thing to try.  My 4 week neck pain subsided over the course of a couple nights.  Yesterday I picked up the same pillow for spousey.  He didn't snore a fraction of what he has been.  He got up for a second and said he slept great and has no headache so he's snuggling back in for a bit.  YAY for new pillows!

I get to work today :)  I've been shadowing Ebony (a personal trainer at the Y) in the evenings and today I get to meet with my very own clients for the first time!!  I have 3 appointments scheduled for this evening and I'm giddy!  If you've been following my journey towards certification you know this is a long time coming.  I was certified in September, employed in October, and now training in January!  I'm nervous, but so excited.  We need the cash to help with car tags and it all seems to be working out just in time.

God is good all the time, all the time God is good.

What kind of pillow did you buy? :-)

We bought the King Size Beauty rest Extra Firm for side and back sleepers pillow at Wal-Mart. They're $17 each here. We're both super pleased with them. Who knew a simple pillow would make such a difference!
