I have had so many things I 've wanted to post in the past 2 weeks but a.) have not had a moment to do so and b.) we fried our, 8 month old mac book with a bowl of soup! Last week was an emotional, crazy week! We had great friends leave for Colorado over the weekend. They were some of Gabe's best guy friends. It was such a bitter-sweet time. We will miss them so much!
We had our second Moms meeting which was just what I needed. A fun, game time to act crazy doing Minute to Win it games! Although it added some stress & worry to my life...okay and a little frustration I realized one thing...how weak I am when I am in need. I believe with ALL my heart that God will PROVIDE and He is FAITHFUL in EVERYTHING. But often times I assume He knows my struggles which He does but He is waiting for me to vocalize them to Him. So, I am working on my prayer life.
"God is deeply concerned when his children are burdened by anxiety, in much the way parents are concerned about their children. It is tragic that we often worry ourselves to death when God's supernatural peace is only a prayer away."-Cymbala
We had to make a decision to not go back to NY at Thanksgiving which was EXTREMELY hard for us. We had already told Gabe that we were going and let's be honest I can't wait to squeeze little Hailey and Ella! I miss them dearly. Gabe only gets 3 days off from school so we were going to pull him for the other 2 and by the time we paid for all that we needed to pay for it just didn't balance out. I felt like we would of been unwise with the money God has given us...we could use it better if we just wait. Which is just so hard to do sometimes! I know God has a plan in all this. Sometimes it just stinks!
One of Bill's close neighbors died last week. He has been ill his whole life and so it was a bitter-sweet moment. We really wanted to be able to be there with family & friends to share our condolences.
