Somebody Pinch Me..

Is this a dream?

About three weeks ago my Family, myself, and Paty were about to depart on the most incredible family vacation yet when I got down on my knees and prayed; Lord, I am confused, I am lost, I don't know what you want for this life or the direction you want me to go.  I need a sign, something big that reminds me not to worry.  You are in control.  (I must clarify, I was not confused because we were going on vacation.. I, prior to leaving had no job, no money, and no real prospect.. That I knew of ;)

So off we went, setting sail to St. Martin.  It was incredible. 

On the 4th or 5th day.. I am not sure, I received an email with news that could make even Casa Heaven in St. Martin better.  I GOT A JOB.
At first it was Kindergarten, then they moved me to First. The news came in at the perfect time to celebrate with the family that I got my first teaching job at Sylvan Park.  PRAISE THE LORD!!

If this is all not enough to make even the saddest person smile.. There is more.


What is even better is that he asked my parents the same day I got the news of my Job. Well Lord, If that was not a reminder that you have big plans for my life then I don't know what is.. 

It was the most incredible weekend of my life.  Paty after the sweetest proposal that I can hardly remember because I was so filled with excitement, planned to have Allison, Ben, and Walker come into town to spend the weekend at the lake to celebrate with us.  If that was not enough, Kennah and Janson got to come, minus the kids.  Then Mom came into town and spent the entire week with me. 

So I think this should be my last post as none will ever top the amount of love and excitement that has filled my life in the last few weeks.  But God is good and I know there is only more greatness to come.

Have a great week.

Excitement List

#2: Clean sheets and Zoe's for lunch.
#3: Taking Mr. Chester to the park. He loves the creek.. Who am I to stop him from having fun?
#4: Saskias BDay in the Park with Whos Bad, a Michael Jackson Cover band.
#5: This is not exciting, I shut the door on my heel and it bled and turned colors, but I did not cry. #badA

Hung With Care

Finally, a frozen air conditioner led to my Pepsi Box getting hung.

Yes I am aware it's not a Coke box but Pepsi will do.

Any ideas for it.. Send them my way.

I loved it.
It was Fun.
I was Miserable.

I said those exact words when describing my race. I finished in 2 hours and 20 minutes, could not be happier. I never walked, that was my only goal.. Well besides actually making it to the finish line.

Thanks to my St. Jude donators, Tennessee in Training, and my amazing friends.

Ahh Yes.

Today I....

Got up, iced my knees while watching My Girl. (1 and 2)

Went to church and learned about putting my wants and needs in the Lord and not my surroundings, they will never match up to what He can provide.

I rocked my very first pair of TOMS.

Took Chester to the park.

Couched it up with Paty.


Planted my first flower.. Thanks T-dawg for the awesome BDay gift.

Ahh Yes. What a great Sunday.

A Mamas Love

I have been home for a while now and developed a cold. Some may say, that stinks. I say, "perfect timing." There is no place I would rather be.

Here's to a Mamas Love and vintage Vicks.
