Well, that was hard. (Ha-ha!)
Seriously, it WAS hard, but it was SO worth it, folks. I needed some serious time with the Lord and, boy, did He come through. I now have clarity in areas that I didn't, provision where I needed it, and strength where the monster of insecurity had robbed it. Among other things, but I'll mix all of that in with upcoming posts.
So how the heck are YOU?! I've missed you all something fierce and thought of my sweet bloggy friends often. I've said it 780 times before, but it bears repeating, that this community of friends is such a huge treasure to me. Y'all make me run the gamut of emotions (sometimes all in one post!), and being the emotional girl that I am, I LOVE it. :D I look forward to catching up with you.
Lots has happened here in Westie World over the last 6 weeks. Everything from getting FOUR inches of snow here in Sweet Home Alabama....
....to the acquisition of a chihuahua.
We'll call this "Yo quiero keep me?". The kids named him Taco, but I nixed that pretty quickly. We ended up settling on Mikey. He's a zillion kinds of rotten and I'm a huge pushover. The end.
We still have our Oreo and if you'll look in the top left of the snow picture, you'll see her in all of her glory. Sorry. :)
Let's see what else...
*Jacob bridged over to Boy Scouts which caused even more emotional trauma for a Mama who feels that time is flying faster than the speed of light.
*Julianna lost her first tooth. She's 8. To say that it was a much anticipated event would be a GROSS understatement.
*The flu decided to strike my boys while they were on a campout in Tennessee with the Boy Scouts. Thankfully, Mark was there and was able to get them home early. Sadly, it was not before 90% of the troop was exposed. I bet I won't be winning any popularity contests with the Mom's there any time soon. :/
*We spent some time at the nursing home where my Grandma lives. The kids and I watched as she commenced KICKING SOME ELDERLY BUTT on the Wii. I'm still pretty amazed at her mad skillz. I am so taking my camera next time.
*Speaking of my camera; My beloved little Kodak EZShare... I fear it is on it's last leg. It won't toggle anymore and the do-hickey that closes over the lens won't open all the way. I am deeply saddened, especially because replacing it requires coinage, and coinage is being utilized for such luxuries as FOOD right at the moment. Hopefully, she'll hold out for a little while longer (7 years should do it) before I retire her. ;)
I guess that's about all for now. Hope each of you have a most blessed Easter! Please go to the song I posted below and just listen. It's perfect.
