It's been too long since I've updated this blog!  Life has been busy at a steady pace, and this Momma has gone back to work, although part-time, it has drained me beyond anything I ever dreamed... balancing it all has been quite an adjustment, and I'm honest when I say, that I don't know how full-time workin' Mommy's do it!!!  I have so much respect for all that they are able to hold together!  I feel like I am failing at this  (you should see my house), but the Lord has so very graciously given me the perfect job for the hours that I needed (when both girls are at school) and I'm so thankful for his provision for our family.  I have been working at the Pre-School at the girls school... there are two classes, and I am not in Ella's class, but I get to see her all the time!  Can't ask for much better than that!  I should find out tomorrow if this is going to be a permanent thing, or if it's over (we are waiting district approval for my position).  Either way, I'm SOOO very grateful for the opportunity to work these past 2 months!  God continues to shower his blessing on us, and this has definitely been one of those blessings!

Brad has been working in a warehouse, where they ship items that have been ordered through, so if you are looking for Kitchen Utensils... order from Amazn, and it may have been shipped by my hubby!  :)  We are so very grateful for this job for him as well.  It's not at all what we had planned for our lives, to be in the place that we are, but we are seeing God's hand in our lives in ways we never have before.  How can we complain when He continues to remind us that He is here, and He knows the plans He has for us.  We have been attending a church, and it seems like the sermons have been hand-picked for the situation we are in, and the encouragement we continue to receive from that has been such a blessing to us. 

In this season of waiting, we are blessed.  We don't handle it all with grace, every single day.  It's a constant battle, and we have to continue to choose to be grateful for where we are.  There are SO many in this world who are hurting and living through MUCH harder circumstances than we are, and I pray that we can find ways to minister to others through this.

I just wanted to share how grateful we are to have each other, to have four WONDERFUL children, and to be surrounded by our family.  We can't wait to see what God holds for us, but in the wait time, we are choosing to be Thankful!
