Family Time at the Holidays

This is a hilarious picture. Ever feel like the holidays is just like might feel like you get too much of the family time...or perhaps, their thoughts and ideas for your life take away the space between you.

Well, I'm glad to have family...crazy or semi-normal...too much advice or love...I love spending time with family and friends. I have been feeling very anxious about becoming a parent. It's a crazy road to go down, but I have wanted this for a very long time.

I'm hoping that I will be able to show my kids love, comfort and direction without ending up like this picture. I know it will not be easy. I have control issues that I'm working on. I trust God to guide and direct correct me when I misguide or judge. May each of you enjoy your family and friends....may God guide us in balancing life.

There is so much I have learned from my family and friends...some good...some not how I'd like to do it...but I have learned nonetheless...and I'm very thankful for each and everyone of them.

May God direct us into helping or friends...or their full potential in life. Be a block that helps them climb the mountain, instead of a stumbling block! :) That's what I'm hoping to be for my future co-workers..and strangers I will not be easy...because I know how much I get in the way...but I am going to do my best...and pray everyday that God pushes me aside!

Old quotes I had saved on my computer

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich. -Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Embrace your uniqueness. Time is much too short to be living someone else's life.

COULD IT BE...................................

When I was a little girl, I dreamed big...and prayed a lot....and when I say a lot....I mean a lot...that God would create in me a miracle from His hands, will and grace...where me and my hubby would come make a beautiful addition to our family...and now....can I get a drum roll please...and a big shout out to God with a Praise HIM...........WE ARE FINALLY PREGO and I am just finishing up my first trimester...beware of an ever growing tummy, tears of joy and shouts out to God.

I never thought it would be this hard, but it is worth every minute of suffering...through trying to fight doubts ...keeping hope....and watching it all pass by me...until I will get to be like the little lady pictures above...I will have the blessing of experiencing all the craziness that comes with the baby in my tummy life. PRAISE God for all of you not giving up...and for a lot of me a shoulder to cry on...and dropping to your knees in prayer for us! I love you all......PRAY NOW....for a healthy baby....pregnancy....birth....and life....that Michael and I can be the best parents for our miracle....that we'll step aside and let God do the work.
