NEW JOB HERE I COME!

We have been praying hard lately for an answer to our prayers and God has blessed us. I am currently at a job that is only part time which makes it hard to save for our adoption.

I am so excited I am starting a new job!

This new job is going to be amazing! I am going to be the office manager with a new company that is coming to town. The headquarters is located in Seattle Washington so I get to fly there for 2 weeks for training. Now to find a job that is so flexible and actually cares about family is a true blessing. We have the perfect set up now. The days that I will be working I will have family watching our little one. I love that we have a beautiful and close family and friends to help us. I didn’t want to put our little one into daycare for I wanted my family and friends to enjoy our little blessing and I want to be there for our child. This job is going to allow me to just that. I get to be mommy and enjoy it. I am so happy to have what feels like an up on our crazy roller coaster life!

It is so nice and refreshing to get a new start in life sometimes. I feel this is going to be a good year. It has had its ups and downs and we are only in March but I just feel that this is going to be a good year!

Thank you GOD!!!

Revelations 3:8

When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go, only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He’ll catch you when you fall, or He’ll teach you how to fly! ‘The power of one sentence! God closes doors no man can open & God opens doors no man can close..

~~~ VALENTINES ~~~

We had a wonderful Valentines this year! We know of this little cabin in McCall that we have rented last Valentines and it is the cutest! It is only $50.00 a night and it is the most amazing small little cabin. It is very cozy and modern. Everything about it is small but very romantic. The cabin has everything you need which makes it so nice. We made our own dinner and saved a bunch of money doing this! We got to bring our dog Newman who had so much in the snow. We also had fun and went to the Gold Fork Hot springs! It is so cool there and the water is so clean and warm. MMMM wish I was there now! Here are some pictures of our weekend.

My cousin Vanessa and her son Kelby came down to be with my aunt Linda since she was able to go home from the hospital yesterday. She is doing good still having some pain and difficulty eating but she is doing well. It was so good to see Vanessa. She has already lost most of her baby weight! She looks amazing! Kelby is an adorable little boy with cheeks that could just be kissed alllllllllll day! They are the softest cheeks ever. He is so adorable. She is such a lucky mom. She is so good with him.

WHEN I NEED A LIFT ME UP

THIS IS A SONG THAT I HAVE LISTENED TO SEVERAL TIMES IN MY LIFE. IT IS A SONG THAT HAS GOTTEN ME THROUGH A LOT OF THINGS IN LIFE LIKE LOSING 3 BABIES. I SING THIS SONG AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS AND IT MAKES ME FEEL SO GOOD. IT REMINDS YOU THAT BAD TIMES WILL COME BUT GOD DOESN’T COME AND GO HE IS CONSTANT IN YOUR LIFE. HE IS THERE TO HOLD YOU AT THE END OF THE DAY WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST.

Two months is too little
They let him go
They had no sudden healing
To think that providence
Would take a child from his mother
While she prays, is appalling
Who told us we’d be rescued
What has changed and
Why should we be saved from nightmares
We’re asking why this happens to us
Who have died to live, it’s unfair

[Chorus]
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was when everything fell
We’d be held

This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it and
Let the hatred numb our sorrows
The wise hand opens slowly
To lilies of the valley and tomorrow

[Chorus]
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was when everything fell
We’d be held
[Bridge]
If hope is born of suffering
If this is only the beginning
Can we not wait, for one hour
Watching for our savior
[Chorus]
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was when everything fell
We’d be held
We’d be held

This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was when everything fell
We’d be held

This is what it means to be held…..

!3-4 WEEKS TO GO!


Vanessa and Casey

My cousin Vanessa and Casey her husband are pregnant with their first baby and it is so exciting. We had a baby shower for her a couple of months ago and it was so cool to see her belly. She was carring pretty high but they tell us it is a boy. We got to see the ultra sound pictures. Vanessa and Casey her husband live in Washington and it is hard because we don’t get to see them but at least we get pictures! She went to the doctor and he said that baby Kelby is going to be coming in about 3 – 4 weeks. By the way I love the name KELBY that is such a unique name. So soon, it feels like yesterday we found out she was pregnant. They are estimating that Kelby will weigh around 8 pounds! He sounds like a healthy little boy. Casey and Vanessa are so excited and I am sure kind of nervous but they will make great parents.

Here are some pictures for you!

Here is Vanessa, Me, Maddox (nephew), Erica (sister), and my mom.
