As cliche as it is, I wanted to share the things that I am thankful for. Things that are the obvious and the little secrets that little know about.
So here they are:
1. That I am forgiven and redeemed.
2. For my amazing husband that is so kind.
3. That is makes me laugh so hard and is always trying to please me.
4. For my grandma who is a strong wild woman that inspires me.
5. For my sister who likes to laugh and lets me entertain her.
6. For her wild spirit that gets me to do things that I wouldn't normally do.
7. For her listening ears and kind wisdom.
8. For my dad and Cynthia and her girls... they are so kind and are a blast.
9. For our health... we are so blessed.
10. That the family I've lost along the way are in heaven.
11. For my friends that are so wonderful and have become family here.
12. For the first time in my live, I feel as though the friends I have now will be the friends that I will have for the rest of my life.
13. For having a job that is good and dependable.
14. That I have a husband that wants me to fulfill my dreams and aspirations and supports them I think more than I do.
15. I have a car that is dependable and affordable.
16. I have an incredible mother in law.
17. That she teaches me to be strong and loves me like her own.

18. That I don't have to worry about when I can eat next.
19. That pain killers (Advil, Excedrin, Tylenol, etc. ) is easy accessible and affordable.
20. Band-aids are easy to find.

That is all that I have right now.

Oh the tongue~

Frank and I started this new thing, where daily we read the same scripture and then when we get home at night we talk about it. I really like it, I feel like we are moving together and becoming more of a whole.

Tonight I really prayed that the Lord would speak to me while i was reading. That He would move in my heart.

I read James 3. The tongue.... the scary chapter!
vs. 8, "restless evil, full of deadly poison."
Oh how I cringe!! I am so convicted of my tongue. I have wonderful girlfriends whom we all hold each other accountable to make sure that our genuine concern does not take the mean route, a husband that tells me to stop when it is just gossip (don't judge me please!).
I think about the hurt that I know I must have caused friends and family along the way. I think about the poison that has come out of my mouth that I know stung so deep... I am forever regretful!
I think of the wonderful friends and family that I have. Family that is not even blood that would do more than the blood. I think about them and how they are so wise. I wonder if they struggle like this.

She's not 69 forever!!!

I had a four day weekend the last weekend. On Thursday morning I got up, packed, kissed Frank good bye and headed for the mountains.

What I learned about Maw Maw this weekend:

1. My grandma likes uggs and in fact was about to buy a pair but went for a pair of bass fur lined calf height because they had a zipper.
2. She has had some crazy stuff happen to her.
3. No matter how old you get, you always refer to your true wild woman roots once past the age of 80.
4. The guessing game is over, I finally know how old my grandma is!! 69 does not last forever!!
5. Her new best friend is west Jefferson may be the funniest woman that I have ever met... did I mention that she's 90 and is dating!!! (and by that I mean several men!)
6. Edith, maw's best friend, goes all over and knows everyone in town. She even is going to the sports bar for lunch this week!!!

Over all, West Jefferson is a fun place to visit. But mostly, Maw's house around 7pm is even better, you get to hear of wild stories from these two wild women!!

I know I've been a total slacker about the blogging thing... I'm sorry readers!! Life has just gotten a little crazy around here! Let's start with the "to do list" that has been waiting for checks...

#2: Done... I did it. I took the plunge and donated my hair to locks of love. This is the best picture that I could find with my hair gone. I got a cute little bob and am ready for it to be long again. I got the thank you card from Locks of Love the other day and it made me tear up. I'm so thankful that I am healthy. I have no real health issue and have a full head of hair (frank may dispute based on the bathroom floor...).

#9: Buy a 4 door car. I did it... and not only did I get a 4 door car, but I got a Jeep! I think that my mom would die laughing because it took be 10 years to finally get one. I love it. I love have a tail gate, 4 doors (which means no more crawling to the back... literally). I don't have a picture of the one that I have specifically, but here is the Jeep picture!!

#21: I started my new job about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I am back in property management, leasing again. I thought that I would never do it. I love it. The company is so much better than the last and the people here are so much sweeter! I love it. I love getting people set up with their new home, marketing and meeting new people everyday...

#18: I don't want to write about this one, but it's such a testiment to the Lord's faithfulness. Frank and I have been through the ringer financially since we got married. We have trusted the Lord and he has been good to us. We have given him our first fruits and in return, I can say that life is good right now. We still have to be oh so careful, but we are making it!
