Blessings

5/24/12
So life has been kind of tough on me lately. You’ve seen my posts. Pregnancy emotions running wild. Financial struggles, husband working a lot, etc. You’ve read the sob stories. Ha. Well, thankfully I am breathing again and my emotions are a little bit better. This has been a good week and God is pouring blessings down. Obviously He is good all the time and whether I’m getting “blessed” or “not” doesn’t change His goodness. Also, I know that my view of blessings can be different, at times, than God’s view and I sometimes don’t see them until later. 
ALRIGHT ALRIGHT…..blessings!! Here’s my little list of things for the past couple days!!
1. Making these AWESOME headbands and hair clips. I love MOPS. It has been a blessing to me this year. I have been wanting to learn how to make these and now I know!

2. A neighbor of ours had a mattress and box spring in her garage. Well, we needed a box spring for a queen mattress someone graciously gave us last year. It’s been sitting on our full size box spring. Yikes! So they sold it to us for $30.00!! It pays to be nosy and ask sometimes. Hehe. Anyways, our bed frame didn’t extend to a queen size like I thought it would. So I decided to ask again, and see if they had a bed frame. Well, they did and it had a headboard and the shebang……

Leather……and we are talking FREE. Yes, they gave it to us for free. Can you believe it?! Here it is without pillows on it. It’s amazing. I am so grateful. 
3. A dear friend of mine, who lives in another state, wrote me and said she wanted to get that chandelier I need (want) for Abby’s new room. Bam. Wow. What generosity from friends! I am overwhelmed. So this is one she had picked out to buy for me….and it’s lovely. Matches perfectly. 

4. I am also thankful for all the amazing deals I’ve found at garage sales. Here’s another item I have made-over for Abigail’s room. I like it! I am currently working on her night stand and will post pics later. 

5. Oh yes, another blessing is another friend who is going to watch Abigail a whole day for me next week. She volunteered and it is very nice. 
6. Going to dinner last weekend and a movie with my in-laws. It was fun to go out with them and have parents that treat these fun outings 🙂
7. Having wonderful friends and neighbors to hang out with on hot days with kids running around.

8. Having an amazing doctor to go to this pregnancy. The place I went last time was good but this blows me away every time. I have never had such efficiency at a doctor’s office as this place.  My average time at appointments is about 20 minutes in and out…yup. Start to finish! The doctor is wonderful and I couldn’t be happier. Also, my ultrasound is scheduled!!! 3 weeks and we’ll find out the gender!!

There are many more blessings I know I am forgetting but these at least give you a taste of my life…just in the last week or so!

  1. I've learned it's not so horrible to be broke. It's the only time you truly get to see God not only provide for needs, but all sorts of wants too! I hate that you guys have to go through this stressfully tight time, but I'm excited for you to experience God being Daddy. Way awesome bed, by the way! Woot!
