Well hello! So, what started out to be just a regular Monday morning has turned out to be a...well.... I don't know what you'd call it really. My husband called me on my way to work, when he got off work. He said, well, I put in my two weeks notice! I was SHOCKED! I was sure he was staying in law enforcement. I am so nervous for him that I can't even been excited about it. I am so afraid of the decision he's made - I'm so afraid he's going to blame me for it in two years when he's tired of sitting behind a desk. I'm freaking out here. I am thrilled at the thought of having him home! Every night, going to church every Sunday, being involved in church together, DATE NIGHT, being at every practice and game. WOW! It's going to be just like I dreamed, I hope. My heart is racing it really is! I am so afraid that it's not the right choice. I did try to be as supportive as I could be. I got angry a few times but this last 2 weeks, I've been very supportive and told him to work whatever shift he needed, that Tucker and I would fine, that it would all work out. I am shocked that he took this other job. I am grateful to have a husband who knows how important family is, who can look back over the past couple of years and see how hard they've been and he can look back and see that what's important is being there for his family. WOW - God has blessed us, God is so good! God has thoroughly changed us! I just don't know what to say...
I am feeling better, thank goodness for antibiotics. I feel like a new me.
Saturday was a great day, I spent it with an old friend from school. Actually we hated each other in school! Funny. Our boyfriends ended up being friends and we met again in our early 20s. She was my party buddy, we did some WILD WILD stuff together. We sang Janice Joplin into the wee hours of the morning until we had no voice left and then we'd dance to the Dead till the sun came up all while balancing a Yagermeister bottle on our heads! Funny how different my life is now. Her's - not so different, mine, way different thanks be to God! Those times were fun, however, all the drama that comes with it SO not fun. The peace and joy that I have in my life now... completes me. Anywhoooo, we sat in her kitchen and talked ALL day, we were supposed to go to a street fair but we couldn't stop talking long enough to get up and go. It was so fun. Yesterday, church, got caught up on laundry. Tucker and I hung out and laid around all day. What a nice way to end the weekend! And for you Pam... this blog goes to show that God is working and can soften the heart and mind of even the most stubborn of men! Remain faithful!

I'm so glad you feel better-and that you had a great time Saturday with your friend.

And what did I tell you?!?! God can work on people! So, I am so glad Tim came around! How amazing! Don't be nervous about the future...just bask in the glow!

Here's how I deal with Rob: Because I know just what you're saying about how they can throw stuff up in your face later....

If he brings something up that he "did for me" or a decision he made "to make me happy," I say, "Have I told you how much I appreciate that and what a blessing it is to have a husband who is considerate of my needs? I am so blessed to have you." Then he is dumbfounded and can't keep griping. ;) Ya never know, it just might work on Tim, too. :)

Have a great week! Love ya, girl!

OOOOOHHHH!!! What a BEAUTIFUL entry! Thanks Holli, for sharing. God is good - ALL the time, even when He seems far away He isn't.

I've been so into the Word this past week. I prayed for God to bring people into my life to talk to about Him and He brought BOTH of my new next door neighbor (and one is Orthodox Jewish and said she wants to learn about the New Testament!!!).

He hears me. He hears me. Thanks for the reminder. I'm happy for you Holli! :)
