I Read a Book

Recently I read a book called Redefining Motherhood. What a blessing it was to my heart! The author was so down to earth and real. The biggest thing I got from the book was that every little thing I do for my family, down to the tiniest insignificant thing, is worth it. It is all worth it. Mothers are bringing their children's hearts to the Lord. We are being Jesus with skin on. We are shoeing our life His perfect love. I feel so inspired after reading this book.

So my sister and nieces are here visiting. My husband left for work this morning and the girls woke up. Their poor momma. So I got up with them so she could rest. We are currently watching the Lorax. I always wished I had someone to help me when my children were young. So I don't mind. My kids are in school. I can nap later.

Feeling Very Icky

I have been ill since Sunday and today is Thursday. That is why I have not posted much of anything this week. This has been a terrible cold/flu type thing. Please be praying for me. Thank you so much!

A Wonderful Blog

Little House Living

I found a blog called Little House Living. It is wonderful. So full of ideas. I know I will visit this blog repeatedly in my quest to run my small home efficiently. She has such great ideas, I had to share them with you. Click on the link above to visit a post on her blog about decluttering.

More Time Lord!

     I just began a new chapter of my life. Yesterday I married a wonderful and Godly man. We had a tiny ceremony. I didn't even walk down the aisle. We just said our vows with a handful of family there. It was precious............and slightly comical. I started to get teary eyed and instead of crying in front of people, I started to giggle. My poor groom. He did smile but I can't help but wonder what was going through his mind. He asked later if I was a little uncomfortable being in front of everyone (even though it was a tiny group), to which I started laughing and said "Yes!"  I think he understood. I can be very shy.
     We are combining households this week. I am nervous. We will be living in a trailer. I have four children. So there will be six of us. Plus three cats. I know, we are crazy. But we are going to make this work. One thing I enjoy about my husband is that he tells me "My day does not start until I come home to you. I do not live to work, I work to live." This is a somewhat different concept than how I was raised. I was raised by two military parents. They both had lifetime careers in the USAF. I was taught that you did whatever you had to do to make a big career and make a lot of money. I remember my Dad saying once that anyone who likes on less than $45,000 a year is dirt poor and has no chance at happiness.
     Well I guess we are dirt poor. My husband and I made about $20,000 each last year and that was full time for both of us. I just recently went down to part time so that we could spend more time together. I am so glad I did. And yes, we are very happy. He has taken on a lot of debt by marrying me. I have a $2,000 credit card bill and over $40,000 in school loans for nursing school (which I was unable to finish due to an illness). We are going to have to be very creative to make all of this work. But, with the Lord's blessing, I know that we can. This blog will be about our lives. I am so excited to share it with you. I hope you enjoy.
