I'm Baaaaaccckkkkkkkk!

Thanks for checking up on my ladies! I am doing well. I have been absent from the blogsphere sue to the fact that I was preparing for my g-pa's funeral. There is so much to talk about, and I have no idea where to start, so I will be breaking up the posts over the next couple days to spare you. ha!

First off, WHAT ARE YOU ALL DRINKING????!!!!! I have read tons of pregnancy announcements, and have counted about 18 of you expecting. A big congrats to all of you. Though I am extremely happy for you all and will keep you in prayer, I can't help but feel a little blue wishing I were in your shoes (hey! that rhymes! :-0). I am extremely excited to travel this journey to your expected end with all those that are expecting. By the way.....Marie is a great name (or Maria, or Mario) whatever suits your fancy. :-)

Hubby is still not working, but we are okay. I have had my moments of "how long will this last?", but I have to remind myself that God is still in control of everything and he meets our needs before we even know we need it. I must say I serve a NEVER failing God! I discovered last week that my last paycheck will only be for 4 days (cue pandemonium - picture all the teachers at my school going crazy - now picture me going crazy - got that picture? good)! Of course, I freaked out. Yes, we have the money to cover the shortfall, but I did not want to touch our savings that early. I kept saying though, "I'm going to trust him". On my way to work this morning, something told me to check the mail box (that still small voice? intuition?). Imagine my surprise when there was a check from my mortgage company for....................... exactly 5 days worth of pay! Yes. I could not believe it either! It took me a while.....cleaning my glasses, rubbing my eyes, holding it to the light....before I finally convinced myself that it was a real check. How good is God? There is no way anyone can convince me that he is not real, nor that he desires nothing but good for us. We apparently paid too much into our escrow account last year, and they are refunding 50% of the surplus. There I was getting ready to panic, but he was working it out for our good before I even knew I needed it. Thank you Lord for reminding me that you show up right on time!

I know Mother's day is long gone, but I hope you all had a peaceful day. My day was crappy, but I am praising God anyway for the good things. The 1st Mothers day after my first loss, was memorable, the second one, not so great. Despite that, God is still good and I cannot wait to see what he has in store for us.

I am healing nicely from the TAC. I am off the pain meds, I am now driving again, walking upright, sneezing, coughing, and the works with no pain. I go for my follow up next week and hopefully I can get an US to see the "anchor" that the Lord used the Dr.'s to place. Of course, I will keep you all updated.

I am catching up on blogposts, and will create a few more posts over the next few days about March for Babies and my trip to JA.

Be blessed, and thank you all for thinking of me and checking up on me.
Awaiting my expected end.
