22 days ago.

Well, I slacked off again. I cant' keep up with my own life to jot down a few things daily.

Since my birthday, I've been pretty busy. We are on a solid routine and it feels good.

Monday: I stay at home with the Brodie B all day and clean house/wash clothes.
Tuesday: I work and Brodie stays with his Granny at the flower shop. Chey has cheer practice.
Wednesday: I work from home. Chey has a game.
Thursday: I work and Brodie stays with his Granny at the flower shop.
Friday: I work from home.
-We pick Cheyanne up from school everyday and usually eat at home each night.

LIFE is finally getting stable and on track. My new job is going great and I'm so happy to be starting new in my life. 

We went to see Amanda & Jareb in Charlotte last weekend. It was nice to finally see where she lives and visit her church. Elevation was everything I imagined it to be....good enough to move my sister 4 hours away.  Brodie had a bad experience in the nursery (panic attack that equaled a nose bleed because mommy left him with strangers), but other than that it was a great experience.
Me, Brodie, Mama, & Daddy went and they were so sweet to us while we were there.

I've learned in the past few days to trust God more and more.  It is easier said than done to place everything in His hands and not to worry. Worry should be my middle name.  I've always worried...about everything....everyone. SO when it came time to worry about my own, I really struggled.  Worry had consumed my every thought causing me to ALMOST fall into a depression.  BUT God has made a way for me....he has shown me that I can let go. Now, I still have my moments and worry BUT its nothing like before. I'm thankful. Phillip and I are in a season on restoration. We've been through so much these past few years. I know its all in preparation for what's coming and I'm praising Him.  I'm declaring double for our troubles & also double for the people that have helped us and the ones that we affected.

We celebrated Cheyanne's 13th birthday last night. TODAY is her birthday!  Happy Birthday sweet girl!

I'll post pics later.

Today's my birthday!!! Whoo hoo.  

It snuck up on me. This year flew by.

27 was a tough year but it was good too. Lots of happy memories but some really bad ones.

I lost almost everything but gained so much more.

I've figured out true humility and leaving my pride behind.

God kept taking me to this scripture this year:

My treasures are not in wealth but they are in the smile of my little boy, a husband who is behind me always, a god daughter who adores me, brothers & a sister that know I love them, parents who know just what to say/do to comfort me, in laws that love me like their own, health, joy, peace, and a true relationship with my Savior.

This year molded me. I survived the storm and came out stronger than ever. 

I'm leaving 27 and looking ahead at 28. This year is going to be my year.

We are leaving Pelicans Point and headed home. Dinner was so good. Brodie loves the water.

Cheyanne was with us too. It was a nice, quiet, and relaxing dinner with my family.

Labor Day

Sunshine & Family.

We went to Aunt Glenda's.

-me, Phillip, Brodie 
-Aunt Nancy & Shelley, & Uncle Trey
-Matt & Heather
-Mama & Daddy
-Uncle Tobby
-Uncle Roger & Aunt Penny

We grilled hamburgers and hotdogs and sat outside while the kids played in the pool.


Spending the afternoon with Kayla & Kaleb is always fun!

They got in the pool, played in the yard, & then the kids + me, mom, Glenda, & Tobby went to McDonalds. We were there until 11 or so letting them play.

Fun day.

is one of those days that is good.

My mind is clear and my heart is happy.

I feel complete with my family.  

I do miss my brothers & sisters. I can't believe they are miles & miles away from me.

Thank you lord for peace. I needed it today.
