exactly what I needed to hear...

Well the girls and I finally made it to Texas. It was a long weekend with packing, cleaning and way too many goodbyes. I can't put into words how difficult it was to leave Colorado. I never imagined that I would have friends like the ones I had to say goodbye to this week. Over the past 2.5 years we have shared so many memories, milestones, and just plain great times..I am going to miss them ALL SOOOO much! We also had to say goodbye to our hero, my Marky Mark. This time saying goodbye was SO much more difficult than it was the other 2 times. I love that man with everything that is inside of me and my heart is just hurting. It is hard not to think of the "what ifs" and for that reason, my heart was breaking as he walked away. I don't want to be sad and I definetly don't want our girls to be sad, but it is ok and we will be ok.

I start school on Tuesday, Jillian started Ballet class yesterday and she will also be going to Awana's on Wednesday nights. Both girls will go to Mother's Day Out while I am in school. Between all of those things, spending time with family and friends, my Pampered Chef business, and missing our boy, time will hopefully fly. My goal for this year is to finish up with school by the end of summer so I can be student teaching by the Fall. Please pray for this.

Your prayers are the best support for our family right now..and I thank you in advance for them.

I was surfin' the web today and found something with this verse on it, Joshua 1:9. I am sure I am seen and heard this verse many times before, but right now, it is exactly what I need to hear. So for the next year, this will be my life verse, it will be my strength and encouragment. We are a tough family and although this year is going to be rough, we will make it:)

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; Do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
