Volunteer Mommy

I was a volunteer Mommy today at Gracie's preschool. It was fun to see her at school all day. I have to say, I have a great daughter! She is so smart and didn't get into any trouble! Such a cutie. I could have sat and watched her all day! I am proud to say she is mine! Miss Marci asked me if I would volunteer twice next week too! We missed Annie Saturday night since Gracie was sick but went last night for Family Home Evening. Darling play. Luke got all dressed up and looked so handsome! Such a great night! Tonight he is fixing dinner! I am one lucky gal! We got to watch Eddie one last time Saturday night before they move to Missippi. We sure will miss that dog! Such a sweet boy! Hope everyone is well and loving this fall weather!

I am loving this weather! Thunderstorms and rain last night and this morning. Fall is in the air! Doing laundry, vacuuming..trying to get the house clean while Luke and Gracie are at a show and then tonight we are going to Annie! I hope Gracie loves it! Luke and I are excited to take her to it! It has awesome reviews too! We get to watch Eddie tonight while Paul and Bobbie are out of town..things are good! I hope everyone is doing great!

Last night I went out with my cute friends Shauna and Lori to Cafe Sabor and then we went and saw "I Don't Know How She Does It"...it was cute. So good to get out with the girls every now and then!

Thank You

I just wanted to thank everyone for all of their thoughts and prayers this past week concerning Luke. He is doing much better now. Finally off of the IV and onto oral antibiotics! Infection is basically gone and now it's a matter of keeping it gone and getting his strength back. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by such amazing people! Thank you!!!!

This is one of my favorite poems and the past few weeks I truly felt like I have been carried. So grateful for family, friends and for my Savior.

Footprints in the Sand

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”

The Lord replied,
“The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you.”
