Woo hoo!!

I haven't cried in days!!! Hooray! Maybe the people at the water works plan finally got the memo! Life has been better this week. I have decided to "Let go and let God" and give it to him. I think I can fix everything but I can't so it is all His now. Have I mentioned that a growing number of our friends are having babies??? We went through this a few years ago also. However, now we have some friends on their second child and some on their first. It is exciting to share in this time with them. We also found out that we will have another niece or nephew. This will be #13 and we still have 3 siblings between the 2 of us that do not have kids yet. I am not complaining. In fact, it is fun having a large family and there is NEVER a dull moment!

Yesterday, I "talked" to Cross on the phone. Actually, I talked and he grunted and laughed. He thinks Auntie K is pretty funny. I asked him if he wanted to come visit Auntie K and Uncle Brad in Texas and he "told" me he did. I told him he had to put some pressure on mommy and grandma. He is growing fast and has a great personality.

The job search is still the same. Brad has applied for several positions but we haven't heard much. Thank you for the continued prayers. We know there is something out there for him, it's a matter of God's timing and the perfect position for him. I hope you have a blessed week, while I try not to stress out about the TAKS test. :)

When did this happen???

I have been a church attender most of my life. I have always been interested that cry over everything in church and wonder how they can be so emotional. However, I have turned into that person! I'm not sure if its because I went off my depression medicine or what! Everything is bringing tears to my eyes, and not little tears. Today I was talking to my friend about situations and how God never gives us more than we can handle. I believe this with everything that I am. However, sometimes I wish God didn't have so much faith in me!!! I'm trying to remain strong, as well as give all of these "situations" or "obstacles" to God. I've tried my thing and it's not working, so maybe I will have different results now.

I have been praying about a bible study for people my age for a while now. Tonight, for the first time, I went to the Young Adult life group. I had a great time. It was so nice to see people around my age and in different stages. There were married people, single people, expecting parents, and a wide variety of professions. I'm looking forward to going again next week. :) Well, it's late and I have to work tomorrow. Hopefully the water works will stop soon. Hope you are enjoying the spring weather.

Hello Spring!

I am loving this Texas weather!! We haven't had the ac on in almost a week! :) Life here is pretty good. Not too much to complain about. Brad is still searching for a job and we are praying for some doors to open up. I am continuing to think optimistically about the job front. He has been applying for tons of positions so maybe something will happen! :) I went off of my happy pills. I have been on them for about a year and felt like I didn't need them anymore. There have been some weird withdrawal effects and I have been on an emotional roller coaster but my emotions are beginning to even out. We are celebrating with all of our friends who are going to be parents! There are so many! We hope this spring treats you well and hopefully I will get better about posting. However, I feel like I say that every month.
