It's Picture Time!

Today we have our appointment today to get our taken for our parish directory. Apparently, instead of the usual sit, smile, have a whole photo shoot! So today is the first time we are having a "portrait session"! Haha, it should be interesting! I'll post later to let ya know how it goes!

I am the luckiest.

Today I was asking Michael "Do you know how lucky we are?" and he replied, "How lucky?" and I said back " The luckiest." It made me think about the day we got married, and the song we danced our first dance to. It's a song called "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds. It's beautiful and comes about as close as any song can to explain how we feel about each other. Now not only are we the luckiest to have each other but to have such a precious child. I'm reminded that more and more every day. Charlie was spitting peas in my face and laughing while I growled at him, and it makes me realize, I am the luckiest. :)

God is sooo so so so good!

My boy covered in peas!

Here's a link to a video that has the song with the lyrics. Enjoy!
Ben Folds: "The Luckiest"


So, I just spent almost 2 hours of my day going to the doctor so they would write a letter of appeal to the insurance company to get me covered. UGH! It just cost me $104 to get my finger pricked...not a happy camper! Anyways, let's hope it does th trick and gets me covered. The insurance company wanted the cause of my anemia, and now I'm not anemic! We'll see...

God is good, insurance companies...not so much!

It is almost Thanksgiving (how???). Wow. It honestly doesn't feel like it's been very long since last Thanksgiving.  I was just thinking of what I could blog about, and I was thinking of how thankful I am for all the wonderful things God has blessed me with and I was hit with the realization that it's November. Times passes  so quickly. You hear that so many times, but it's SO true. Last Thanksgiving I was sick as a dog and couldn't really enjoy it. I was thankful for lots of things, but not throwing up all the time was NOT on of them. This year, it is! I am so thankful for my health, and my healthy baby, who is here with us!! I can't even begin to explain how amazing it is to have a child, a son. It still sounds a little funny. I have a son. Wow. :) The other day I was being silly and making faces and funny noises at Charlie and Michael said to me "You're a great mom." There's nothing better to me than hearing someone, especially my amazing husband (who is such an awesome father to my son). I am so lucky to have the ability to have a baby. As hard as it was to get through my pregnancy, I can only imagine how frustrating it would be to not be able to.

I have such an awesome family. I love each and every person in it. Each person is special and great in their own ways. I am so thankful for all the people God has brought into our lives.

I have been blessed with so many good things, and I'm undeserving. Life is great. Cherish it! :)

God is GOOD!
