Gods hands

I have been reminded in many small ways recently that there are many things that you just have to let go of. To leave in Gods hands and know that he will take care of it. I wanted to share todays lesson because it really taught me more in just a few hours than all of the small hints lately. I left the house at 1130, to pick the short people up from school (a half day)....stop at the mailbox, and when I get back in my car, it wont start. Aaron comes home early from work and spends 4 hours trying to figure out what is wrong...(my engine is a bit smashed together, being a newer model vehicle) reminding me the whole time how much he hates working on my car, even though I like it a bit..(kody calls it my race car...its a bit fast, lol) Now after going through 4 likely culprits he can find no reason for the problem. When he gets home he tells me it may be the computer which runs a few hundred dollars, and if it necessitates a mechanic it may run $1000 or higher. Finally the waterworks start....its been a rough month, what with the break in and sickness running through the family....added to a pretty kidney infection......I was just done, I couldnt think of the fact that we would have to spend that much money on a car that we are trading in next month (yay! for no more car payment, lol) When he goes upstairs to get ready for school, the analytical side of my personality kicks in and I decide to search the internet for an answer. I stumble on a feature called the Pass Lock, a security feature that will shut down the vehicle if anyone tries to steal it.......The solution was to turn the car to on for 10 minutes...then restart it. His hands are wide open, his back far stronger than mine, there is nothing that I could do alone better than he. So my lesson for today is this....

Spending quality time with Husband=$70
Gas to and from the autoparts store= $10
The wrong part for my car=$93

Learning to hand things over to the big guy= PRICELESS

9 on the 15th!!

Such a sweetie,...had to share a picture of my surprise from Aaron,... this was followed by dinner at The Melting Pot,..and SHOES!!! lol......(admitted shoe addict)

This post is a bit late, lol.....but better than never and all. On October 15th, 1999....9 years ago, I met and fell in love with my dear husband. In a whirlwind of activity and emotion we met and married three weeks later, followed quickly by Kailee and Kody. The years have flown by when we weren't looking, lol. Yet here we find ourselves more in love than the day we met, and blessed far more than words could begin to explain. I begin my mornings with the rush to school, packing lunch, kisses and hugs all around. Afternoons full of housework and cooking for my family. Evenings of homework, laughter and giggles. The day ends with my best friend, who gives the very best hugs :-) I am so blessed to have another day just like it when I wake.

I thought I would include some video of them horsing around, as well as the one they filmed of the makeover they gave me,....yes I truly did let two small girls loose on my face with makeup...ack!!! But I have to admit, they did a great job!!
