I have been blessed


After feeling uninspired for nearly a week, it seems like now I am over flowing with things to write about...other than the "video game wars" that have been going on in my house, things are looking pretty good. I mentioned last week that I had some good news, and today I found out for certain that it was actually happening! I have been applying and interviewing for a few positions over the last few weeks and I am so excited to say that I have found a new job!!! :) I had to have a background check and get finger printed, but I was informed today that everything cleared and I should be starting on Monday!!

I am so thankful to the Lord for giving me this opportunity and I am hoping that it will lead to bigger and better things later on in my life. I was scared and worried about finding a job, but I prayed about it and asked God to put me where he wanted me to be. The Lord always provides when you go to him for help, and I am so happy to have gotten the job I really wanted! On another happy note, my husband and I had a great night once I managed to pull him away from the video games....I made us a fabulous dinner of pork chops, mashed potatoes & gravy and a salad with hot house cucumbers. It was delish and my hubby loved the pork chops. He bragged about how well i cook to his Dad, and I'm sure he's giving me more praise than I deserve...but I'm just glad he likes my cooking. :)

Later on we watched "Julie & Julia" which is one of my favorite movies, (especially because I can identify with the story a lot since I write my own blog and also love to cook). I always feel so happy after watching that movie, its just one of those films that makes you feel good. :) I was craving something sweet so my hubby and I headed to sonic where I got an old fashioned root beer float and a foot long chili dog. It was pretty amazing!

After we watched the movie my husband and I were talking, and he said something that really made me smile. He told me that even though he complains a lot about things in life and with the military, that he is really, very happy with our life together. It melted my heart when he said, "Our life isn't perfect, but its still pretty great." Thats why I married this man. He always knows how to make me smile and be thankful for what I have, and right now I couldn't be more grateful for the many blessings in my life. :)

  7. Congratulations on the new job! That is quite exciting! And I was about to comment on your last post about the video games. I don't understand them either. Why do men get addicted to such crap? It's good that you set ground rules... and it sounds like they are beginning to work =]
