Absence makes the heart grow fonder...

I have to keep reminding myself of this. Jeremy and I decided that moving me and the kids to my mom's while he finished his last year at CSUFullerton was the best option. It definitely made the most sense on paper. And we figured it would be good practice for deployments. It's been really tough though. We see each other as often as we can...far more now that haunt season is over. And we have been blessed to have him here with us since Thursday of LAST week. It has really been great. He has to go back tomorrow, but there are only 3 weeks left in the semester. Then he'll be here with us from Dec 16 til Jan 22!! We can't wait!

What are YOU thankful for??

In a world where we can so easily get caught up in the day to day chaos, it's important to take the time to think about what we have. So much is taken for granted. What ever happened to appreciating life and everything, and everyone, in your life?! I challenge everyone to come up with at least one thing a day that you are thankful for, even if it's silly. Get yourself back in the habit of recognizing the beauty in our world.

Today I am thankful for Pinterest. There are so many creative people out there (I am NOT one of them) and it's such a blessing to be able to get ideas like this all in one place.
