What's been going on....

As most of our close friends and family are aware of, Jeremy has been living and working in Myrtle Beach for the past 3 months and coming home on the weekends.  So, essentially, I have been a bit of a single mother throughout the week for the better part of 12 weeks.  Why didn't I tell you, Internet readers?  Umm, well, because I have an irrational fear of burglars.  Too many scary movies as a teenager.  ( just let me say that I sleep with a large metal baseball bat nearby if you've got any ideas.....).  So suffice it to say, April, May and June have been a doozy.  But, we made it.  And I have a total new appreciation for single mothers, working single mothers, and my husband.  Trust me,  if you ever get sick of your husband, send him away for weeks at a time while you manage a baby on your own.  It's a whole new meaning of appreciation.  (unless of course you secretly don't like your husband, ......but then, why are you married in the first place? hmmmmm.)
Anywho, we made it.  And we are so much happier because of it.  Sometimes God answers prayers in a way you never imagined.  So, when I asked him to help me find happiness in my life, I guess HE knew that they best way to do that was to show me how much my life could suck.  So, I better put on my big girl panties and start appreciating and loving what I got.  Because it truly is wonderful.
I am married to the man of my dreams.
I have a healthy, smart and beautiful baby.
I have a wonderfully supportive family.
I'm back to my goal weight!
We are going to build our dream home.
 and I am going to be gifted enough to be with my child-everyday.
I couldn't ask for more.  And I shouldn't.*

  On the day that I called, you answered me. You encouraged me with strength in my soul.
 -Psalm 138:3

*sorry this post turned into yay me! not my intentions.  Just feeling very grateful as we begin our new adventures and I guess I just needed to say that.
