A Favorite Of Mine

Enjoying a frozen butter bear coffee from Biggbys. I would say I'm a bit crazy to get frozen when it's 28 degrees outside but oh well. :)

I can't thank you enough friends for your words of encouragement on my last post. I truly am beyond blessed. :)

Just One Of Those Days

Have you ever had a day where it feels like nothing goes right? Well today was one of those kind of days for my mom and I. The kind of day where you feel like everything is fast paced and you can't keep up. The type of day that you feel like you're the only one with something wrong while everyone else's day is wonderful. In times like these it's far too easy to feel discouraged.
I sent a text to my brother and thought I would share it with you in this little space of my own.
From my brother "I hope your day went well. :)"

My text: "Thanks, It's been a horrible day. haha Dad's car needs to go in because it sounds like the exhaust is so loud but mom took the jeep in because the air bag light kept coming on and they said $500 to $1000 depending on once they opened it up. It would be one of two problems. Mom said to hold off because Dad's car needed to come in. They asked about doing an oil change and found out it needs back brakes, rotors, two tires which would be $500 and some dollars. Just called after taking off rotors. Found leak that now adds $226 more dollars and Dad's needs to go in still. What a day! Never seem to be able to catch up."
The phone wouldn't stop ringing and so many other things were going on throughout the day that it was just one of those days.
In life we go through things and at times it feels like nothing goes right. I am so thankful to be surrounded by a loving family who is always there to encourage and be there for me and friends that I can just go to and share.  I know that no matter what Jesus will get us through anything. That is a promise.
I had two songs going around my head throughout the day and felt encouraged.
Forever Reign by One Sonic Society and Everybody has those days by Jessa Anderson. We sang Forever Reign this past week at church and it's one of my favorites. :)
So if you're having one of those days, know that you aren't alone and you'll get through it. :)

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Might I say I have the best Daddy in the whole world? His birthday happens to be today.  I'm so thankful to have such a wonderful Dad. Once he got home from work the celebration began. Talking, opening presents, out for an early dinner, home for singing Happy Birthday and eating cake. My Mom and brother had to be on their way to work after the yummy cake. Sadly my other brother is away at school and couldn't be here. This coming weekend the festivities will continue as we get together with family to celebrate several birthdays.

I took Dad out for three games of glow bowling. He beat me every time. :)
