Sun makes me happy!

I must say that the 70-80 degree weather is amazing! I used to tease Paul and tell him that if we lived in Florida I would probably be a better wife. I am beginning to think there is some truth to that. Although I don't think that Paul could stand the sun. I don't know if you can see it in the picture above but he had surgery on his arm to have some skin cancer removed. It is a huge yucky mess. He had one last year removed on the back of his neck that required 40 stitches. None the less...I love the sun!

I also love being outside reading my Bible and having a cup of Joe!! As I dig into the Word I am convicted more and more of my sin nature and how I have become so calloused. Oh how I pray that I would begin to mourn over my sin. A sorrow that leads to repentence and change of heart and attitude.

Now with this in mind....I am praying that God will help me to see our current situation as a blessing. One that leads us to the arms of Chirst. I haven't shared alot about our journey over the last year accept what we went through lossing my mother almost 1 year ago. I continue to process that as I miss her so much and still long to see her face to face. Now we find ourselves in a fork in the road as we seek God's provison and direction for our lives. We have come to a place of realization that we have to make some changes in our finances. I am sure we are not alone in this but it has come to a point for us to put our house up for sale. It is highly emotional for me because the whole reason we bought this house was to be able to take care of my mom and allow her some space of her own. It will be sad when we finally say "good-bye" to this house because it holds so many memories for me. My mom's room is untouched! Clothes, shoes, personal belongings right where she left them. It has been almost 10 months since her passing and I know that it is time to close that chapter in the book. This house has served its purpose! We must move on! Pray that we sell quickly and for our hearts as we leave behind precious memories with "MawMaw."

I know that God is all sufficient! God is with us and our hope endures!

Potty Training

Okay, so I knew that I was going to have to start sooner or later! But to be honest with you, it is easier to go places without having to worry about "going potty" all the time. Amazingly, Tanner decided that he was ready to "go potty" all on his own this weekend. So...I sat him on the potty and guess what happened! HE POTTIED!!!! I couldn't believe it. He "went potty" all day without a wet diaper. Even typing out d-i-a-p-e-r seems so weird because Tanner will be 3 in May. He truly seems too big to be in diapers anyway. So we are going to the store tonight to get pull-ups just in case he has a relapse.

So sad!!! My little boys are growing up! No more babies or toddlers running around the house. Parker will be starting Kindergarten in August. I just can't believe it!!! Where did the time go?
