I made it thought two long days at the office.... Addie brought me lunch yesterday and brightened my day with her smiling face! :)
Today we are hanging out all day .... Mommy bible study, shopping, and just playing at the house!
She is such a blessing and I have missed her all day long that i have been away from her...
I have had some sweet friends call and email me to encourage me through the transition....
I loved being able to be the one that got her all ready for the day today b/c dad has done it the past two days so Mommy could get ready and then play with the little baby girl for a minute before Mommy had to go sit in traffic!
Thank you for supporting me and I pray that one day soon I will be at home with her again.....

well today was my last day as a stay at home mom....
i report for duty at 0730 in the morning...SAD!
we had a great day.... i substituted in the 5 year old sunday school class and had a blast.... after church we went to lunch with some great friends and came home and took a NAP!
Mark had to work from 5-8 so Addie and I worked on getting our house posted and ready to list for sale ....
We also got all of her things together to go to Nay'Nay's house tomorrow while Mommy is at work and Daddy is playing golf....She is going to see G-ma Hill (i think)....
I pray everyone had a great day as we have... The sunshine and weather was amazing and helped keep a smile on my face!

I love Addie's Dad!

I wanted to let everyone know that Mark is so great with Addison and I love to watch him play and interact with her.... He takes her from me so he can spend more time with her and it touches my heart!! He told her before he left for a Union meeting that if he were going to be here for her bed time that he would do this and that with her.... (things he knew I had not planned on doing that she probably would enjoy if I would have) :)
He is so proud and he is a great DAD!
Addie got her 6 month shots today and she has a runny nose.... so she is really sad! :(
We are close to getting the house ready to be on the market so anyone that wants to buy a contemporary 3 bed 2 bath in Cordova...COME ON!! :)
Mark and I went to play tennis this afternoon and three tennis courts later i lost!
I am having to box up alot of baby stuff that she has already outgrown but I dont want to get rid of it until we are through having babies..... b/c i know i will need it again but it is so bulky to store!
enough of my whining!!!!
What about DAVID COOK??? He is going to win it ALL!!!
My vote still goes to BROOKE b/c i love her personality and simplicity!!! (if you are lost i am making references to American Idol)

On a more serious note I need alot of prayer for my relationship with my mother-in-law..... She is disrespectful and puts me down in front of our children.... I dont understand it but I want to just walk away and never speak to her but I know my husband needs me to have some sort of relationship with her b/c he loves her (despite all of her flaws)....b/c she is his mother.

Advice for all you single ladies..... You might love the man but make sure you check out all the people that come with him (parents, kids, exes, etc.).... I am speaking directly to my two sisters!!!! :)
have a great evening and i pray you all had a blessed day!

God comforts

I woke up this morning discouraged and exhausted emotionally....
God sent several people to me today to encourage me and to lift me up...
Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement....
Thank God for the body of CHRIST!
Things keep getting darker but hopefully we have hit rock bottom and can go nowhere but up! Brandon has moved to TX for the time being and I pray that he will take this time to reevaluate how he talks and defies the authority. His threatening and volatile attitude and actions have put our family in harms way. God is the only one who can change his heart... Mark is hurting and we need prayer in excess.....
We will go to TX in June and do a reevaluation of where Brandon is at to see if he can have some self control to come back home.....
I pray that God will strengthen mark and break Brandon through this period of separation.
Addie is not able to understand what is going on but she feels the intensity and hears all of the yelling ... it is not healthy and we HAVE TO CREATE A SAFE HOME.... Only God can change this bad situation... Please Lord work in our home beyond what we could imagine or request!

I am struggling watching my husband hurt over the dishonesty and evil presence in his son right now.... Please pray for God's strength for Mark... Pray for Brandon's heart b/c it is very dark and we dont understand why .... I know God allows valleys so we can cling to Him and watch Him bring glory to Himself through the darkness.... I pray that He will carry our family through some of these struggles.... I am struggling accepting that these things are happening to me but I am praying for peace that He has me right where I am for a reason.... THERE IS POWER IN PRAYER!

Today a lady in my bible study told us that her 4 year old daughter went to the doc monday with a fever and was diagnosed with Lukemia. Her world turned upside down in two days... i cannot imagine... i have held my daughter close today - Thanking God for her health and her life!
I am reading the 5 love languages of children and I pray that I am able to give Addie all 5 and emphasize in the ones that she will feel most loved by....
We are going to sit outside b/c it is a beautiful day!

The warm weather is welcomed! Addie loves being outside....
We had her pictures made today!!!! She is growing up so fast right before my eyes!
Brandon is busy into baseball and I am starting back work part time this month at the hospital.
Addie will be 6 months next week! We are so ready for the CROP, our trip to TX and FL this summer! See you then!
