Blessings

I have been amazingly blessed recently in all areas of my life.  I'm realizing that even the bad things are good things.

Our old van finally went KAPUT!! Our NEW van is kinda the most amazing thing ever.  :) We got a great deal on it, and it's sparkly, and has all kinds of handy little features that I never needed but love that it has. (now if I could just get Connor to stop taping random pictures in the view of my backup camera I'd be all set.

My health has been improving by leaps and bounds. I can't remember the last time I felt this good. I've been making little changes every few days leaning towards the greater good, and it's been an amazing transformation.

Two weeks ago I got an iphone. It was a love hate relationship for the first week or so but now I really love it.

On Paige's birthday we were out to dinner,  a total stranger came up thanked Daniel for his military service shook his hand and paid for our families meal. I burst into tears.  It was so touching.

I have amazing friends. I am truly blessed by the women in my life.   I know I can be a bit over bearing at times (it's my nature :)) but if I am anything I am a loyal friend. Once you are my friend (even if you've done me dirty) I have a hard time ever letting you go. I care, but I am realizing that something a very wise friend has told me several times is very true,  we all go through seasons in our lives. Each season is important, and different people migrate to us during theses times,  and some friends go into a different season at a different time than I do.  I spent a lot of time over the years fighting to freeze people in time, but now I realize that we are just in different seasons of our lives.  I'm still here for all my friends, and I know they still love me, we might just not see each other as much as we once did, and thats ok.  I am blessed to know that all of my friends past and present are still leaving a positive mark in my life. Relationships are two way roads though, so feel free to text me :)

I get to go by myself to Detroit for 4 days this summer. My amazing cousin Bridget is getting married and I get to be there to see it. I am so excited.

My brother is the coolest person I know. He really is.

I have a great husband, through all the ups and downs of life, 18 years later we are still fighting to be together and be a good happy positive influence on our kids. Pretty impressive if you ask me.

All of these fabulous things brought to me by and amazing God who loves me. Everything always works out, looking back in my life in the bad things have become good things. God is good all the time, and I am blessed.

My friend Kristen who is my concert buddy, my people, a constant source of strength. She is pretty awesome. (Even when she doesn't realize she's being awesome, she is) :)

We went and looked at a house the other day. The house I had posted about on my facebook.  The house was such a cute house on the outside. I was in love, I wanted the house, I wanted to make it ours somehow. THEN I saw the inside... yah... moving on :)

My reasons that I am happier right now than I could have ever possibly imagined.

Buying a house is a great goal for the New Year. Make sure that resolution has some back up with a life insurance policy. You can get a quick and easy quote from IntelliQuote in just minutes. Find out how little it could cost to keep (and protect) that home for future generations. http://bit.ly/GKA3ry
