Trying to keep my promises....haha!

I am trying to keep my promises on the entire blogging thing...LOL! So what's up today. Today I have been busy...SUPER busy! I have to say huge shout out to my parents for being there to help me the past two days. I have had several very important meetings and lots of decisions to make. They are awesome! Also a special thanks to my hubby. He has been wonderful lately. So supportive and I am so happy to have him involved some in my business. I have to admit that it was super nice working along side him all day yesterday!

We had a spectacular lunch today at Zamorah's in Simpsonville. I just love that good old soul food. The best meat and three around....we splurged and bought three different pieces of cake to try them all. We had red velvet, chocolate, and Italian Creme. All three were WONDERFUL!!!

I had a couple of meetings this evening to but one of them was for church. I just love the ladies on the ministry team at Grace. It is an honor to serve along side them. They are always so encouraging and I am SUPER excited about all that God is going to do in the upcomping weeks/months through our new study!!!

Well, that is a brief little update on little ole me. For those of you who follow me and are believers. Say a little prayer for me. I have lots of VERY important decisions to make and I need lots of wisdom, strength, courage, and clarity! For now....for all you fall lovers out there.. enjoy this fall weather!

playing catch up

Well, I know, I tend always write on my blog and make a bunch of promises I that I will continue to blog and then I never do. I have decided that it is for sure the thing that I need to do! I think it is somewhat theraputic to blog and so I shall continue. I am not really going to try to play catch up but maybe just go through the past week.

This past week has been somewhat of a challenge. I am faced with several changes and I have decided to take the motto of Matt William's opening remarks in his message last week at Grace Church that "challenges equal opportunities". Now don't get me wrong, these challenges are for sure opportunities and I am excited but at the same time faced with all the emotion of it all.

In the mean time, I am enjoying living life. Lately, my little Bleeze has been a real treat to homeschool. Eli is at the point where he does a ton of independant study but Bleeze has to have the one-on-one attention right now. He cracks me up. I am reallys starting to notice the differences in their personalities. He is just so "matter of fact". He keeps us laughing that is for sure!

One thing I have picked up on Eli is that he is truly growing into a man. On a recent trip to the lake I saw he take such a leadership role and jump in and help his Dad with real "man work" he is not afraid of a challenge and I truly am starting to admire him for it! He is an amazing boy that is full of passion for life and the people and things around him.

This week I did get to enjoy a girls night out with Candy at Salon 864 & Boutique. If you haven't visited there you have got to soon! So awesome! We enjoyed all the pretty clothes, jewelry, etc. and lucky Candy won the door prize that night!! Wow! I also enjoyed dinner and Target run with my buddy!

I also enjoyed 17 different meetings for the LOOM. I am excited about all the upcoming events at the LOOM and can't wait for this upcoming week! We had spectacular weekend. Read all about it here www.theloomatcottonmillplace.blogspot.com.

Today we enjoyed a little "time-out" and spend some time as a family up at the lake. Tommy, has had yet another ebay adventure and got us another new boat...LOL! He just trades off and on all the time. It is really funny!!!I really enjoyed today's ride though. (just wonder if we will have it in the spring (probably not) if he sees another opportunity, it will be out of here) LOL!!!

Oh me... so for now... I am heading to bed. Gotta get back to showing my gratitude so I am going to show my gratitude now before turning in and then off to bed. Early morning tomorrow and an exciting week ahead.

So Grateful for....

God- He is my everything

Jesus- For saving my soul

GRACE (there is nothing else to say about it...there is no other word for Grace but Amazing)

Tommy- other than God...he is truly my rock. He keeps me level headed and is always there for me.

My boys- they keep me laughing and I fall more in love with them everyday. (they are also great workers and very patient with their mama)

Sweet hugs from my sweet niece this weekend and hearing her say "sit, sit assy" LOL!!!

Trips to the lake....to just lay back and take in all of God's wonderful creation and be so "grateful" for just God being who he is!!!

Oreo cookies (no matter the shape) I splurged and had some! LOL!!! (and milk)
