More of the Same
Here are a couple more cards that I have not posted yet. I think they are two more rejects! :)
I haven't made anything in a few days! I have worked on stamping my images in my stamp binder. The past two nights... I worked on wrapping presents, etc! I am done with that as of today... woo hoo!
I always have the best intentions of wrapping everything so neatly and by the time I wrap 4 or 5... I am just slapping that paper on or trying to find a gift bag in my stash big enough to fit whatever the present is! :)
One of these days I am going to have it all together and do it all 'right'! :) Ha...
This month has just flown by... I can not believe that Christmas is just a couple of days away! It just doesn't feel right! I am almost sad because with my health events... I feel like I have just let everything get by me and haven't done much to make it feel like Christmas around here! Plus... my husband has been working at the office everyday and almost every night lately so it really doesn't make it feel Christmasy when he is working so much!
Anyway... enough of the pity party! :)
On another note... I am so blessed! :) I truly have the best blog friends and IRL friends and family! I have received several gifts and cards in the mail from you guys. I won't go into who and what but... you know who you are! Thank you Thank you Thank you!
I am still trying to make sense of everything that has happened this last month! At times I find myself asking... did I make a big deal out of nothing? I mean... in like 3 weeks after finding out I had cancer... I had surgery and was out and about again!
I know I didn't make a big deal out of nothing! I know that I just serve an AWESOME God!!
I have had two people... one friend and one family member... tell me that God specifically spoke to them and told them to do something for me! One was at an inconvenient time to be doing what God told them to do. The other is a HUGE thing that I won't discuss! Both of these things were just wonderful!
I tell you that because I don't remember anyone ever telling me... hey... God basically made me do this for you. I didn't want to... I didn't have time, etc... but God specifically and audibly told me to do this for you! Wow... I cannot tell you how loved I feel! I feel so unworthy and yet so thankful for grace and mercy and that God loves me! I just can't describe how hearing that God spoke to people on my behalf... has made me feel! Just Wow!!
I am doing really well physically and mentally and emotionally! Michael and I have even talked about how even though we wanted another child... the fact that we know now that this unit of 3 is our family... is exciting! It is exciting to know for sure. No more well... we might not want to do that because we may have another child. I feel like we can move forward with whatever... simply because... we know! I don't know if that makes sense but... it does in my head! :)
Well... sorry for the rambling! I haven't rambled in a while. Mainly because I haven't been blogging much! I think the holidays just have everyone busy!
If you are still with me... there are still a couple of days to play along with the Everything But The Kitchen Sink challenge!! Don't want to miss out on a chance to win an awesome prize!
Hope you all enjoy your Christmas festivities over the next few days! I intend to do another post before Christmas but just in case... Merry Christmas! I love you all!!
