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!!

Love that first card, Kelley. So cute and clever! Your post (and I did read it all!) gave me goosebumps. I love hearing "God stories" and how cool is it that God specifically spoke to people regarding you -- and then that they heard, listened, and acted! You are one blessed lady! Have a fabulous Christmas!

Oh my, these are cute, Kelley! I have that Sassafras set, and I LOVE what you did with it!

I'm so glad to hear that God is playing a big role in your life right now. When bad things happen, He has a way of letting you know that everything will turn out for the best.

Merry Christmas! SO glad you are in my life, friend! :D

Merry Christmas!! Love that you are doing well!

Great cards as always, Kelly!!! I've missed visiting your always happy corner :) SO glad everything is coming along well with you. God is Awesome. I totally hear you about the wrapping business. I think the stress comes from not allowing kids or hubby see what your doing :) I miss blogging hopefully I'll get a computer soon :)

Happy Holidays!!!

God always lets us know we are special to Him when we need it most! Your story is so encouraging to me - I am so glad you were so blessed by people who listened to God and acted!It is amazing God takes those fragile moments or times and through His mighty power they become moments of mighty strength!

Blessings to you and your family this new year!
