Overwhelmed BUT Blessed

  • I finished seven days without the internet, drinks and dessert I actually felt good after. Seven days away from Facebook, Twitter, etc is bliss. My goal next year is to do a liquid fast.
  • I had so much time that week which I spent reading (I finished 4 books!), bonding with my little boy, and preparing myself to be an effective homemaker.
  • A couple of prayers were already answered even before prayer and fasting. My brother called to say he's giving me a phone - a Nokia E75. Another one is a job (a project) was being offered to me. It is exactly what I do at my former job but the best thing is I could work from home.
  • I am now without a househelp. I told my husband that I chose the more difficult road BUT I am more at peace. I have become more prayerful because of it.
  • Jed celebrated his 32nd birthday. We ordered our favorite, crabs. :-)
  • I am suddenly fearless. Found myself driving (I haven't touched a steering wheel for almost a year) one Saturday evening for a girl's night out. Yes, I still have a social life. My dearest husband stayed at home to look after Javi.
  • Jed and I had a massage right here at home. It was heaven! Again, I have not had a massage since I found out I was pregnant.
I love my life. It's not perfect but the Lord has been taking very good care of us.
