Life Keeps On Keeping On

13 Sep

Our life has just kept on going.  As much as I have wanted it to slow down, it hasn’t.  There hasn’t been a reason for me to want it to slow down except I have been battling some very severe depression.  You may or may not understand, but it is the kind of depression that makes you want to crawl under your bed and hide from the world….even if you have the world’s greatest husband and kids (like I do)….the most understanding and caring parents and friends (like I do)….and the co-workers that worry about me more than I could ever imagine (like I do).  I have more to be thankful for in my everyday life than I know where to begin….I have an amazing God that gives me trials that He knows will test every fiber of my being, but He also knows I will come through better because I went through them leaning on Him….and I have family and friends that keep pointing me to my great God and telling me that my eyes need to stay focused on Him during these hard times, that he is the *only* way to get through these times….and I have a church that is willing to stop and pray for me when I am struggling.  I have more blessings than I could ever deserve….and I am so thankful for every single one of them!!!

Through all of this, our life has kept on going….we keep going to work…the summer has rolled on…Girly Girl made a week long trip to NC to visit her grandparents…we travelled the next week to NC to celebrate the 4th of July…we watched the kiddos take part in some day camps…we travelled to Huntsville and went to the Space & Rocket Center…the kiddos have started back to school….and we have moved (again….for the last time, we hope!)

This fall holds quite a few fun activities for us too!  We plan on watching lots and lots of Auburn Football, win or lose.  Girly Girl has some gymnastics meets we will be attending.  We will be, hopefully, attending a Renaissance Festival in Huntersville, NC, in November…and will be visiting family for Thanksgiving in North Carolina.

I have been slow about updating the blog for a while, I hope the two or three of you who keep up will understand why.  I hope to have some pictures of the new house and what we are up to blogged (like the new verb?!) soon….and then we’ll see how things go.

Here’s to a great football season, too!!!  War Eagle!!!!
