Shifting Change..Walk by Faith

Lately I have been spending about 5-6 hours a day studying for Real Estate.  I have not taken much time till now but I have realized recently that when school is done, mommy is going to be working. This will be the first summer I have not had the privilege of being home with my kids.  Kinda hit me thinking that I may need to find day care for Grace.  That makes me sad. I know many moms have had to do this. But for me I have not had to use day care for my job for any of my kids. I have been very lucky I could take them to work with me the 12 years I had my dance business. Not to mention summers off. Life will definitely be shifting & changing around here and I for one honestly do not know if I am ready for that. I treasure being home for my kids and I know for a fact they love me being here because they tell me often! I know my husband also appreciates me being here and always available. With him working in another city it pretty much all falls on me. But I believe God is also working on a new plan for him as well. Right now I know a lot of work is happening, but with out all the work there can not be the changes that we need to have. I know and feel that right around the corner absolutely everything is going to be falling into place.  

I'm excited that I am on track with my on line real estate courses and tests. I am almost done with the on line and will be in class in just 2 more weeks. It is so much harder than I ever imagined it would be. But I pray it is all worth it. I really felt God leading me in this direction when other doors just were not opening. I need to be doing something I love to do, and I believe this is something I would enjoy. I do hope however that this summer I can work some part time hours, or maybe have Fridays off. I don't know how that works, but I sure hope it will all work out for me. 

For now I will just focus on what I need to do to get through the studies, I need to trust the process will all fall into place!!!

Updates on my loves

Of course a mother wants her children to be completely healthy. Our health is so important!  If everyone is just healthy, this mommy is happy!  This year has been a huge challenge in that area. First my 15 year old daughter that was diagnosed with Crohns Disease and that was a difficult thing to comprehend.  But, since then I believe she has been healed and is doing wonderful!! She is also stronger as well, and is so close to God. She really counts on Him, and knows He has great plans to prosper her with a bright future!!

This fall, my son was diagnosed with SVT (Super Vantricular, Tachycardia) a heart condition where the heart has extra circuits that can make the heart go up to 250 beats per minute.  That's Fast! He had surgery a couple months ago but as time has gone on apparently the surgery was not a total success. Our doctor here has now referred us to the Mayo Clinic in Mn. One of the best heart centers around. We are excited to meet with the doctors there. I feel very hopeful that they will be able to correct this problem. For now he is on heart medication to regulate his heart. Mean while it breaks my heart to see that my children have had to go through such trials. We have all learned we need to lean on God even more and come together as a family. Right now we are waiting for that referral to come. I really hope we hear something this week. Mean while Bailey is feeling great, working as security, and loving snow boarding!! He is such a great kid.

 I feel so very blessed with these three great kids. I could not ask for any better! Thank you Lord!! Please watch over them and keep them safe always and forever! Help me to be a strong mother, wife and friend to every one. Help me to be strong Lord when I feel so weak! Amen
