Our Last Day Together

Well, today was my last day of watching my nephew for a while. I don't think it's really hit me yet, but I think it will once I start this job tomorrow morning. Anyway, I definitely took my camera today and made sure to take LOTS of pictures. I won't bore you with them all, just the emotional ones ;) And trust me when I say, I took plenty more than what I'm sharing!

playing in his crib.

I had just told him "NO!"

I get extremely sad when I think about not seeing Caleb the majority of days in the week! I knew the time would come at some point when I wouldn't be able to watch him anymore...I just never thought about how hard it would actually be to leave him. I didn't cry like I thought I would today, but about lost it when he just laid his head on my shoulder while I was holding him. I don't even want to think about the fact that there won't be any moments like that anymore....not for a while anyway.....


I AM A CHRISTIAN. I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, & mind. God has really blessed me more than I could ever imagine, but the truth is that Satan HATES me!! I face struggles & temptation every single day of my life; but no matter what happens, I still strive to do the will of God. Because I put my faith & trust in God, He has provided relief for me & my family time & time again! God never fails to comfort & remind me of His promise that “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). There have been countless times that I did not deserve God’s grace & should not have been granted mercy. But He has granted me mercy & forgiveness, as well as goodness & grace -- all for the purpose of sharing it with those I meet along the path of life. Some days are better than others, but you always have to remember to keep pressing on! Keep praising HIM & He’ll never fail to bring you through the storm.
