Day 16 Learning

 So todays daily prompt for post a day is learning. (I know second day in a row I am using a daily prompt, but it sparked a lot of thoughts in me.) 

I decided to take on this post a day challenge to give myself something I had to do every day.   I have learned that I’m not the type of person who does well without something to do. I’ve had very few times in my life were I haven’t worked and not working isn’t something I like. I like to work. To feel like I have accomplished something, anything!  To know that I was contributing in sone way. Something y’all may not know is that I was a preschool teacher for 10 years! I loved it! But like others before me, I got burnt out. It happens to the best of us. I knew I wasn’t making the money I needed to be making and wasn’t able to take care of my child the way I needed too. I have since learned that I can and have taken care of my son making a lot less. I’ve been learning a lot about myself since I have been hurt and can’t work. I’ve learned that some times it’s the little things in life that make you happy that day…

My little bit of happy today!

Some times it’s as simple as being able to fold or hang up a load of clothes by myself. Today it’s Finally sleeping. (Yes it was from like 5am to 3pm, but I finally slept for more than an hour or two.) I am learning  the hard way to wait. In the bible it says “Be still and know I am God.” Well, God has been teaching me how to do just that. He has answered prayers when I had nothing left besides faith that He would take care of it. I’ve learned that I have a few people that no matter what I can count on them. I’ve learned  that my son can and will step up and get things done. I’ve learned that I have to accept my new limitations and can in fact live with them. I’ve learned that even though I want something or someone, I am better off without it(them). I’ve learned that I can still lend an ear to listen and prayers to give. I’ve learned you know who your people are by how they make you feel when you are around them.

 I’ve learned that there are some ways I can still exercise. 

I’m on day 2

I’ve learned that sometimes life just takes Faith. Faith in God (or whatever you believe in). Faith in yourself and faith in those you love.

And I’ve learned that sometimes happiness is sitting in the sun writing a blog and thanking God for blessing me with another day. 

Love, prayers, and blessing my friends! 

Day 15

Today’s daily post post a day promt was : Fifty…..

Loads of clothes to be folded or hung up.

Like I have  fifty million things to do today and all I want to do is sleep. I did finally get about 4-ish hours of sleep before me and a friend headed to the local auto parts store to get them to hook that awesome little machine ttothe jeep to see what’s wrong with it. I need a new alternator soon. Seems part of mine is going bad and it’s easier to replace the whole thing verse that on part. So while this is not the best news, it could have been way worse. I am mildly worried now , instead of freaked out. I know this can be fixed. I am still worried about the money to fix it, but like God answered this prayer He will take care of the rest of it too! On this journey I am on in my life right now I have come to realize more and more that if you have faith and believe and wait… You will see God working in your life. I will praise Him in the hall way til He shows me the door that He wants me to go through. I’m learning. It’s His plan that truly matters, not mine. I can have fifty different plans, but until it’s God’s plan, it won’t work!

My favorite song got sang at church yesterday and it keeps going through my head today while going through all this.

Also found on Facebook

No, all my problems aren’t suddenly gone, but with God’s amazing grace I know that my son and I will get through this.  That’s all I got right now…. 

Love, prayers, and blessings, 

Day 11

So it’s late but I actually have some pictures for today!

These beautiful photos I took while waiting for a friend outside my house. It looked so beautiful and felt so good with the breeze blowing. I actually got to enjoy being outside for a little bit. It was great. Some times it’s the little things in life that make your day.

Finally got to the store for much-needed goods.. While there had way too much fun helping a friend pick out an outfit for one of her nieces.(pretty sure final count on the girls was 8 and 2 boys…but can’t remember for sure..I just know it’s a lot. ) Seriously had so much fun looking at all the cute little girl clothes….being thankful the whole time mine is a boy! Lol Anyway~~ as we were leaving we saw this awesome ride in the parking lot!!

 My fun picture for the weekly photo challenge! Awesome, right? It’s only got one wheel in the back! Not sure why I didn’t think to take a side picture… I didn’t take one straight from the back because I didn’t know how to doctor the picture so you couldn’t see the tag. Which according to tag holder it was owned by a marine. Simper fidelis!

Anyway~~ I guess over all it was a good trip. I am beginning to learn to budget simply because it’s a must with very limited income coming in and so much having to go out. It’s frustrating at times but at the moment it is what it is. Hope everyone has had a great day! I’m going to  try to get some sleep even though I ended up drinking a Mt.Dew way too late tonight. I’m hoping to go to church tomorrow!  If I can get to sleep tonight.

Love, prayers, and blessing,
