This week has actually been one of those weeks you just put somewhere else in your mind and hope not to think about again (anyone else ever have those weeks?). There were some cute, high points (Saturday!) but it was just one of those weeks. It started on Sunday realizing that my engagement ring was missing (still is) and just continued with having trouble getting money here for our car and the fact that it has been over 100+ degrees everyday. We have lived here for almost 2 years without a car, and while waiting 2 more weeks really isn’t a big deal, it seems like a huge deal since we were looking forward to having it. (I don’t really know why it’s such a big deal b/c I can’t drive it yet anyway since I don’t drive stick shift. Yes, I’m almost 30 and can’t drive a stick shift car!) I’m thankful though, that I know my Father is with me. None of these things caught Him by surprise, and it was actually a good heart check for me of what is really important. Yes, my ring is missing, and we don’t have a car, but I have 3 beautiful, healthy, content in this crazy life children, a husband who loves me, a full life here, and WAY more grace from My Father then I deserve. So, in all that I Give Thanks!
This week was just a normal week. One high point that stands out for me in particular is finally, after almost 2 years, figuring out how to get my butcher to cut me steaks. Jay really wanted steaks this week for our Friday night date night, so I was determined! I knew that I my new butcher here was good, but he became my new favorite person that day! 🙂 ok…onto the week in pictures!
