More of the same

Okay, so now I remembered some of what I was going to post. I took Mason for his 2 month check up last week, and he is now 10 pounds and 3 ounces, and 23 inches long! So he has doubled his weight, and grown a lot!!! He's in the 25th percentile for weight, and 75th percentile for height. He is doing so well! We have already been having some problems with allergies, but right now there is not a whole lot they can do about it. His older brother had some of the same problems early on too. I hope this doesn't mean we will have ear trouble. I am just not even going to think about that right now!

I have been feeling really well. I can't tell you what the power of a decision does for you! For me, I just feel so free, and everyday I see more and more of God's blessings. It's funny, because I've been doing a lot of recounting of events and I remember such horrible, emotionally desperate times that I was just so full of pain. I remember just having to pray to get through those moments, and now I am able to look back and see how I did get through it, and by listening to God and trusting Him, He blessed me for it! And all along I knew that would happen, but it's so much harder when you're right in the middle of the pain trying to see out. You feel so trapped by everything.

I just feel like a different person, and it's wonderful. I know there will still be hard times, but for me to get to this point is a big deal. And I have no reason to believe that God won't continue to bless us.

I am looking at moving back to Lubbock. I know at one time I said that one of the many reasons I didn't want to go to Hell was because I was just sure it would be a place of perpetual moving. So, no I am not a glutton for punishment, I actually have a few reasons for doing this. One I didn't think I was going to work in Lubbock. I am driving up here at least once a day. And two I knew I would move back up here sometime, I just didn't know when. Another reason is my children and I can not survive in our duplex much longer. There is just not enough room for all of us, and that is also the reason why I think Mason has allergies. Call me a hypocondriac, but I don't think the air is good. It is not well ventilated.

So here is my plan. I want to find a 4 bedroom rent house in either Cooper or Frenship school district. I am partial to those districts. Is anybody else besides me like that? I mean, am I the only one who thinks they're better than LISD? I just am curious if I am being too picky. I am going to try to find a college girl to move in with me. I will give her room and board and pay her a little bit each week just to help out in the evenings around dinner time. I realize that may be a tall order, but you know it's what I want and I'm just putting it out there, and somehow it will all be worked out. I have no worries about it!!! So if you hear of anyone, or know a college girl who would like to do that, let me know!!!

Anyways, well that is about it for now. I probably won't post until I get back from Dallas. I hope yall have a great rest of the week!

I for one am so pleased with how very quickly you have rebounded from real pain and injustice. Yes God will continue to see you through, even the hard times.
