It's 5:30a.m., and I'm laughing my backside off (boy, don't you just wish it worked that way), as I looked at this first picture Sweet Baby Girl took for me. I wanted to show all of you the adorable aprons I found yesterday while on a spontaneous shopping trip with two of my very best girlfriends. I plan to wear them at my shop, but... didn't realize she took the picture before I found my other slipper!
Anywho, my pictures came right up this morning. Probably the only one up so early blogging I guess. Take a peak at these cuties! I found them yesterday, and plan on it being my "signature look", for the shop.
I figure when these bite the dust I can have others made for me. I will be known as "the lady with the shop who wears the great aprons." I also found these beautiful decorative balls and have awesome things in mind for them.
And look at these little sweeties... Great for a little girls room. You know for that little girl whose smart mother named her, Haily Grace. Or, Hope Gabriel. Or Gabriel Heather for that matter. Ooooo... How about, Hope Grace. Nah, too much.
Well, each day brings more blessings from above, and more reality of where God is leading. Such a calming feeling to know your in Gods will. I'm so grateful for His direction, clarity, love, peace. Not because everything goes right, well, or is even easier. But when life happens, (and it always does), I can go forward knowing my Heavenly Father is steering this ship, I call my life. I just need to pay attention and try my best to do what He is telling me. So I'm not responsible for sinking it. (and let me tell you, our ship has taken on much water through out the years.) But He has and will, keep it afloat, and on course. I'm not the captain but a deck hand. And I'm good with that.
I am missing Benjamin quite a bit these last few days. He's been gone over 3 weeks, and my moms heart seemed to say it was time for him to come home now... Yeah right. Good luck with that one, right? I do know God is faithful in all He has started, and will continue to bring our family closer to Him as we go through this period of adjustment with Benjamin gone. I am so very grateful for His constant care for Ben, and know as Benjamin draws near to God, God will draw nearer to him. What more could this mom ask for.
(P.S. I love you girls! Thanks for the encouragement!!!)
