Wow I know it has been a long time.

I know it has been a long time since I have written here!  Life has been very hectic lately with my oldest son starting school this year and I took on a job at my church.
We have finished preparing the small garden around the house and the strawberry patches for winter. Next we are going to work on the big garden and get that one ready for winter. Hopefully we can work on some of that tonight and this weekend.

I am already in the midst of making out my list of things I want to grow ,next year. I am not going to do certain things that didn't work out well last year. Such as the corn and the watermelon. We will just have to buy these at the veggie stand. :)

Thanksgiving is coming up! I love this time of year (also Christmas) , because I get to spend a whole day with my whole family! I love family time so much! I guess that is why I don't like to travel. hahah Or as my husband would call me a homebody. :) I don't mind I take that as a compliment.

Anyway, I am so thankful to God, my family and friends for so much they have done for me and my life! They keep me motivated knowing that someday God will provide us the live we always dream of having with our children. I can't wait for that day, but even where we are there is so much to be thankful for that we take for granted. I want to challenge you to sit down for a few minutes ( I know when does a mom have time to do that) okay then maybe while you are throwing in a load of laundry thank the Lord for something you are thankful for, maybe those clothes you are washing or those dishes you are washing, or the food that was on those dishes. Really take the time this month and every month to be thankful for what you do have and not complain about the things you don't have. :)

I am going to live my life by this Bible verse. This is by far one of my favorites.

Philippians 4:11-12

11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

I will try to keep this blogging up! haha Thank you for those who do follow me! Have a wonderful day!
