Tears

Good morning lovlies!

Each day I find myself so thankful.

When I think about it tears come to my eyes.

I am so undeserving, really, for the blessings that have entered my life.

This past Sunday we encountered our first snowfall…

When my husband left us back in May I knew I needed to find a more suitable, more manageable home for the kids and I.

I started looking way back then.

I tried looking to stay in the area I was living, to not have too much change but just kept getting blocked.

I finally looked a little further away….still nothing.

Then things finally fell into place.

I found the apartment I am now living in…

That the 3 of us really love.

We adore the new congregation we are in, though miss our friends from our previous one.

It is good that we are still fairly close and will keep up with them.

Moving on…

So I was doing errands Monday…after our first snow…

It all of a sudden hit me…

and even now as I am thinking about it tears are just welling up!

A higher power is certainly looking out for us in so many ways.

His hand is so evident in our lives it is just truly amazing and I am so humbled by it…

As I am just so not deserving of all He has done.

I do not intertwine my faith here…

I do not honestly feel it is the right platform for it but…

this is impacting and encompassing all that is with my life that I just need to share it.

We only moved 15 days prior and realistically we should have moved that weekend!!

The weekend of our first snow!

So you are probably thinking so what!!

Well we had a nightmare of driveway at our previous home.

Especially in the winter…

with ice and snow covering it!

We slid down it last year many times, ending in the ditch a few times after…

it was plowed…

salted…

and the van had studded tires!

Plus being in the country the roads were not taken care of in a  timely manner.

The roads in town where we moved were beautiful!

It is the little things right?

Why the big deal, right?

I had to use the money I needed to buy studded snow tires for my van…

it is a different one then I had last year…

for moving expenses and my income right now is next to nothing as financial help from husband has stopped…

hopefully only temporarily.

So the hopes of getting the tires I really need are not anywhere in my near future,

but thankfully the roads here are much better than where we had been.

So I will continue taking things as they come.

Being so appreciative and thankful for all that I have…

for those in my life that are true…

They are what is truly important and without them…

those that are right here helping to hold me up through this extremely stressful and sad time in my life…

to them, and they know who they are…

Thank you!

I love you all!

I hope your day is filled with smiles and love!

Until next time…

Trish
