It started raining last night! It has been so hot and dry here, the rain is a very welcome sight! It reminds me of a song:

"It's beginning to rain, hear the voice of my Father. 
He's saying whosoever will, come drink of my water.
He has promised to pour his spirit out on your sons and your daughters.
If you're thirsty and dry, look up to the sky, it's beginning to rain."

Love this song, and love the rain! Keep it coming Lord!

2 weeks old!

I haven't posted here in a while. Not because I am not thankful, but because I am lazy.

Anyway, today I wanted to share a picture of my Grandtoy with you, she is 2 weeks old now and I am smitten!

Isn't she beautiful?!?

Pool ladders

I wanted to title this post "ladders of love" but my hubby vetoed that idea! So, here we are stuck with THAT uninspired title.

Anyway! I think I have mentioned before that we have an above ground pool, right? Well, we do. It came with the house (which is the only reason we can afford it!) and I love it. BUT, over the last year or so I have begun to have problems getting in and out of the pool. My left ankle doesn't always want to do what I ask so maneuvering on a ladder can be problematic. It has gotten to the point that I need the hubby there to steady me whenever I use the ladder. Problem, he doesn't like to swim. So, asking him for help all the time feels like an imposition. End result, I don't go swimming as often as a woman with a pool in her backyard should.

Enter the solution:

He built me steps!! Isn't he the best?!? They are super sturdy and the ladder inside the pool is attached to the top, making it more stable as well. I am very blessed!! Thank you honey, I love you!!

TGIT!! THANK GOD IT'S THURSDAY! I am ready for the weekend. I'm not even sure why since this week hasn't been bad. It just feels like it has been 2 weeks long.

Last week I didn't even post here, first time that has happened since I started this blog. It was a bad week. But things are improving and for that I am grateful!

This week has not been a good one. Yesterday I had a panic attack at work and ended up having to come home. Today I just can't seem to pull it together. I am a mess. But a mess is not all that I am. I am loved. I know this because my dear husband laid in bed and cuddled with me and told me over and over that I am not crazy and it is okay, tomorrow will be better. I know this because I have received text messages and Facebook comments and messages from family and friends telling me I am not alone, that it is okay.

I know I am blessed. I know I am loved. And truly, I do know it will be okay.

I feel it, I really do.

Thank you to all my friends and family. I don't know what I would do without each of you.
