I think one major lesson I've learned from the past few years is that life definitely is a waiting game. I don't mean you have to sit around and wait for it to happen, but you really do have to have patience because things don't happen in your own time. And, I've come to realize that things are so much better when they happen in God's time than if they happened when I wanted them to. I'm really trying to stay focused on that lately, as my patience is being tested regarding some major life issues. I pray every night for Dan to find a better job during a day shift. That change would allow us to work on the biggest change our lives will ever experience...having our first child. As my biological clock starts ticking louder and louder, it is hard for me not to think about wanting to get pregnant. I know that God has a plan for everything, and there is a reason why we haven't been able to work toward that yet. The job I have now is truly a blessing, and all of the jobs I had leading up to this, stresses and all, prepared me for what I'm doing now. It amazes me how God works in our lives to help everything fall perfectly into place. I can't wait to see how he works his magic on us in the future.
We're having Mom and Dad over for dinner tonight...really looking forward to that. Mom is bringing her super yummy potato salad which I haven't had yet all summer. Tomorrow night we're having a contractor come over to look at our kitchen! I'm sooooo excited about the thought of starting on the kitchen renovation. I know that a fresh new kitchen will motivate me to cook more...I don't even want to be in that room with the way it is now. Keep your fingers crossed for me that he will work out! Here are a couple inspiration pics that I've saved for ideas...
Other exciting news...Dan bought us tickets to see Ben Harper yesterday!! The concert isn't until September 7th, so we have awhile to wait. We are on the 3rd row dead center...wooohooo!! It will be in Indianapolis at the Murat. Can't 'wait!!!
