You

I am posting this from my phone - because everything in the house has been turned off except for the heat & electric. We are moving today and tomorrow.

I know, on Thanksgiving.

I'm not going to post a huge happy go lucky holiday post, because to tell you the truth, this has been a really hard couple days. No good, not fun, blah blah blah! So no frills, this is an honest blog, and honest I will be!

We are moving in w/ family. We have yet to find a home to fit our growing crew, except for one this past week that fell through. A huge, gigantic dissappointment. But all is well, and there are more homes out there...and for the right price, maybe we will buy it :)!

But you know what I've learned during my wishful thinking, and my "but this house is PERFECT for us, Lord" prayers? That its not the house thats perfect - it's His plan that is perfect.

So - thankful and patient I will be. (well, I will TRY to be!) Thankful for for a God who cares enough to give us 5 healthy little girls, and a perfect plan that He will reveal in His perfect time.

You know what else I'm thankful for? You. You ladies out there who have been sending encouraging emails and comments my way. They have made my day, my week, and sometimes made me laugh out loud when I really needed it. And that, my dear, sweet bloggy friends, is what it's all about.

I will keep you all updated on our status, and I look forward to having my internet back so I can get back to your blogs too!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

Praying for you and your family as you go through this time of transition. I will also be praying that God leads you to the "perfect" house for your growing family.

Happy Thanksgiving! I heard your message last night and sent you a text, but not sure if you can get them. I hope you have a great day.

Happy Thanksgiving....hope you were able to enjoy the day in the midst of this crazy season. Wonderful post! I know this is a bittersweet time...moving out of your home and not having a new one yet. Hang in there, friend and you'll definitely have quite the adventure to look back on...the girls will probably have fun memories from living with family over the holidays!

I love your honesty. I hope you and your cute family had a wonderful holiday despite the inevitable stress of moving :)

Well, on a lighter side of things.... since your blog title is called "YOU", I thought you were going to post about ME. Geez... I am so vain!!

Seriously, thoughts and prayers go up regarding the house situtation. ((hugs))
