Im gonna let it all out... GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR... ok.. better now.. I havent blogged in a few days, my heart has been full with a multitude of emotions. Ive been dealing with name calling from people who used to love me, people that say they love me, and Its been very hard. Those that love you shouldnt call you names. I know we are supposed to let the negative roll off our backs, but sheesh.. these past few days its been very hard for me to do that. I have always been a strong person, but evil is getting the best of me. :(
On the bright side, my coworker and I spoke and she invited my children and I to her church. I grew up in church but had not been in many years. I was nervous but deffinitly felt like church was where I needed to be. Well the kids absolutely LOVE it! They want to go everyday! They have learned so much in the 2 weeks that we have been going there. They are quoting John 3:16 over and over again. ( For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life) Its amazing that they are so excited! I guess I wasnt the only person needing God in my life. My 8yr old daughter was sitting in the car with me on the way home from church on the 1st Sunday that we went, she says "Mom, my heart feels different, I feel better cause we went to church. I dont want to be mean". I was super excited! Five minutes later, she was yelling at her brother calling him a jerk? ha ha... Rome wasnt built in a day! :)
I am kind of in the rambling mood today, lots of thoughts in my head, not sure what to do with Life.. then again, I dont know if I will ever figure that out. Ok time for some more Randomness!!! I did lose 3 lbs in 8 days, just by watching my diet and logging my food :) I lost my blood sugar monitor, ok actually my blue heeler took it, and it has yet to be found... Im afraid to find it in the back yard one day!! Ewwwwww! I received a coupon to get a hair cut and color at my normal salon for $50, so I was super excited! Usually I spend more than that and I just cant afford it any more, so I jumped at the chance.. I get to the salon, gal highlights my hair I attempt to use the coupon and she says "you cant use that, I work on commision?" Really??? Ive been a long time customer, and your company sent me this coupon and I cant use it?? So I bit my tounge, and I paid the full price. The more I thought about it, the more it bothered me so I called the salon manager and she said I shouldnt have recieved the coupon, it was an error, but she looked at my history and could tell I was a good customer, so she was going to honor the coupon! YAY!!!!! So I was able to get $35 back! SCORE!!!! I LOVE COUPONS :0) OH, and then my fridge stopped cooling, so I called to have it serviced and it was gonna be 2 wks before a tech could get there. I vented to the tech a bit, and he was able to get someone out a few days later. The tech informed me that since I had a warranty, they also cover spoilage? So they are going to send me money, and will replace up to $200 worth of food! YAY again!!!
Whats even more awesome, is that in church the minister talked about prosperity, health and wealth. He talked about how when you give to God, he "returns the favor". Here this past few week I have felt that what was said was true! God works in mysterious ways.
Well.. I actually feel better.. Amanda begged me to write.. she knows whats good for me.. so this was Ode to Amanda.. sorry its all rambling! kisses Amy
