Update on Life

Well lots has happened so I thought I would update all that care!!! This past week was supposed to be my last full time week as the lead infant teacher but of course what happened my kids were sick!! Jordan and Mariana had sinus infections Jordan had pink eye and Sam had Bronchitis (SP?) Then I woke up on Wed to Sam and Mariana having Pink Eye!!! So all that to say I went in on Friday being my last day as the lead infant teacher! I am now Part time and I have two weeks off!!
So if you want to get together with me for coffee or a playdate call me because I will be free!! I am very excited to be able to have a break from the hustle and bustle of working full time! I found out that all my health problems are from nothing other than Sleep Deprivation!! I get anywhere from 1 hour to 5 hours a night so hopefully that will change!
Oh and Praise God this Christmas will be very relaxing! We only have two places to go to on Christmas Eve and then to Church at 9 pm and then only 1 thats right 1 place on Christmas Day! That has never ever happened in my lifetime!! We are so excite to be able to just relax and enjoy our children. We are very excited because this year the girls really understand what is happening and this is Sam's First Christmas!
So Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!!

The movie is Diary of a Mad Black Woman. I love it so much that I have seen it at least 5 times. Everytime I see this movie I get something different out of it. There are some really tough scenes that are really hard to get through but I never regret it at the end of the movie. This movie has over and over again reminded me of what God means when he says to forgive no matter what! You ask what does this movie have to do with that? Watch it I promise you, you will be changed. There is a character in the movie that says if you run into someone who has hurt you (that you thought you have forgiven )and you want to get even you have not forgiven them but if you are able to feel nothing you have forgiven them. I used to be the person that wanted to get even. It could be by my actions or by my words like gossipying about you so I looked better! This is something that over the last couple of years God has shown me how to forgive. In my own life I have had to forgive someone over and over again and over and over again (no need to mention names) This was so painful for me becuase I just wanted to get even with them. I have had to walk through this and honestly it has only been God and some select Godly women that have helped me along the way. I am no longer the mad black woman like in the movie but I know that the only way that I can expect God to forgive me is to forgive others. God does not tell me everytime I go to him about that same sin no I will not forgive you he just does and forgets so who am I to say that anyone esle is different??? I can not believe that everytime I watch this movie that it reminds me of the pain that I walked through and the last half hour of the movie takes place in the church and the choir sings this beautiful song that brings me to tears everytime and reminds me why I went through what I did and how awesome God is that he brought me through it WHOLE!!!!

The Holidays............

Well I know that this may surprise you all but the holidays are not my favorite! Since my faith started deepening I began to see the meaning behind "the holidays" but still it is hard. I am stressed around this time I always have been my whole life ask my mom LOL! I get stressed about going to fiffty million parties and having no time to myself, putting on a smile like all is well to people that I see once a year and forget my name (I am not mad because I forget theirs). Now that I have kids it involves packing them extra clothes,diapers,food,PJs,toys,and anything else that they sneak into the car only to drag them around from house to house half alseep to open more and more gifts. I know that I should feel blessed that we have family to visit but 6 houses that is a lot! I am trying this year to realize the true meaning of the holidays and be thankful for God's Son be born. This year I am putting my foot down and only going to 5 houses this year and believe me that is a huge step because I am a people pleeeeezer and for me to say no to that one person is going to cause DRAMA!!
Oh and by the way I know that everyone is different when it comes to Santa but we tell our girls that Santa is fun to talk about and read about like it is to read and talk about Cinderella but that Mommy and Daddy are the ones who bring presents! We still go see Santa and take the pictures but the girls know the truth (This is our way don't hate if you don't agree) Well we have not run into any problems with this until TODAY! Jordan told her WHOLE class and teacher that Santa is not real!!! LOL!!! What do I do now!!!
