Things that Make....

My Heart Glad!

I am so behind on blogging! So, I thought I would summarize some events as of late by just bringing up a few things that have made my heart glad lately! The Lord has a way of doing this in our lives by His grace and I am so thankful! So, here are some things that He has used to really make my heart glad recently!

  • Going on a cruise with Michael's mom, aunt, and sisters that was an absolute BLAST!
  • The trip included laughing so hard my stomach hurt...several times! Love it!
  • Coming home this week to realize my husband had started dinner for me! :)
  • Being overwhelmed by the Lord's presence in worship this morning...even though there were only about 25 people there this morning. Where 2 or more are gathered....!
  • Getting a phone call from my brother that he is getting promoted to Sergeant in the Army. So proud of him!
  • In the midst of feeling like I'm drowning in lesson planning, God blessed me with a really great group of 3rd graders!
  • Getting a phone call from my Vice Principal during the week to check on me and let me know she's praying for me. Wow.
  • Going on my first round of Clomid! Praying for a miracle. September is the 2 year mark of our struggle with infertility.
  • The only side effect I've experienced from Clomid is hot flashes, not bad considering all of the possible ones! Answer to specific prayer!
  • Signing up to do Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University through our church. So excited!
  • Spending time with sweet friends at Starbucks, a Silver Stars game, and over dinner.
  • San Antonio little league finishing 4th in the little league world series
  • College football season is here!
  • My husband is home when I get home since he's not coaching football this year! This was a HUGE God thing for this year!
Praise You Lord for the day-to-day ways You make my heart glad. I am humbled and thankful!

Summer & Update

Ok, so I've totally dropped the ball posting on our New York trip...and I'm not making any promises!  Since then I've been on a cruise with Michael's mom, sisters, and aunt.  We had an amazing time!  I'll have to post about that too...eventually.  I'm way behind and with school starting in a few weeks, I don't know that I'll ever catch up!  I'll post pics on facebook though!  
I can't believe that we only have one full week left before going back to work.  It has been a really great summer.  I am so blessed to get to spend the summer with my hubby who is off too!

I am excited and nervous about starting the new school year.  Third grade will be a challenge for me, but I'm excited.  

In other news, I had a Dr. appointment today.  My Dr. is starting me on Clomid.  She officially told me today that I have "unexplained infertility."  Medically speaking, they cannot pinpoint what is going on with me.  They do think that I have some anovulatory cycles, meaning that some cycles I do not ovulate, but others I do.  Anyway, I am starting Clomid and praying!  I know that His will is going to be done and that all of this is on His kingdom calendar.  His timing is perfect.  I will keep you updated and am so extremely grateful for your prayers!
