sometimes i forget that there is an intricate plan and a grand design that i am a part of. lately, i have been thinking and reflecting a lot about me, tyler, our life and our future. where will life take me? am i making the right choices? what do i need to do to get what i want out of life? are my expectations unrealistic?
needless to say there have been a lot of thoughts running through this brain of mine. but then, i am stopped by a phrase such as this.
i'd say that in general i am a pretty optimistic person. i look forward with hope and faith that if i am doing what is right and working hard at being the best person i can possibly be, that everything will work out. but, i can also get impatient at times. surprise, surprise. so, i'm trying to be more positive and more faithful. i am trying to remember that Heavenly Father has a plan for us and he will never leave us alone. we just need to be patient and continue to make the right decisions and have faith in His timing.
p.s. mr. rex and i both woke up to sore throats this morning... i have a feeling this weekend will include a lot of cuddling on the couch, cough drops and tea. sounds wonderful to me.

this is what lunch time looked like at my house on thursday.
i got creative & decided to try something new. a whole grain english muffin, some basil pesto, sliced roma tomatoes and a slice of mozzarella cheese. it was delish. seriously. and healthy.
all items were purchased at trader joes. enjoy.

that's right people. that just happened.
my husband is a sweetheart. i am so blessed to have him in my life. sometimes life doesn't go the way you planned and we ( i ) need to exercise a little more faith in the bigger picture. maybe someday i will get answers. maybe i wont. either way i have faith that tyler and i can get through or accomplish anything as long as we are doing all we can do and exercising faith in God's plan for us.
