Busy Busy Busy!

Life has been nuts the past few weeks. Getting into the swing of things with school and activities has been crazy. Kiana started voice lessons at the Alberta Conservatory of Music through Grant McEwan College last week. She has a natural ability and she LOVES to sing so I think we may have found her niche. But her ego has ALREADY become almost impossible to deal with - LOL!! She is convinced she will be the next Canadian Idol or something. She thinks she is DEFINITELY all that.

Fall has come and its only a little better than a week until Thanksgiving is here. So I have been thinking about all the wonderful things in my life.

I am thankful for a God who loves me no matter what stupid things I do.

I am thankful for a devoted and amazing husband.

I am thankful for autism - brought to me in the shape of my two beautiful angels

I am thankful for my friends - both at home and online - who have supported me, hugged me, cared for me and carried me especially in the last month.

I am thankful for the ability to be creative.

So, tell me, what are you thankful for?!

The weekend!

TGIF - I am so happy the week is over - its been a long one. This weekend is going to be kinda quiet I think. My girlfriend is taking me out for lunch tomorrow and my kids and husband have something planned for me, but I'm not sure what. I would rather forget that I am turning 37 - that much closer to 40.

I got a pretty exciting offer today. Since getting my new SLR I have been taking ALOT of practise photos as well as putting together slide shows for different people, organizations and for our church. I guess somebody saw the work I have been doing and has asked me to do a slide show for a conference. Its a Christian organization that is doing something called an "Urban Plunge" and they want a slide presentation done for their conference presentation. Its not a paying job, but at least I get to show my work and who knows where it could go from here. I know its not much, but I am pretty excited about it!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I Love you!

"I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and pray to me and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with your whole heart." - Jeremiah 29:11-13

You have been my strength, my support, my champion, my lover, my friend and my soulmate. You make me laugh so hard my gut aches, you hold me when I cry and need to fall apart, you encourage me when I can't take another step, you lift me up when I am down, and you love me no matter how ugly I can get. Thank you for an amazing 11 years. I love you!
