Kindness Can Go a Long Way…

It’s days like these that make me appreciate who I am, and what I do. Being a receptionist sucks to say the least. I get bullied and cursed at for things that the lawyers do, I get mean looks when the lawyers take FOREVER to greet their clients…. but then you have those few people that just bless you more than they know. I had one of those today, he was such a sweetheart. He was an elderly man, a little overweight with glasses, a trucker’s hat, flannel shirt and a mountain man beard. Typical elderly man of this area I guess you could say. He just sat there and talked and talked about life, and how hard it was but then he stopped and said, “But you know what, God Blesses me in so many ways… I have beautiful grandchildren, friends that love me, and I get to meet beautiful sweet people like you who show they care without even knowing me.” He made my heart melt, he was such a wonderful man and person. He also made sure that I know to slow down! Live my life and enjoy it, because it goes by way to fast. I think we should all remember that, and that sweet old man who appreciates the kindness of a stranger.

“12Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
Colossians 3:12-13

Tired… Exhausted…

This woman will NOT stop calling. She started calling at 8:30am thinking she was calling her mom, which ofcourse is not right considering this is a law office. Anyways, she just keeps calling back and keeps calling back, this has been going on for 2 hours straight! Luckily, I have caller id 🙂 Oh look… she’s calling again. UGH!

Well, today is finally Wednesday, happy hump day! I like Wednesdays, it means you’re half way through the week and two days away from the weekend! Justin is working a late shift tonight, so I’ll have to go to Walmart and Aldi by myself to do the grocery shopping. That might sound silly, but I never go grocery shopping by myself, my husband LOVES to buy groceries! Haha!

I think I’m getting worse about rambling, these posts seem to get more random every day! Sorry about that.

Anyways, apparently every year at the beginning of summer the lawyers at our firm plan a picnic for the staff. Fried chicken, with covered dishes that we’re all supposed to bring. Well, I’ve told them over and over again that I won’t be able to go, because it’s on a Saturday and I’m starting a night/wknd job this summer… and they are NOT good about giving you days off. Besides that, I don’t really want to go, I don’t really get along with the people here, and I honestly wouldn’t mind NOT being friends with them. That sounds awful, I know, but AGADAGWEGH!

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 41:10

How to fix your hair
Everything that really counts

To be popular!

I love that song, it’s so much fun to sing….. except that it’s STUCK in my head. If you haven’t read the book or heard the soundtrack…. check it out! WICKED!

Anyways, so Justin and I watched Little People, Big World last night, along with Jon & Kate Plus 8… LOVE those shows! The dad from LPBW gets on my nerves though, I really don’t know how that woman lives with him! He just goes overboard and DOESN’T stop… its ridiculous!

J&K Plus8 is an awesome show by the way, I love watching those children grow up and watching each of them develop into their own person and personality. I’ve seen a lot of boards online talking about how much they hate Kate and how mean she is to their husband… ugh it gets on my nerves! What would you do if you had 8 children? You can tell that J&K are in love, and yes she fusses at him and yes she scolds him…. but if she didn’t, that might be the one moment he’s not paying attention and something bad happens. You have to think about these things. They have to work together to keep those kids safe! Justin and I were talking about having kids and what we would do if we ended up with multiples…. yikes!

Justin wants to have 2 maybe 3 kids, I would love 4 kids, but I don’t think that will ever happen! There wasn’t really a point to this post except to take a break from what I’m doing at work! Hope everyone has a fantastic day 🙂 !

Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious

Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious…. that’s how I feel right now….

I’m not even really sure what it means or if it’s supposed to have a meaning, but I figured a long, complicated word described my feelings today! I’m at a point in my life where I’m thinking, “Where am I going?” “Why am I here?” “What is my purpose?” It’s complicated, terrifying, and absolutely mind boggeling. I’m sure everyone has been there. I’m sure everyone has asked themselves those questions, but have any of you found the answer? I sure haven’t. I know I WANT to be a teacher… but is that God’s purpose? I know that Justin and I WANT to move to Tenneesee, but is that God’s purpose? I WANT to be a mom NOW, but is that God’s purpose? What does He want me to do, I’ve been struggling with that lately.

There are days where I feel like I can hear him calling out to me and speaking through people and things that occur during the day. Then there are days when I feel like He’s just not here, even though I KNOW that He’s there. It’s so frustrating.

God is incredible, powerful and magnificent but He is also a hard concept to wrap your mind around. I look outside at the array of colors, flowers, bugs, animals….. He created those, and He created every being on this planet. How amazing is that? Every detail of your eyes, every detail of your hair…. even the details of the palm of your hands. It just amazes me.

“I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.'”
Psalm 91:2

Procrastinating

I’m putting off cleaning up the last room in the house, I am SO tired of cleaning!!! Right now, I’m just sitting at the local coffee house dreaming about our future, and what we can do to make it better. We’re in a rut, just not knowing what to do, or how to spend our life! We both [Justin and I] have a lot on our minds lately, it’s stressful and makes us grouchy… but somehow we manage to get through it.

I am really wishing the weekends didn’t go by so quickly, it seems like my life revolves around work these days because of Justin’s work schedule. I barely see him in the morning, he lives about 20 minutes before I come home for lunch, and he gets off 3 hours after I do in the evenings.

Enough ramblings, I’ll post some pictures probably tomorrow, much love!
