Five months

Miss Brynlee is getting so big! She is now five months old and growing like a weed. She now weighs 18 lbs and is 27 inches long. Big girl, lots of love! I wanted to get our pictures taken together. I thought what a perfect time, her 5 mo mark and right before mothers day. Thanks grandma for the my early mothers day present! I must say I have a really cute baby girl!

The Little Things in Life...

It seems like lately I have had my share of bad luck. First of all it all started with me and my husband getting a divorce, if that wasn't hard enough, I found out that our hunting dog had cancer and we had to put him down, oh and to top it all off I recently found out that I was getting laid off of work. Single mom being laid off, that's not good! I have found it is so easy to be angry and frustrated with others in these situations, but I have learned that it doesn't do me any good getting angry with others it just makes me a more miserable person. After having some long talks with close friends and family, I realized I need to be grateful for the things I do have and not focus so much on the things I have lost. So that being said, here are some of the many things I am grateful for.
I am grateful for a my home, that I have a roof over my head and a warm place to live.
I am grateful for a family that can help provide for Brynlee and I while I am looking for a job.
I am grateful for my friends that help me out when I am having a bad day.
I am grateful for my animals that we can enjoy as a family.
I am grateful for the challenges I face that make me a better person.
I am grateful for the Lord and all the blessings he has given me.
most of all I am thankful for Brynlee. She is the light of my life. She can change any bad day with her sweet smile. She is my best friend and my angel sent from heaven. I love her so much!
I guess the lesson I have learned is to be grateful for the little things in life.
