Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!

th_Christmas-2I want to take this time and wish you a Merry Christmas. Today is the day my family celebrate the birth of Christ our Savior. This year my husband & I decided to do something different. Not to purchase a whole bunch of stuff. We talked it over with the kids & didn’t get any objections. Maybe since they where on strict supervision, gave us the upper hand. Our daughter brought her grades back up so, she did get all her electronics back. You better believe she thought it was Christmas.

Today, I’m going to go ole’ school…..I’m thankful for all the necessities in our life. The food, clothes, roof over our head, health & strength.

From our family to yours.

We wish you a healthy, blessed, peaceful, joyous & prosperous Christmas.

Love
Nicole

What side her bun is buttered on.

th_mcdonaldsMy baby girl is really growing up. After work, I went to McDonalds to get them something to eat. What I’ve noticed with all my kids… When they’re young, they don’t eat the entire Happy Meal. They only eat the fries & play with the toy.

When my daughter(2yr old) was done eating her french fries. She says, “Mommy I want more McDonalds. I want more Brench Bries(french fries).” I told her, “Go tell daddy.” She says, “No! I’m talking to you!” I think she knows what side her bun is buttered on.

I Need A Push

th_100_7619I’m so thankful for my husband. He’s so good at making sure his family is taking car of. We all have trials & troubles in our relationships but, when you know that you will overcome them because of the love you have for one another makes it all worth it.

In marriage realtionships it so important to hold one another accountable. Sometimes things may not be going so well and you may need a little push. Some encouragement, someone to tell you how much you’re needed and loved. That all makes us feel that the struggle isn’t in vain.

On my way home Wednesday, my transmission went out on my car. My “Man” came to my rescue! Long story short. It was going to take the tow truck until the next morning to pick up my car. So, we did some Bonnie & Clyde type stuff.lol He pushed my car with his truck all the way home(about 5 miles). It took us an hour and a half to get home. We did this late at night so that there won’t be many vehicles on the street.

The whole ride home….He’ll pull up behind me and push my car for awhile… then i’d coast awhile. We’d repeat the process all the way home. While we were driving, we had our phones on speaker phone so we could communicate. At times he’d go a little faster & my car would swerve a bit. I’d tell him to slow up. He’d stop pushing and I’d coast a bit.

Me and my, “always getting something out the story”, self began to think(uh oh!)…..

They’re are times in our lives when you may be feeling down or depressed. Those are the times you need someone in your life to encourage you(give you a push). The push you need is only temporary. It shouldnt be for a life time, just to help you get back on track. We have to be willing to take those pushes as fuel so we can get back on the road “of life” and move forward. If we go through life always needing someone to push us? Our lives will forever be out of control.

Who are you thankful for? Who is that person that helps you get back on track when you are traveling down a lonely dark road or a road that you wish to not travel on?

Thankful For The Push
