And..So Are The Days of My Life......

Wow....seriously, where does the time go?!?


Schooling the boys is going great this year....so much easier than the previous years....could it possibly be because everyone can read directions on their own!!!


Small group is going fantastic!   I'm really enjoying getting to know these ladies better....still miss my sisters from Lori's group, but I know that they've got my back!!!


This weekend my friend Kim tied the knot with a super great guy!   I was honored to stand up with them as they said their I do's.......and found a fabulous dress at David's Outlet for $30! 


After losing 20 lbs, I had to have the dress taken in big time...thank you Joyce!!!!  (and thank God for safety pins...or else I would have never been able to keep the crazy thing up!)


As I uploaded this wedding pic onto facebook, ..a picture from a year and a half ago caught my eye....wow...I'm close to 50 lbs lighter!!!
I'm totally in tears.....


When you're in the midst of such a long journey, it is really hard to see progress....really hard...


I'm not posting this to get pats on the back, just...well....no matter what you go through, little steps lead to big accomplishments....one day you feel like you're going no where fast and then the next you look back and see how far you've come.


Don't lose hope.  Don't get discouraged.   God has made us for so much more!!!!

Please accept this pat on the back anyway. I'm so proud of you! But you are still as cute as a bug, and I'll bet your date would agree.
