It is a great story of Caroline and her family. Caroline inherits a run-down diner from her boss and is faced with many choices in her life. Should she keep the diner or take a job in Barcelona? Should she continue dating the town sheriff or get back with her old boyfriend who comes back to town? OOOOhhh, the plot thickens! Along the way, Caroline has an encounter with God that is profound and special. I highly recommend it as a fun read. I only wish Rachel had included the recipes for all the wonderful lowcountry food that she included. Especially Bubba's Buttery Biscuits..don't those sound yummy?
Here is a sweet little shot of my furbaby, Phoebe. She is taking a little nap on the couch in our den. Come on, isn't she cute? You may get sick of pics of my dogs, but until I have kids, this is it, folks! Phoebe is a Husky-Lab mix with blond hair and blue eyes that are incredibly hard to photograph. With her eyes closed she looks sweet. When we take pictures of her with her eyes open, she has major demonic red-eye that can't be corrected with the red-eye setting on my camera. Something about the shape of dog's eyes or some other reason.
On another note, things at work are going well this week. I am running a book fair and today was Librarian's Day. While all I got was a smoothie from a parent, it was a great day.
On yet another note, Charlie and I are currently taking a break from fertility drugs for a couple months. With all the chaos at work, I just couldn't take the emotional upheaval that the drugs were causing. I needed to be focused and calm for the kids and the hormones were just making life too hard. Plus, since my job is on the line, I'm not sure whether or not I'll have health insurance after the summer. So we're taking a little break. It has been nice to breath and not stress about it these past couple weeks.
Isn't it funny how we never really know where life will take us? I had this whole plan about my life, what age I would get married, have babies, build a house, etc. I had a plan for everything else and those seemed to work out, but my personal life has always taken longer to put together. Charlie didn't come along until way after I wanted and this baby thing has been a really hard experience. I guess in the scheme of things, I really am lucky. Charlie is wonderful and God brought me Pottery Barn, so I need to be content with His blessings. But each time I have to pee on a stick, the tears flow.
Lord, help me to find contentment in the blessings You bring me everyday. Wipe away my tears and bring me the peace only You can bring.
