Nostalgia


So my mother in law went back to Puerto Rico today. Why is it that that every time I go to the airport it is emotional. This doesn't mean that the emotions are the same, but there are always emotions. When I am traveling somewhere I get a little nervous and excited; when I take someone to the airport it is usually sad and nostalgic. That's what it was today. I hated to see her go. She was such a big help! I thank God for her and wish she could have stayed longer (even though I know that is selfish since she does have a life)! So to you Aida: Thank you. I can't express how much it meant to me and Omar to have you here, and I am so glad that God gave me the best mother in law ever. Love you and see you in August!

I guess now it is time to go back to normal life. So, to cheer myself up, I took some pictures of my kid and had Omar take some pictures of me. That was fun and it was probably about time I had some pictures taken. Until next time.

So, here I am new to the world of blogging. I guess I have been wanting to try this for a while, but have kept putting it off. Now is the time. This will just be a way to keep up with all that is going on in my life and in the life of my awesome family. It will hopefully just be an honest interpretation of who I am and a way to stay connected. I hope anybody who reads this can get something out of it.

I have actually been having quite a few busy days. My husband Omar had his knee operated and I have been taking care of him. Luckily my mother in law is also here, and she is a big blessing (don't know what I would have done without her, especially when we were removing bandages). I am also six months pregnant, so my moods are sometimes not as loving as I would like, and with my beautiful daughter in her potty training days, believe me it has been a challenge. But thoughout the whole process I have felt God's presence in everything. He uses every book I read and thought I have to keep telling me that everything is going to be o.k. Lately Jeremiah 29:11 has been repeating itself in my mind. I seem to find it everywhere I go.


"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."


This verse has just kept refreshing my soul. God knows everything that happens. He KNOWS. What can be better than trusting in that?
