Our Purpose

I know we all have a purpose in life. How many times do we wonder what it is? I know I do a lot! Well, today I was once again reminded of yet another purpose for the life of Ava Grace... I have a good friend that came into my life last year. Once we became more acquainted, I found out we had a lot in common. I know with out a shadow of doubt, God placed her in my life. She has a beautiful family. Two older sons and a daughter around Ian's age. She has kept Ava several times and told me how much her family loves and adores her. (don't we all!) They almost fight over her! My friends daughter has had some major health problems. Due to these problems it would be wise if the girl did not carry children of her own. As we talked about this today, I mentioned how it may be a good idea for them to adopt so the little girl could see how special it is and that she could love a child this way just as much. Well they have already thought this and plan to hopefully adopt in the near future. I said until then they could love on Ava! Then it hit me here is another way that Ava has had a purpose for her life. Used so this young girl could learn that love is unconditional. Oh, I wonder what the future holds!! :)

P.S. Today was suppose to be Ava's first haircut. The hair stylist talked me out of it, so Ian got his cut instead! Thank the Lord! He needed it!
I will post a picture later.

Oh My could you be any slower!

Hurry up computer I am about to bust! I know that this is suppose to be an uplifting blog, but I have three sisters and I am the only one that lives away. I know they are tired of me texting and calling them and I just have to vent! All was going well today, I came home from school and of course Ava was crying but not too much. My house has been a wreck so I had planned to meet a housekeeper at 4:30 to give me an estimate. (if she only knew that at that moment i would pay anything!!) I finally called her at 4:45 and she said she would be there at 4:30!? That should have been my sign. Ian had told me he wanted to go watch his friends bball game at 5:30. I really did not want to go because I needed to go get groceries. He started reminding me every 15 min what time it was. Like I did not know. Finally at about 5:15 the lady calls to ask me what road to turn down. I realized she was taking the wrong road and tried to tell her but she insisted she knew where she was going. Time passed and I tried to call her twice. I left messages. Oh and, during this time I was trying to rock Ava, when my new iphone dropped to the floor!!! The back shattered! I wanted to cry. I had ordered an otter box cover this morning! It just kept going down hill....Ian keeps reminding me of the time. I hated to tell him he was not going because I had to get groceries and now go by Verizon and a little lady from church called and wanted me to stop by her house. She had a gift for Ava. I broke the news to Ian then thought "what the heck", who knows where the cleaning lady is. Lets go to town. "Ian grab your phone I am going to drop you off at the ball park then I am going to Verizon". Did I just leave my 10 year old at the ball park by himself????? Yes I did!!! I ran to Verizon to find out for $169 I could have a new phone. Man, insurance is good!! I decided when I got that otter box no body will ever see my shattered back! So, I ran by and got the precious little dress for Ava then headed back to the ball park to wait on Ian. Of course, once I stopped, Ava cried. Got her out and held her while I tried to cancel the otter box using my phone. (I needed one asap) I got Ian and we headed to the grocery store....half way there I forgot I did not have my wallet! We went home. I did not want to go to the store on sat morning because I was expecting Edward at6:30am and Ian had to be somewhere at 9 and I WANT TO GO SEE MY MOMMA!!!!!! One guess what starts playing on the radio?...You got it! This is the stuff that drives me CRAZY!! Don't we just love God! Thanks for letting me vent-Julie

One year ago!

Can you believe it! It was one year ago today that God revealed to me a promise he had made me two year earlier. I am still sometimes in shock that we have a little girl. And she is all I have ever dreamed of! Attitude and all!!! Well, I dream of a brown eyed girl but God gave her gorgeous blue eyes that pop! He is a wonderful creator! Any way it has been a long year. One that has been full of excitement. And one of the best years of my life. I just want you to know that God is BIG. He can do anything. Trust in Him. Believe Him! Look for Him each day! Thank you all for sharing this wonderful time with me. I will post from time to time, when I have a chance. I am finding that it is really hard to even get on the computer! I love you all!
