It's been awhile.....

I know it's been awhile y'all! I apologize! Like I have mentioned before, I don't think there's lots of people reading it it's not that big of a deal....Right??? I hope not! I have been busy with work (as usual). I have also had the flu the last 3 or 4 days...which was not too much fun!!!! I did get to miss work, but I was so miserable that I would have rather been there than at home sick!

In other news......
My BFF/Partner-in-crime/Sanity checker is back in business!!! YAY! Rebecca, my beloved co-worker, is back from maternity leave and I couldn't be happier! She is doing great and the little one is growing like a weed! She has been gone since the beginning of I have missed her tons!

I have mentioned this little girl before ( Her name is Cora and she recently passed away due to a VERY short battle with cancer. She wasn't even a year old yet! This little girl didn't even know me (nor do I know her or her family) and she has made such an impact on me. I was tremendously saddened by the news of her death and even more so by the way she passed! Her family has come together beautifully and started to make different things (mainly children's clothing) and sell them on ETSY (which is a FABULOUS thing...if you haven't seen it yet....please do). All proceeds from Cora's Etsy pieces goes into the Cora's Playground Fund. The first night the store was open they COMPLETELY sold out of everything! They are in the process of making new may take a little while because everything is hand-made. I will be picking some things out for Ella for SURE! Check it out please:
(P.S.---Continue to pray for this young family....Cora would have been ONE year last week.....I know it's been hard on them!)

I have one more thing to blab about.....My devotional book! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! One of my best friends from high school, Andrea, told me about it and I ordered it last year! I started it when the new year came and I really enjoy it! It's called "Diamonds in the Dust" by Joni Eareckson Tada. She is a really inspirational woman with a powerful message. She conveys the messages day-by-day throughout this book and it's GREAT! I suggest everyone try it!

Love y'all! Have a great week!
