Hijacked

Hello it's Amanda here.. i have hijacked Sammi's blog so I can tell everyone reading that I am the worst friend ever and FORGOT my most precious friends birthday!!!! I want also to let HER know how sorry I am and how much I love her!! She is the best friend I could ask for. She is the most unselfish person I have ever met. She would drop anything, anytime to help me out (and has too many times to count), she is always there to lend an ear or with a shoulder to cry on. There is NOTHING we cannot discuss together and for that I am grateful. There have been so many days that I LITERALLY would not have made it through without her!! She is the person that understands me better than I do myself and the person who can truly understand and laugh at my crazy life!! I owe her so much. She is a wonderful, mother who give ALL of her time and energy to her boys and her husband. She never has a day off, she is always on duty and always there for scraped knees and midnight feedings. She is amazing!! I love her dearly and I hope she can forgive my thoughtlessness!! Happy Birthday!!

A Truely Amazing Woman



Since this is the first time I have tried this, I hope I don't screw it up. I want to take this time to say something about the love of my life. You are the rock of our family. I know at times things look difficult, but with you at my side, no matter what lies ahead, we will edure, succeed, and love each other along the way. As for our boys, they will be great one day because of the love you show for them. It is hard to put into words what you mean to all of us. To some you are a friend, to some a mother, to some a daughter, to some a wife, but to all of us you are a gift. Happy Birthday to the greatest woman I know, I love you so very much.

In a NUT SHELL.......




Hi all~
A report from the home front. After having a weird (the only word I can come with) weekend, we are up and at 'em them Monday morning.... The only thing I can say about this whole NUT SHELL is.... Well, we are BLESSED! We thought that we would be here in this place alone, but AHEM... Our friends and family thought not. We have been rallied around by all of our friends & family. We can not thank you all enough for your kind words, prayers and support. PLEASE know that we love each and every one of you.
Where do we go from here? Well, I have no idea, but my friend has an idea.. You all know his name.... GOD. He knew this was coming for Stacy & I, this was no surprise for him. So, for now, Stacy & I will continue to pray and be faithful. Letting go & letting GOD work.

KB's Crew~
I truly do not know what I would do without you guys. You have shown both Stacy & I love beyond meaning. You have stood tall beside us and for that we will forever be thankful. Without your humor and strength we would be depleted. I know that we said we would "do life together", but this is not what I had in mind... LOL We love you all so very much.

you know it's a bad day when............

Think your having a bad day? Well let me tell you about my day, or ahem, maybe I will just hit the High (insert laughter here) notes! Have you ever had one of those day where nothing seems to be going right, yeah, I know we all have, Right?!? Well I was informed today by my darling husband that we has fired from him job today. Yes, I said Fired. And before I get on my hind legs ready to attack, let me just tell you this. He was fired from a company that is STUPID!!!!!!! He is one of the most valuable employees that a ompany could ask for. He is VERY SMART, quick to learn, a good leader, the hardest worker that I know of, and Might I add very handsome to boot. Oh, I guess that the STUPID company doesn't care about any of that. OH WELL, there lose, and I mean that in a UGLY WAY!!!!!!! I must move on, cause I feel myself lean back on those hind legs I mentioned above! This will be one of those faith test I keep hearing about. Now, anyone would start to question why, Right? Well, let me just tell you that we are there. But we can not stand still on this, we must move forward into the dark, dank, scary unknown. I ask today that the large group of you, well, I guess it would be accurate to say, the 2 of you who read my blog, please keep us in your prayers.... I know that this my seem like not big deal to some, but we were a one income family. and well, now we are not. I KNOW that GOD has something better planned for our family and one day this will be just a memory, but until that day we will move forward slowly. I wish that I could say that I wasn't scared, but I am terrified. I know that we will get through this. I just don't know how muddy we will be at the end. And I know the saying: Don't tell God how big your storm is, Tell your storm how big your GOD is!" or something like that. How do you do that? I hope I can find out. I will promise you readers ( all 2 of you) my children will not feel this. They will only see happy parents trying to do the best they can with what they have to offer! Thanks for letting vent, I feel somewhat better.

My dearest husband~
Please hold your head up high. I love you more than words can say. I am and have been VERY PROUD OF YOU. Please do not let stupid people bring you down. Your are everything to me and your boys. You are not a loser or a failure. I DO NOT WANT THOSE WORD in your head anymore. You will overcome this. I know that your soul is wounded and bleeding.Know that I am here by your side, where ever the LORD leads us. Hold comfort in the LORD OUR GOD. "Be still and know that I am GOD" he says.
I am so proud to call you my husband and father of my children. I love you, my dear!
