Randoms to catch up

I have been out of the blog loop lately and so I wanted to make blogging a priority today...here are some randoms to catch up...

I have had a bit of a rough time since losing my job but I feel like I am starting to bounce back lately!! Yay!!

Mr. Wonderful and I have gotten to spend alot of time helping at the church lately and that has really been fun and a helpful way to keep us busy and keep our spirits up.

I sure am loving the beautiful sunshine lately!!

We had a really cool family reunion this last weekend and it was really fun meeting family and catching up.

It looks like I will get to be a part of kids camp like never before since I do not have a job. I have mixed emotions about this. 1) I am super excited as I have never gotten to stay at camp during the day with the team and hang out and practice. 2) It's a little hard enjoying things knowing I really need to have a job and be working. Time is running out. 3) I know God is in control and if I need to be a camp like this I will if not I will get a job before hand. It is ALL in His hands and I am going to stand there with peace and acceptance knowing that He knows best!!!

My cat Tater had his front claws removed today and I stopped by to visit him after his surgery and it just melted my little heart. I wanted to pick him up and cuddle him and take him home with me, but I couldn't. He was doing good though and the lady was really sweet to him and was loving on him too. I am going to miss having him home with me these next few nights though. I can't wait to have him home again!!

I am loving my new lap top and loving the feeling of being able to have my own space now. I have never had that, I have always used a work computer. This one is mine and that feels really good.

I gave platelets for the first time ever last week and it was quite the experience. Now I am an avid blood donor. I absolutely LOVE to donate blood. It is something that I have that others need desperately and it is free for me to give. So I love it with all my heart. I have not been able to donate in a year since I got to go to Thailand last year. So I was really excited to get back in the grove. When Mr. Wonderful took me to the blood bank last week I asked the lady there about donating plazma and platelets and which they needed more of the three. It was interesting to find out that they needed platelets more. Here is why...They give platelets to cancer patients and patients who have blood clotting issues. Platelets only have a shelf life of 5 days. Blood has a shelf life of about 28 days I believe. So Mr. Wonderful and I decided that since they needed platelets more and we had the time that we would donate those instead of just blood. It wasn't so bad except for the ugly bruise on my arm. It was long, Mr. Wonderful's took 85 minutes and mine took 65 minutes. They only had one machine so we had to wait on each other. I am thankful to have been able to donate something they have such need of. I hope to be albe to do it again soon. If you are able please donate blood, it is a necessitly of life and there are people who literally will not survive if we do not donate!!!

Ok lovely blog readers, that is all for now. I hope to be around more. I hope to get all caught up in blog land soon!!

Until next time...God Bless!!! God is so good and His blessings are INCREDIBLE!!
