Been a while...

I know it has been a while since I was a good little blogger. Been a little busy. Wanna know what I've been doin???? WORKING!!!! Yep, you heard right, I gots me a JOB!! PRAISE JESUS, HALLELUAH, RAISE THE ROOF!!! I had asked Lisa to send out the prayer chain over this job a couple of weeks ago. I mean I had most of Sand Mtn. praying for me. Believe me, I could feel it too. There's nothing like the sweet peace of feeling people praying for you. So now, I request prayer yet again. This is a Hospice/Home Health position. I just pray that the Lord give me the strength to do His work with these people. I know with all of my heart that He has called me to do this job because I would never have chosen it on my own. I need His love to show in me in every aspect of the work I will be doing. I consider myself blessed beyond words to have this opportunity.
Thanks to all of you for your prayers, I love you all so much (if I never told ya)

Now...onto what I missed. On Saturday we had what I refer to as "Boy-Fest 2009". That is to say that the boy who already had a lil party at school, had to have a party here as well. So, we typed up invites to go skating and have a spend the night. Well, they had basketball games on Saturday so I was thinking "whew, I'm off the hook" (what a mom, huh) Oh but no, they lost the second game so over they all came, ALL 5 of them. Don't misunderstand me, I love them all...individually. lol . Jason got the great honor of taking them to McDonald's & skating. They got home around 10:30 begging to frost the cake and ofcourse, eat it too. Can I say no...NO! As they were eating, they were laughing about the girls that tried to "hit on them" at the rink. They each had a fake identity. And to hear them tell it, none of them were younger than 13. Jason said they were doing real good at keeping up with their little game until they had a race arranged by AGE. So when they started standing up for the 10 & 11 year old group...BUSTED!!! Finally around 11:30 I got them all laid down in my living room. It was so funny. One of these 11 year old boys is already 6 feet tall. (picture it) He was laying next to a boy who is 4 feet tall and weighs maybe 75 lbs. HA! Around 4:30 in the morning I wake up to one boy walkin around the living room on his knees (i thought he was sleep walkin, but he said no) As I was getting him back on the blanket, I hear this heavy breathing, look down, and what is right up against my rear-end but the head of a boy!! I made him get back on the floor and laid full out on the couch. An hour later...he was nose to nose with me wide-eyed. If I was one to startle easy I believe he mighta got a smackin. The next mornin, as we were getting ready for church, I asked them about all of that...nobody remembered anything. Go figure. Thank goodness birthdays come but once a year!!!

Hope it won't be so long next time..this is fun for me! (told ya I'm a dork).. til later Missi
