It has been a while since my last post and well I wanted to let you all know what I have been doing!!!

Believe it or not my husband and I are expanding our business. Yup, you read that right, in this crazy economy we have not only managed to survive but thrive. We are a small business, I still work a full time job outside the home too. I have all along. We are not really married hubby and I but we have been together over 12 years now so we haven't done the deed but we are in it together. I work in construction, it is awesome because it is so busy and each day brings a new issue I love the challenge construction brings!

Anyway back to building a business and making it work. We were never very big even in the crazy boom period we keep it nice and simple, but we decided to expand and merge with his brothers company, that will give us a total of 5 trucks and 3 men plus me handling the office. I am very excited.

Life is very funny that way right, you go along sometimes you don't even realize it but you a smack in the middle of exciting and wonderful things. I feel at times I should look up more often and take in the wonders that are all around me. My family, my everyday life is really something I should be thankful for, I think today being that it is Ash Wednesday I will say a pray of thanks for all that I have in my life.

As for giving something up, I think I am going to mix this part up, I am not going to give anything up no, I think this year I am going to try to be more forgiving, more helpful. Things I should be anyway, but sometimes I forget, no I am going to give this season of Lent, give more time, more love, and more understanding. I think God and Jesus will be OK with this, in fact I have a good feeling that they will embrace this decision.

Yes, life, love, and everyday family... Isn't it a beautiful thing!!!
