San Antonio - and my wonderful friends

I have been in San Antonio, Texas since Wednesday on a business trip. It has actually been pretty relaxing, because I didn't have to plan it. This was a learning excursion for me.

Last week, my husband started a new job - as a visual merchandiser. He is finally getting paid for doing something he loves - and I am so proud of him. The only crazy part was learning how to handle both of us being out of the home more often. It has been quite a change.

Luckily - God has blessed us with some amazing friends. While I was gone, our daycare provider had a family member die suddenly and we had to figure out what we were going to do for childcare. We had 2 awesome friends who stepped up to the plate and offered to watch our children for us. So I just want to take a moment to say thank you to Jodi and Ruth for being there for us. We are all in a church small group together - and we all hit it off from the very beginning. Our friendship is one of the ways that I see God at work, and I am so thankful.

Yesterday morning - as I was standing outside looking at the sunrise, I was hit with how very much God loves us, because he is in the small things, and in the big things. Although we don't deserve this kind of love, he gives it freely anyway.

Isn't that awesome?

San Antonio is one of our favorite places in the world. We used to go there at least once a year...for about 10 years in a row, when we lived in Texas.

I hope you get to go to the Alamo and take the tour. I also recommend the IMAX presentation about the Alamo.

The Riverwalk is a lot of fun, too. Some incredible places to eat, too.

I just love having you guys in my life! Ronnie had a blast & we need to get the kids together more often. Maybe I can do it weekly once my job settles down! I had a lot of fun!
