From busy life and all the stress.
No time for fun or family,
No time for my hubby to hold me.
I wonder if we will make it through,
This thing called nursing school.
Will my family know me at the end.
Or will they say "That used to be my friend."
It is scary, trying, tiring, hard.
Thank God this is a temporary sod.
This season is short not here to stay.
I thank God for that each and every day!

School is GREAT... I really mean it. School is amazing I am learning so much about people, medicine, the body, and myself. God has shown me from the very first day of class that nursing is the field for me. I am being shown how much of a ministry nursing will be for me. I am honored to announce that my fellow class mates have elected me as BSN Class of 2011 President. Out of ninety other people I was the sole nominee for the position and am so very honored that they think that highly of me. I just hope that I can represent them with the best of my ability. So far my grades have been very good I have one "c" oops the majority of that exam was history, which I BOMBED! But my other exam grades are "A's" which I am happy about. I really feel in my heart I owe it to the people I will be caring for some day to make the best grades. They deserve my best because their lives will be in my hands one day.
I know this blog seems to be saturated with things about "me" but I wanted to catch you ladies up on the latest happenings of my life.
By the way I will be an official Aunt in about 9 days or so. My sister is going to have a baby boy named Jonah Levi. Yeah I am so excited she is going to be a fabulous mom because she is an awesome Aunt to my kids.
I just want you ladies to know that I do keep up with your blogs I just don't always have time to leave a comment or post my own blog but I really care about your lives and how God is working and moving in your lives. So please keep sharing.

Have you ever stopped and really thought about that statement? We hear all the time to never trust your heart because it is deceitful. The bible says the heart is wicked and who can know it. Our efforts to serve others unselfishly can still be tainted with wrong motives as pure as we try to keep it. We do have wicked hearts and they are tainted with humaness or sinfulness. Those of us that are believers are no longer bound by our sin but yet we still struggle with it daily. So my point is we are tainted, redeemed saints.
But God His heart...wow just His nature is pure and upright. Never could His motive be wrong or tainted with sinfully selfish desires. He always knows what He is doing, even though we might feel as though we are standing in the middle of a tornado watching the world swirl around us trying to keep up with the spinning and keep our eyes on the light above. There is never anything that happens to us that has not been sent straight from the heart of God. The heart of God...girls we can trust the heart of God and that He has every plan worked out for our growth and benefit.

Let me set up our Christmas time frame...
We had Christmas early with our kids because we were traveling to my parents house in Tyler to spend Christmas day with them...so here we are...
Christmas Eve eve I wrapped the presents...
Christmas Eve morning the children opened presents...
Christmas Eve night we traveled to Tyler...
Christmas Day we spent with my family...
Christmas Eve eve...that night we told Sarah and Grayson "In the morning when you wake up you will get to open up your presents." At this point there were no gifts under their little 3 foot trees. So we sent them to bed and I proceeded to wrap each of their gifts with the greatest care. Sarah had princess paper for her gifts and Grayson had Mickey Mouse paper for his presents. I ran out of paper to wrap all their gifts so Bryan picked me up some generic red Christmas paper to finish wrapping the rest of the gifts which were like two more. After I finished wrapping the gifts I took pictures (those later). I wanted the before pictures.
12:00am Creak..our door opens and little Sarah walks in...immediately I thought oh no she has opened the presents...but she hadn't I got up and returned her to her room.
3:30am Creak...I said "come here..." To which the reply is " I got a dinosaur with a remote." (Grayson) At that moment we both flew out of the bed to find utter distruction in our living room.
Grayson had opened all of his presents plus the red wrapped ones. He knew the princess paper was not his so he didn't open Sarah's gifts. He only opened one of her gifts because it was wrapped in the red paper. But ladies you see, when I tell you that he opened his gifts he OPENED them...the paper was off and the boxes were ripped open. He got new games for Christmas and the game boxes were ripped open and the contents were spread out over the entire room. I was so upset...for two reasons one because I didn't get to see his face when he discovered that he got a dinosaur robot and two because he got up without coming to wake us up. I was so upset I cried...it broke my heart. We explained to Grayson that he had done wrong and hurt mommy and daddy's heart and sent him back to bed. My first instict was to take all his things away because I was mad that he had done that. But after considering and putting myself in his shoes. I am sure I wouldn't have been able to resist the temptation either. You see when Bryan and I went to bed that night all the recliners in the couch were down and the blankets were folded and when we discovered the distruction one recliner was out and a blanket was unfolded. So we speculate that Grayson got up and sat on the couch for a good while he probably sat and stared at the tree for a time before the utter temptation over took him and he couldn't resist not opening them anymore. So after he went back to bed, I calmed down, I decided that I was going to rewrap his presents so that we could see him open them in the morning. This time we told him that when he woke up he needed to come to Mommy and Daddy's bedroom before opening any presents. That was a small yet very important detail that we left out the first time he went to bed. Which could have solved the entire situation before it happened.
After they were rewrapped
Notice there is no Mickey Mouse paper!
4:30 am- I finally climb back into bed and hope and pray that the morning goes better.
One of the main dissapointments of the whole situation is that I took before pictures when I wrapped the presents the first time and after he destroyed the presents and then after I rewrapped them. In the middle of the night I thought I uploaded all the pictures to the computer but all of them didn't transfer before I reformatted the camera to be ready for the next morning. So I don't have before and after distruction pictures...after all I was half asleep when I was transfering them to the computer but I am still very upset that I lost them.
To be continued...
