Learning to bloom!

I always say that I want to bloom where I'm planted. I trust God but somehow I always want to do something else.  Funny because I hate change.

Monday I had to go into work on my vacation.  I think people were more upset than me.  I had decided that even on the hardest and suckiest of days that I would be thankful for my job. When you work at McDonald's it is not so imperative that you come in on your vacation, you don't have that kind of responsibility (most of the time) but with the responsibility I have, comes a good living for my daughter and I.  Blooming!!!

I love cooking for people!  I made a giant vat of mac&cheese and sent some to one family, and tomorrow (or maybe today) I will deliver mac&cheese and Keilbasa to two other families!  Blooming on vacation - I was supposed to be in NY!

I have learned that in order to bloom, I must be thankful!  I wrote out thank you notes for some gifts I had received, I hope to get them in the mail soon!  It wasn't really the gift I was thankful for, though I was SUPER thankful, it was for the person who gave it to me.  How thankful I am for the peeps God has placed in my life!

Isaiah 35:2 it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the LORD, the splendor of our God

We were upset because we KNOW you needed some time away, wherever that may be!
