|A park in Huntersville yesterday.|
We had two more people come look at our house this past weekend. No takers. On a positive - it is great that we have had so many showings. There at least is still interest in the house. My faith is becoming a bit stronger that God has a buyer in the absolute perfect timing.
I just wanted to mention that last Thursday we met up with another blessing. When our friends, Jason & Christy Borg, found out that we were coming to the Charlotte area they quickly hooked us up on facebook with two couples that they have been friends with for a long time who live here. These two ladies have been awesome providing me with information and support before we even got here. Well, Thursday the kids and I stayed down in our area after school in order to go to the scouting recruitment night at 6:30. One of these new facebook friends, Mandy who lives minutes from the school, offered to meet up with us and chit chat. It was a complete blessing to meet her and be reassured from someone else who lives hours away from her family!! When I got to girl scout night I had already felt taken care of by God by my time with Mandy and really was just ready to sign papers and get home - it is exhausting to kill time sometimes! Then God said "Here's some more for you" and the mom across from me struck up a conversation, said that she moved here last year from Connecticut and offered me lots of info about the school and gave me her information. Our daughters will be in a Jr. Scout troop together.
I also am continuing to receive encouragement through emails and texts from friends back home! Even from those who I didn't expect it from... I keep thinking - have I ever been this supportive to my friends going through something big?? Amazing! That is what you guys are to me!
In my last post I said that it had been easy to see God in each moment. This is just a bit of it. He does this for everyone - not just for me. What did He bless you with today?? What are you thankful for? What is the positive in each situation you are in? I used to be a pretty "the glass is half empty" kind of person, but I made a conscious effort to try to see the positive in things a few years back and I am SO thankful that a new habit was formed. (Even though old habits make a reappearance every now and then - I can throw a pity party like no other!). My mentor and friend, Pat started me with a simple exercise years ago. Write down 10 things you are thankful for...man, when I started it was hard to come up with them... I am happier and more content. Those who have been friends with me for longer than 4 or 5 years can attest to the change and are thankful for it I'm sure! See - the first thing on your list of things you are thankful for - you don't have to be around an Amy who's being a Negative Nellie!! (at least for today) :)
