It's been a very busy several weeks~ I got through all A's!  Thank you Lord for allowing me to "get it".  I was so worried with being tired that I would not do well~God is good!  The new job is going very well~ the people are incredibly nice and helpful.  I have got the swing of things and my boss is very happy that I know what I am doing.  I am looking at it as a foot in the door....Lord willing given time and an open position and I can move up.  I had only been there a week and they had a birthday cake and card for me....I was very surprised...pleasantly.  Today I found out my boss is sending the whole office for pedicures on Friday for Christmas.  I am so thankful that God has given me this opportunity.  Having to work now out of the home....after working for Tom and myself for so many years~ it's a stretch...but the Lord has shown me mercy and grace.  My brother blessed me with money for my birthday and I was able to go Christmas shopping!  So happy~ it has been years since I have really been able to go out and shop till I drop for my kids~ I had a blast!  We are going to have a quiet Christmas.  Christmas Eve service and than we will read the Christmas story as we have since the kids were born.....Christmas I am cooking.  Gabby has requested comfort food....her favorites.  The girls and I will be baking and having fun.  There will not be a moment where I won't be missing my dad.  This was his favorite time of year but I know he would want me to be there for my family.....I can hear him in my head~ so I will try to make it as special as I can.  So many changes happened this year....I am not one for change but God is always growing me and stretching me away from my comfort zone.  Thank you Lord for always giving me the strength to get through~
