God Really Does Provide

So, most of you know that things are tight in our household right now, having the ordination and it being Christmas doesn't help with the money flow either. (all well worth it though!) :) We haven't been to the store since the end of November, before I left for my trip. We were needing to go, but trying to hold out till next pay day.
I get to work today and I am walking back to my bone chilling office and a fellow coworker comes up to me and tells me that she is handing out her gifts to all the employees. I really didn't know what to say. In my head I was like, "Okay good for you." But I think I said something to the effect of, "Oh how nice of you to do that for everyone!" and continued to walk away. She then came into my office and told me that she was unable to bring my gift in and then paused for my response. At this point I thought maybe she didn't have her morning coffee yet and she was just being wired. My response was, "Well, okay, do you need help with it?" Her response was, "Yeah, see I bought you groceries and some toys for Noah and I want to just put them in your car now, so people don't see." Tears began to fill my eyes and all I could do was give her a great big hug and tell her Thank You!! When we walked out to the car I was not expecting anything much, maybe just the staples to get me thru. To my surprise she kept bring out boxes and bags of stuff! She even bought me a turkey and a big package of bacon! She bought me so much that it almost didn't fit in the back of my friends Ford Explorer. (I carpool so I didn't have my own car with me!)Tears kept filling my eyes and all I could say was thank you.
What a wonderful thing she did for my family, what a wonderful heart she has, and best of all, WOW God provided again, thru her!

Have a very blessed Christmas!!

MS Walk

Hi All,
Okay mark you calendars, the MS Walk for 2007 is on April 14th at UC Irvine. It usually is in the morning and then they have food and games afterward. We had a great experience last year doing this in Irvine instead of in Lancaster. Its about a 15-20min longer drive but well worth it. The campus is beautiful and it has more sponsors, which means more fun and food! I will let you all know when my webpage is up so you all can take a look, read my story, see who is on my team, join our team or make donations if you want. Till then have a great day!!

Real Working Women

Well, I just got back from my first real business trip! I went to Las Vegas for a HR training thing, 3 days of INTENSE learning. My head hurts and is full of HR laws and procedures that I will most likely never use unless we move out of state. They are implementing a new designation just for us HR people out here in CA because we are so damn different!! Unfortunately, I have to know everything, even if it doesnt apply to my company, in order to take the national exam.
I didnt stay any where special, I didnt go out and I only used a $1 on the slots...and lost. I was, however, able to order room service, eat an entire order of creme bruele and take a 2 hour bath with no one banging on the door, every night. Eventhough that was great, I really missed home. I missed my baby, my hubby, my friends, and gasp, even my work! Its good to be back among normal people and not stuck in a room, with over a hundred people, all asking, "Does your company has a strategic plan for employee retention in place for the new year?"
Lord, I am so glad to be home!!
