Goodness, it's been quite a day for me! We have had tornado warnings all day today and hail. The hail ruined my precious little car :( After waking up at 5 am for school and driving 45 minutes there, they sent us home about an hour after I got there due to bad weather. On the bright side, I got to spend the day with my adorable little nephew :) Me and Kayden hid out from the storms in the bathtub singing Elmo songs and eating baby food, well I sang and Kayden ate. hehehehe :) The power was out for 4 hours and we heard some frightening howling sounds. We have some damage to the house but other than that we are all great and blessed :) Sadly though, I missed a lunch date with my best friend that I haven't seen since graduation. But thankfully we are all safe, and we haven't heard of any deaths due to the storms. I think that calls for some wonderful praise :)
This is a picture of Kayden after the tornadoes passed, and a whole can of squash later :)
-I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord." Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem. Psalm 122:1-2.
God Bless :)

We started the fundraiser for March of Dimes at work today, and this fundraiser just makes my heart smile! March of Dimes is a fundraiser that helps mothers carry babies to full-term and to help babies that were born to small. This is dear to my heart because I was born weighing 3lb 8oz. My parents struggled for months trying to pay the hospital bills. I also suffered. I'm now a healthy 18 year old. My friend also just had triplets, none of them weighed more than 3lb. So when I found out that we were doing this fundraiser, you bet my day became a million times better! So far today, we have already raised $350!!!! AMAZING HUH??? :) One man even donated $25!!! I ask that you please donate when you go to a store that is supporting March of Dimes, even if it is just $1. Any bit helps.
God Bless! :)
God Bless! :)

I am brand new to blogging, but it is something I really want to try and stick with. So for my very first blog, I will start off with just everything that my blog will be about.
