Every time I write something on here, there's been a larger gap in time since my last entry. But I'm not going to be too hard on myself considering I just finished my first semester at Liberty with straight A's!! I don't know how I would have done it without Josiah, though. He was so helpful. There were nights he helped with dinner, cleaned the kitchen, read to the kids and watched movies with them, and then helped get them into bed...all so I could get assignments completed on time.
So how lucky am I that I get to spend the rest of my life with him!! On Thanksgiving Day he asked me to marry him. We all knew the proposal was coming, which made it pretty funny, but when it finally arrived, it became real to me. I am so grateful and happy and content. There have been days when I have literally cried out to God praising and thanking Him for the many blessings in my life. I have my health, beautiful, healthy children, family that love me, a wonderful man who wants to spend the rest of his life with me (and reminds me of that regularly), and a new family that accepts us just as we are with open arms and open hearts. *Sigh* So blessed.
That's it for now. Tons of planning to do for the wedding before the spring semester starts on January 16th. Wedding is on May 12th!!

A new year, a new life....
