Happy Passover/Easter ya'll!!!!

To all my non-Jewish friends out there......Wishing a Happy Easter/ Good Friday!!!

To all my Jewish friends/family out there......Happy Passover!!!

(the pic was the best I could do for both world's.....whew!!!!!!!!)

So folks........I was awarded yet another blogger award by my dear blogger friend
Kate at I Can't Whistle . Kate is such a sweet and heartfelt woman. She has shared her struggles and successes with grace and honesty. I love reading her never fails to put a smile on my face. After an enormously long and difficult infertility journey, she has finally gotten preggers (WOOHOO!!) Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers folks!!

Anyhoo.....she so lovingly nominated me for this award:

The Sisterhood Award
This award is also given for bloggers showing great attitude or great gratitude.

Thank you means a lot to me!!!

Per the rules of this award, I am supposed to pass this on to 10 other bloggers however
most of the lovely ladies that I read have already gotten I am going to change up the rules slightly (yep - I'm gonna do it) I am going to give this to a "real life" friend who I think definitely deserves it!

Sending this award out to my friend Linda B.
This incredible woman came into my life at a time when I was in a really bad place. She always had this phenomenal sense of calm & peace about her. She put out her hand to me and guided me through that rough time and has been with me ever since. She has an over-abundance of love, wisdom and grace that she is always willing to share. She totally deserves this award and at least a hundred others in my opinion!
Love you LINDA - you are the best!!!

In other news, our new baby kitten, Zoey might be coming home with us this really all depends on if she takes to eating kitten food. We are eager to get her home with us but I know it will happen when it happens.

It's funny.....I was thinking to myself that if I am this anxious, nervous, excited and impatient about bringing home our baby kitten, I cannot begin to think about what it will be like to bring home our baby.

I think that is the first time I have actually put into words that come hell or high water,
Jim and I will have a child.
I need to stay in this moment and in this belief.
I have been so used to this place of wanting, hoping, praying, longing, and emptiness.
This place of being a couple....being a wife.

The thought of actually getting to be a mom and part of a family is totally new territory for me.
I am opening myself to this possibility today.....I am going to try and stay in this scary place.
Maybe if I stay here long enough, it will become comfortable and eventually will come to pass!

Today I am grateful for:
1. chocolate....need I say more!
2. walking with hubby hand in hand - love those private moments
3. our business on doing it!
4. Spring in Ohio.....everything is starting to bloom
5. making it through my first week back at work
6. laughter.....LOVE IT!
7. my relationship with God - she is always with me!
8. .63 Polar Pop (fountain soda they sell at the local convenient store) YUM!!!
9. Sex - NOT BABY DANCING - with my husband
10. My computer - don't know what I would do without being able to blog!

Great list, as always. Especially the chocolate. I've only got the rest of today and tomorrow and then I'm going to have a chocolate feast! Pretty sure I'll be sick, but it WILL be SO worth it! Have a wonderful weekend and do your best to stay in THIS spot! You deserve it!
