Randomness From The Big Apple=)

I have been posting a lot of things about our trip, pictures, and our "daily outings", ect. Well, this morning, I have a lot of things on my mind....so thought I would do a "Bethanne style" randomness post....=) Here goes....

I am not a fan of rain...in TN...and I am def not a fan of rain in the city....We walk everywhere we go, so trying to dodge other people, plus their umbrellas-ugh! ....I am a short girl too...so the back of my jeans get wet...and that is a huge annoyance to me....Yes, I am in NYC-but I still need the sun to shine...=)

I have talked to my boys every single night since we have gotten here...and I still miss them like crazy...They are my life...

I love spending one on one time with Macey-She is a special girl...and she and I have already seemed to get closer to each other...but she misses her brothers too...She told me yesterday that she couldn't wait until they got here so she could give them both a big hug...Awww...so sweet....

I talked to a friend last night...and it made me smile..I love hearing from you guys back home-We feel like we are in "another world" here-so it is so good to talk to you all...

Having to quit my previous job still bothers me...I have done a lot of Bible reading and praying about this-but it is still hard for me not to be angry about the way the whole thing was handled...I heard that my job is now posted-which bugs me....I will back home by the time they get someone interviewed, hired and trained...and now when I get home, I have to start "job searching" myself...ugh...will try not to be down about this-moving on.....

I am amazed at the faith of my children....We have spoke with Macey's agent a few times while we have been here, but no opportunities yet....which can be frustrating-especially to me and James-I mean, I quit my job-because I felt like I was doing what God wanted for my life...and we get here, and only one casting...but Macey constantly reminds us that God is in control-and as long as we are in HIS will-we need to sit back and wait on HIM(my version of what she said=)...She is one amazing girl...and she is right....

I have been thinking a lot about my photography business....I would love to photograph full time when I get home....wondering if I will be able to do that????

Did I mention that I need some sunshine?

We have had a blast playing UNO....Macey is becoming a pro at the game...We have been playing cards in the evenings-and she is loving it.....

I have a "list" of things that I want to do in my life....some people call it a "bucket list"...I have recently done one of the things on my list...=) it is a little crazy...but I am considering sharing it with you guys...maybe...soon...we shall see.....

I love to get comments on my blog....Comment please!!! =)

Well, I am going to get off the computer for now....and go start our day...Have a good one...
Love and miss you guys back home.....

I have been thinking of you and Macey a lot. Your "faith in action" is making a tremendous impact on a lot of people. Thanks for that. God Bless and stay safe. (and YES, you are missed at work!!) Peggy

Yes!!!!! I haven't said much about the job thing but I am right there with you. I still don't understand it except to agree with Macey and God is in control. I have planned to call you for 2 days and we have had two makeup games. I will text you tomorrow and see when it will be a good time to call. Looks like you all are having a great time. Can't wait to see you!
Love ya!

Don't get discouraged. Remember God's time is not the same as our time. We just have to learn to be patient and hang in there.

It looks like you are having a great time in NYC! I would love to go there someday. I admire you for the decision you have made. I would love to read your bucket list - maybe it will give me some inspiration!!

Tanja said...

Okay, just for fun, I'm going to guess about your bucket list item... you got a tatoo, didn't you? :-) Okay, next guess... you kissed James, in the rain, in Times Square? Nah, that wouldn't be it. You can kiss that man any ol' time you want, pretty much any place, too. Well, I'm tapped out. Those are my guesses. Thinking of you all often.

i can empathize on the job feeling since i am going on 2 months of feeling low about that one now. all i can say is keep your head up. today i got some possible good news after 2 whole months of feeling low and after 2 months you start to want to give up but God has his own timing even if it isn't the timing you wanted so we just have to be patient and wait and see what he has in store for us. =) keep the faith. something will come thru with macey too if it is God's will and if not...then at least you guys have had a WONDERFUL experience together that you will treasure forever!!!! everything that you all are doing and experiencing now is helping all FIVE of you grow to be stronger individuals even though it seems hard now. =) love and miss you guys!!!

I'm so enjoying watching y'all live in NYC...It's one of my "bucket list" things, not live, just to visit.

Cassie & Nicole...Really Work is SO OVERRATED!!! Believe ME! God has BIG plans for ya both, but it's only going to be in HIS time, enjoy while you can...

So, This "Bucket List" thingy your thinking about telling us...Im pretty sure I can guess...and guess right...For some reason I've seen 3 of my friends do the same thing...and Im thinking you might be the 4th...

Ok I think my comment's have been a "BethAnne" post..so I'll go now!
Still praying for ya'll in NYC!!!
Stay Strong and KEEP THE FAITH!!!
