wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.

are you kidding me?

As if all the aforementioned things aren't divine enough, I have to tell you what else has happened.

I am worried about not working. I am worried about not being able to have a place to put sawyer while I adjust to staying home with Ridge, b/c we can't afford

The school has worked things out where I should be able to at least collect my paycheck for a few months due to sick leave/state laws/sick leave sharing where others are willing to donate some days for me. My principal has been more than supportive and has told me I have a job waiting for me when I am able to come back. He is checking on things for me and taking care of some details. His secretary told me that there were some more good things happening and she'd let my friend Melissa tell me those things. I could tell it was going to be something that brought me to my knees...and boy was it. Melissa calls me today and tells me that she knows I am worried about Sawyer. She has worked it out where he has a place at the 3 year old program in our school district. His tuition and lunch and school supplies have all .... been....paid for. all of it. are you kidding me? seriously? God is so good. so so so so so good. We are so blessed to have a community and to have friends and co workers and church members who love us so much.

A normal family like us never expects to be blessed as much as we are being blessed. This has been an amazing ride.

God is so faithful.

This all brought me to tears. God is so good!!! It is to amazing when you think your world is falling apart, he comes in and shows you that all along he has been there, planning and taking care of business. I am continuing to pray for strength and understanding, y'all are an amazing family and are speaking volumes about the love of Christ through this storm.

Alisha, I am a friend of Lillie's. It broke my heart to hear in your words a couple of days ago how tired you were and that your "spirit was down". I am so thankful that HE has lifted you up and shown you He is holding your precious family in His hands. Ridge is blessed to have been placed in your family! He will always know God.

You are blessed and God is very good!

Alisha, what a blessing your posts are. You are a testimony of true faith and trust in God. My heart aches for you and Brandon. Prayers are being said for little Ridge.
