I hate making decisions

I have a lot of changes going on in my life and just to add to the craziness I really want to host a foreign exchange student for the upcoming school year. When I first heard of the idea, my eyes lit up and I wanted to jump at the opportunity. After considering all the costs and getting feedback from others, I am not receiving the reactions I was hoping for. It is really hard for me to make a decision when others aren't as gung ho as I am about it. Do I take every one's opinion and like always and give in? Or do I say "hey, this is something I want to do" and go for it? This is how I am ALL the time. I can't make decisions for the fear of what other people will say/do. Put yourself in my shoes...what would you do?

The Claddagh

We all heard of my little fiasco with my wedding rings...if you don't know this story I will just fill you in quickly. I put on my wedding rings too soon and I couldn't get them off. I tried EVERYTHING, my last hope was the Marengo Fire Department. They had to cut off my rings and I still haven't gotten them fixed. Needless to say, we went on a mini vacation to the Dells this past weekend, while we were there we stopped at one of our usual stores, The Indian Trading Post. I fell in love with a ring I have always wanted, an Irish Claddagh ring. I made puppy dog eyes at Noah, and the next thing you know we were walking out of the store and I my ring finger finally looked complete. The key to the Claddagh is which way the heart is facing. Wear the ring with the heart facing out, means your heart is open, where the ring facing in (towards your heart) means your heart is taken. This is the second best thing to my actual wedding ring.

Spring is here!...I hope

It may not look like it outside but I feel the spring slowly taking over. Spring is not my favorite season but I do love what it means to me. Rebirth, starting over and second chances. We planted some Tulips last fall and they have started to poke through the ground and my favorite part is I can almost not wear my winter coat everywhere I go! I have a lot of things going on with buying a house and looking for a new job but I feel like what better time for new things than the Spring? I am even hoping that Wyatt will finally walk!!! (I don't know what his deal is) So spring stick around this time and shut down the winter season...PLEASE!

What's in a name?

“A good name is more desirable than great riches.” Proverbs 22:1
When we chose to name our son "Wyatt" it was because the meaning was so powerful. Wyatt means, little warrior, brave/strong. Who knew that nine months later (his first surgery) Wyatt would have to take his name literally. We are still uncertain as far as what lies ahead for our son, but we do know that he is in God's hands and with that in mind our little warrior was made strong for a good reason! I couldn't imagine naming Wyatt anything else that would have fit him so well.
