February was Sweet!

Early in the month I saw this picture and kept going back to it. So much, that I made it my cover pic on Facebook. I'm not exactly sure why, except I hold so many wonderful memories of Disneyland in my heart...combined with the declaration it seemed to be  making--it felt almost prophetic to me. A couple weeks later my husband informed me that he had finagled a way to take the younger set (3/4) of our kids with him to Disneyland. I was almost jealous! I prayed about it and left it in the Lord's hands. It turns out he was able to finagle us all entry into the park, compliments of a generous friend, who works there.

It was an extremely crowded day but I didn't even realize it. I was shocked when I learned just how crowded it really was. A friend told me, the main parking structure and entrance to the Downtown Disney lots were blocked because they were so full. Patrons were being directed to a remote lot, that required taking a complimentary shuttle back to the park! (we arrived before the lots were full) My kids were so great though. They were patient and appreciative, didn't complain at all. It really showed me how much my patience and tolerance levels have really grown too because I didn't even feel irritated by the crowds. .

We were able to go to California Adventure too. It's been a few years since we've paid 'The Big D' a visit and so much has changed. We saw the Aladdin show, one of our favorites. Kurtis fell asleep right as it started though! There wasn't much time to see or do anything else before we headed back to catch the fireworks. They ended up being cancelled due to wind and weather conditions but we still got to catch Fantasmic and ride Indiana Jones before we left.

I was a bit nervous about the day. I'll be honest, being a 'wife-in-limbo' is very taxing, mentally, spiritually and especially emotionally. I try to stay true to who I am, in all matters... It was a nice treat for the ktbunch and I was happy to be a part of this day and watch them enjoy themselves. Kurtis was even chosen to participate in the Jedi Training Academy show and he loved it. I think the kids and I had a great time and it was a blessing over all. Life can be bittersweet. I choose to intentionally stay focused on the sweet

    Katy, I loved this story and seeing all the happy pictures of you and your family together. You are a treasure of a person. Do you know that? You are creative and innovative and fearless! I so admire you and all you have been able to accomplish in your life, despite the obstacles and the difficulties. Your life and your mindset bring God glory. All you have been able to do and withstand would be impossible for a mere mortal. You are clearly connected to " The Vine" in an amazing way. His strength is displayed through you as you lay it all at His feet.

    If anyone else is reading this, I just want you to know what a genuine treasure this woman is. I have never known anyone else quite like her. You are blessed if you know her, and if this is your first visit to her site, then take the time to get to know her. She is a rare treasure.

    Love you Katy! You inspire me.
