Thankfulness Day 227-231:: Catching up!

 We've been busy over here so I got behind!  I'll catch us up!

Thankfulness Day 227:: Our house has been sick free for quite some time!  Kai started complaining of an ear ache so I gave him garlic oil drops in his ear for the rest of the day and it went away!  I'm thankful for home remedies!

Thankfulness Day 228::  Got to worship on stage with huzzy today and I am so thankful we get to sing and praise the Lord together

Thankfulness Day 229::  Took yesterday off of any business related stuff and got 4 orders today!  I'm very thankful for that.

Thankfulness Day 230::  Gotta love Chick Fil A!  Did you know that on their bags for childrens meals they have a word search with the fruits of the Spirit?  So cool, I'm so thankful that we have a restaurant

Thankfulness Day 231:: Wordless Wednesday!  We've got a new Pink Lady Bug Tutu and Shirt to share!  Ladybugs are so popular!  Maybe everyone wants to be a Bug???

And don't forget the launching of our new Boys Tie Applique Shirts!  Right now we have a selection of 3 prints but we will work our way up to 5!

Today I am thankful for Sweet Lily Tutus and the wonderful thing that God is doing as He lets me partner with Him!

Thankfulness Day 226:: Carlsbad

After a 5 hour marathon of hair color and cutting (insert Yikes!!) I came home to my hubby telling me that the interview he just had in Carlsbad was amazing.  So amazing in fact he said this "If this whole last year and half of church interviews falling through all because we needed to wait for an opportunity like this, I could see why.  This is where God is leading us, I've never felt so encouraged."

Hmmm, something is brewing..

Today I am thankful that my hubby got poured into and i

s starting to see some possible end in sight?

Thankfulness Day 225:: My Tie Shirt

As I'm tucking Nash in, I take off his 'Tie Shirt' that I made him and he says "Mommy I just love my Tie Shirt and I want to wear it forever."

I love that I made him something he loves!  Let me tell you that that boy doesn't love a lot of things!

Today I am thankful it's the little things that make me so happy.

Thankfulness Day 222:: Garbage

For the last 5 1/2 years I've had an attached garage, and therefore had a garbage can and a garbage service who emptied it for me.

However since the job loss, recession, living with my parents, and now in a condo, we have to walk.  Walk far, every day, to the dumpster, with two children, and lots of trash.

Are you saying you are thankful for trash Cheri?

Why yes, yes I am!

Having a garage with a trash can is a luxary that I took advantage of and didn't realize what a great thing it really was.

So today I am thankful that I had a garage with a trash barrel for so long and that I live in a place where we must get rid of trash and be sanitary.

Thankfulness Day 221:: Sabbath

The last two weeks have been filled with orders.  I've been filled with joy!  However I realized that I needed a day of rest. 

I've decided to take Sundays off of any work or checking my work email.  Let me tell you, it is HARD!  I know that putting God first is best but it's just so hard to take the entire day off when I'm usually busy creating.

So each Sunday I am going to reflect on the Tutus and all that goes into the business and ask God what he wants, which direction I should take, and where I am not following him.

Today I am thankful that even my God rested.

Thankfulness Day 220:: Superhero Party!

We had a Superhero meets Star Wars Party for Kai today!

 The Boys dressed up with some new Sweet Lily Tutus ~Boy Version~ Creations!

The first thing the kids did was decorate their Superhero Capes with Glittery Stars, then they wore them and flew off to defeat the bad guys!

Going to prance at any moment!

For a game the kids each got a piece of a puzzle and had to work together to create the Star Wars picture by sticking them to the Velcro.

Of course we had to have a Donut Cake as a reward to all this hard work!

It's a Bird, it's a Plane, oh it's Super Kai!

Today I am thankful for a wonderful party filled with great friends we will have for a long time!

Thankfulness Day 219:: Nurture

Nurture is starting soon and we are trying to get together our Table Leaders and our vision for the ministry.  Nurture has been a place where we support each other in prayer, get a nice little break from the kiddos, and hear a good message. 

Did I mention the food?? It's a rotating potluck and you'll never find a better buffet!  These women know how to cook!  So if you have Tuesday or Wednesday morning off, would like some friendships with other women and live in the Orange County area, please come!

Today I am thankful that this new season in our lives is starting and I can't wait to see how God uses this year.

Thankfulness Day 218:: Kai's Birthday!

Kai had his birthday this week.  I can't believe I'm old enough to have a 5 year old!  He has brought so much joy into our lives.  His personality brings life into any room and his heart is so big.

Today I am thankful for Kai.

Thankfulness Day 217:: Wordless Wednesday

Nash makes me watch this movie EVERYDAY!!  What does YOUR child make YOU watch?

Thankfulness Day 216:: A job

I got offered an interview for a dream job.  Well it's third in line. 

1st job-Stay at home mom
2nd job-Tutu Business
3rd job-Job in ministry

So it ranked #3 and I had to do some major praying because I would love to work there again. But the more I prayed I realized that I was suppose to commit to Sweet Lily Tutus and that God wasn't over with it yet.  Taking a part time job would take up a lot of my time and I would have to put that business on hold.

So I said no because I couldn't find a good person to watch the boys and I didn't feel that God was leading me in that direction quite yet.

Today I am thankful that I was able to commit my business to the Lord.

Thankfulness Day 215:: The Priestly Blessing

This spoke to me today:

May the Lord bless you
and protect you
May the Lord smile on you
and be gracious to you
May the Lord show you His favor
and give you His peace

Today I am thankful for a prayer that gives us hope.

Thankfulness Day 212:: Nomination!

This is really exciting for me and there is a great God story to go with it! 

I've been dropped Kai off at school for two weeks now and it dawned on me yesterday that I hadn't seen a woman that works there in awhile and I enjoyed sharing tutu ideas with her.  So yesterday I decided I was going to try and find her.  As I was walking to the school office I spot her in a window that is usually closed!  I wave and she tells me how to get to her.  She immediately tells me she 'voted' for me! 
Huh?  For what I said and she told me for the Orange County Blogger Spotted Awards!  What!!??  I was nominated for something?

First lets just say how cool is it that God puts her on my heart, makes her easy to find, and then she tells me this!  I would have never known!  Seriously who knew that I business that originated from my husband being unemployed for over a year would turn into something a bit more then ordinary? 

 I am so blessed and so grateful to be recognized!  Seriously overwhelmed and a bit emotional.  All this to say....Could I get your vote?

OC Blog Awards

Thank you thank you thank you!!

Today I am thankful for being nomiated.  I believe God has much bigger plans for this business then maybe I has thought.  I will go whatever direction He has for me.

Thankfulness Day 203:: Wordless Wednesday

Kai caught his first fish!  It's about the size of him!  Let's just say he was a bit timid and didn't want to touch it.  We threw it back and Kai was on top of the world the rest of the day!

Today I am thankful that Kai and my dad have a fishing bond.
