thanksgiving break

Kyle is working tonight and gets off tomorrow morning for a nice long Thanksgiving break. Like over a week break. I know. Crazy, right? Trust me, he'll get to make up for it with working Christmas. We'll take what we can get. We can't wait to spend time with him. He has been gone way too much lately. He has worked overnight three nights in the last week.

I guess we should be thankful at this point that he still has a place to work. Kyle said something last night that stuck with me. He said he can't let himself worry about the hospital drama, he can only focus on the things that are certain... like taking boards in December and improving his surgical skills.

I'm tellin' ya, God has really been working on our faith in the last year. How liberating it is to turn your worries over to him and trust him with your future. How comforting it is to have a husband who reminds me of that when I let the worry begin to creep in.

fun fact... I snapped this picture of Kyle while he was scrubbing the garage floor with gasoline.

8 tellin' me what I want to hear!:

You are an amazing photographer.

I thought the hospital drama was done for you guys??? Didn't you say he was moving to a different hospital in Muskogee?

Wow. A whole week. Sweet. At this point I'd be happy for a few days. ;)

Wow, a whole week!? How exciting! Since Randy worked the ER this month, he tried to front-load the month (he just has to complete 20 12-hour shifts) so that he could spend some uninterrupted time with us and my parents next week. I'm really looking forward to it. We've really be missing each other during the past 2 months. UGH! Tell me it *will* get better. ;-)

PS...scrubing the garage floor with *gasoline*? Help a not-so-handy handigirl out here...why gasoline?

One sermon from Craig G. LifeChurch stuck with me about how to visulize putting "me" (your worries)into a large box with God written on it instead of putting God (the small box) into our large box with Me written on it.
Love this picture of Kyle...gasoline? Did you wear a mask son?

Enjoy his time off together!

Scrubbing the floor with gasoline? What's the story there?
