We FINALLY got a house today!!!! Or, maybe I should say that the bank accepted the offer that they gave us, except we made them eat the closing costs. We have been through hell and high waters to get a house for our little family, but I can finally say that it was all worth it! I know I am not the only one in this world that has been a hard working person, but I have been working since I was 13. Everything that we own, we have worked very hard for. I wish, in my dreams, that one day, I will be on the Ellen show or something and someone will give me some kind of selfless award, but the reality of my situation is that my husband told me that I am an amazing mother the other night when I was getting my kids ready for bed. He looked at me with such amazement and made me feel so awesome! That is the best kind of appreciation...just as amazing as any kind of award. Yes, I have something with my relationship that not many people in this world get to have (even people that REALLY deserve it), but I am so thankful for it, and everything I have. I am at peace in my heart and thank God for our love and all that he has blessed us with....amen.
