Quote of the Week 2/16

I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.
-Mother Teresa

Short but sweet quote this week..... I picked up this quote in a conversation with a fellow marine wife at a gathering of ours. We were discussing how she learned she was pregnant with her son and how she didnt know how or even think she wanted to be a mom. A close friend to her told her this quote and she just repeated it to herself through her pregnancy. Now her son is 4 and her and her husband are still happily married. Im not a huge God person, I attend church once in a while. To tell you the truth when I do its more to spend time with my grandmother who attends every sunday. But its nice to think that there is someone else at work helping you out with things. This next week whether by choice or force I am having my second child. Im still trying to figure out how I had the first. lol It came to me so easily and I absolutly love it and my daughter is amazing. I feel more than ever that my life is going to change. With my daughter it was like getting a new best friend that goes everywhere with you. Will it be like that with my son? Thats what brings me to this quote, just like my one from last week everything happens for a reason. So someone thinks I can handle 2 kids and this crazy life of mine so I should have enough faith in myself to not worry.

My favorite is the jungle green tree of life.

I like your other work too.

The tree of life has significant meaning in my religion and it is a sign of new beginnings, learning and a reminder to live everyday doing good deeds.
