A finished project! I bought this file cabinet/school supply cabinet back in the spring and I asked for it to be unfinished so I could have time to decide what color I wanted it...Well, it sat in my work area for a few months, and then one day I moved it up on my work table and stained the inside...After that, it sat for months and months and months and MONTHS! Today I walked by and said "This is the day!".... I need sunlight coming in my bay window, and I need my work table to antique some frames...Not long after I made that declaration, my hand sander died! So I have been hand sanding all day... This is my finished project to live with for now and decide if I need to do anything else to it after the new year....It feels good to get it this far! Finally! :)

I have to use this day to tell how GOD has blessed us....In 2002, I was told I had cancer and I had 6 months to a year to live...That wasn't in God's plan...As soon as I went into remission I asked the doctor if we could have another baby...I always knew he was meant to be...In 2005, I miscarried...I prayed that if I wasn't to have another that God would take that desire away from my heart...But he didn't! I learned through it all that it is in God's time..Not mine...In 2006,  2 1/2 weeks after my 40th birthday, I gave birth to Timothy "Luke"...My first words I whispered to him when they handed him to me were "I have waited so long for you!"....I was at 4 years remission and our family was now complete....His smile and laugh lights up my heart everyday! He is a constant reminder of God's grace and that God gave me my heart's desire! HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sweet 11 year old!!!
