This Past Week…

This past week has been hard for me, and this is part of the reason I haven’t written much in my blog this week. Several days before Christmas we had gotten news that my grandfather on my dad’s side, had two months to live. Two nights ago we found out he only had a few days to maybe a few weeks left, because he had gotten worse. I have not seen my grandfather in 5 years, because he lives in new Hampshire, and I went to college in Florida, and before I could go back, my family moved to Florida as well.

My aunt and uncle who still live in New Hampshire are already making funeral arrangements for my grandfather and they told me they are trying to arrange for a funeral with full military honors since my grandpa proudly served with the 1st Marine Division in Guadacanal and Peleliu. I am really proud and hope everything works out for this to happen.

The problem is, we do not have the money to go up to New Hampshire, when my grandfather does pass away. It has been something I have been thinking about over for the past few days, and praying about. After some tears, I know that no matter what it will be ok, and I am taking it one day at a time.

We also started a class by Dave Ramsey at church called Financial Peace University. I think this is going to be really good for us, and help us save money, and learn how to handle our finances. It is perfect to be getting this done before the baby comes as well. Money has been an issue for awhile now that has bothered me. I feel at times my husband and I are going different directions, and I think this class will helps us get focused.

So as the week started bad and has been stressful, it has ended on this good note, that there is hope, and I am looking forward to the good things God will do.
