{ you are almost there }

Gulp. 25 days from today, will find us living here.
I am really not sure that I think that is humanly possible. But he kisses my forehead and tells me to trust him and not to worry about a thing. It would take me pages and pages to tell you how proud I am of him and all he has accomplished in the last 3 months. For now I will tell you my admiration + respect for him has grown in leaps and bounds as I have watched this great man, take this great big project house we bought, and turn it into a beautiful home.
David, to you see you juggle this crazy life that we call ours...to watch you bravely step outside the comfort zone. Okay, so maybe blasted out would be more accurately describe it. To see you rise to the challenge, every day.
And while it has been far from easy, while it's been on many levels, the most challenging year we have faced together, I only have tears to tell you how thankful I am for all that you do, and for the tender way you have not let my/our hearts + needs be replaced by your massive to-do list.
As you, I , as we, all four of us together... learn, stretch and grow.
And those shoulders of yours, well they only get broader.
I know we've still got a long way to go but I had to stop and thank you today.
For today. And for every day you have loved us, for every day you will love us, loved us so well.
And babes, thanks to you, and the perfect grace of God,
I think we are going to come out shining.

So amazing and sweet Chelle. He (and you!) have done such an spectacular job handling the challenges that you have faced in this past year. You guys are an inspiration daily.

This blows my mind. You have been a shining example to me already. Maybe from afar, but a shining example all the same. And one I am grateful for. I am praying every little detail will go back to that same scripture I felt when praying for you before. And that each detail- paint colours, wallpapers patterns, furniture - all of it will sing of His love and faithfulness to you just like David's has. I will be praying...

I'm so thankful to the Lord that HE blessed David with a faithful, encouraging, loving, supportive wife. It's because he has you as his own personal cheer leader that he can do so much! I love you all.....

Chelle, I can't wait to see your wonderful new home! I got your etsy convo - so not a problem! I have done it myself. I wasn't even worried.
And I just have to say, I am so so happy for my sweet Andi to have such a perfect friend as a neighbor. I remember her praying for good friends, a long time ago while she was still here. I think God answered her well. :)

The effects are gradual and the result will vary for each user. However, further review show that most users experience benefits within the first week. In the first month you can expect erections that stay longer than usual and your penile may even start to become wider. penis enlargement pills - http://www.cucumaerot.com
