I’m a very positive person. I trust my gut on many things and I’m feeling so positive that things are about to get crazy in the BEST way. I just have a really good feeling about this week. It’s hard feeling SO positive, honestly. I wrestle with the power of positive thinking. I can feel so good about something, but does that mean it will always happen? Not necessarily. So many people are praying for us right now and I know 100% that Adam will only get this job if it’s the right path for him to take. I thought the hardest part was up until this point, but it seems this week is the hardest so far. It’s not easy waiting, but we’re leaning on God right now. We know and trust that He loves us SO much. He’s taking such good care of us and even blessed us with our puppy this weekend.
I was reminded of this last night, when we headed to Target, a bit out of the blue, when we realized we needed to pick up a few things. I suggested that we didn’t need to go to Target, but we agreed that saving a few dollars on toilet paper was worth the slightly longer trip to Target. It made our day just to be able to walk down the dog aisle and think of all the toys we’ll be able to get our pup. To back this story up a bit, Adam suggested the name “Nola” because we saw the name somewhere and I remember him telling me that he liked the name and I agreed. We couldn’t remember who had the name or where it came from, but both remember that moment. Now back to our trip to Target. We grabbed what we needed and headed to one of the few check out lines opened. A lovely woman was standing at the cash register. She was beautiful with a warm, friendly smile and demeanor. Honestly, one of the nicest cashiers I’ve ever encountered. My eyes widened a bit as we waited in line. Turning to my husband, I said quietly under my breath, “I know where the name came from” and nudged my head in her direction. On the friendly cashiers name tag was the name “Nola”. She had checked us out once before, and after that is when Adam mentioned the name. It’s funny how it just came full circle. To me it was a reminder from God that He is looking out for us and writing our story better than we ever could and no matter how this week goes, that’s something I can trust.
She’s so precious.
