fabulous news

This weekend the hubby and I got some fabulous news. 
As of this past Saturday, Beau officially  has a great new job for this next year.
So while I'm finishing up my last year of college, Beau has a wonderful job.
And best of all, he got his first pick as well. 

It's funny but this is our first big step as a married couple. 
We're so used to living off of a student worker salary, it's weird that we're actually going to be getting legitimate paychecks. I feel very blessed though. 
There are of course days when I complain about our tiny tiny studio. I complain about how I have to use a cup to roll out my pizza dough because I can't justify buying a real rolling pin.  I complain about having to use a overly-crowded, shared laundry room instead of having our own machines.  I complain about having such busy, chaotic weeks.

But really, when it comes down to is, I'm very blessed. I'm truly so SO blessed. 
I have a terrific husband that is always there for me. We are both healthy people. Though we make hardly any money, we've never had financial problems.  We both have received/are receiving great educations that will both bless us and our future family.  I have no idea what the future has in store for us, but I couldn't be more happy to find out. I'm grateful for my present though. I spend too much of my time thinking about the future and often forget to really take notice of the countless blessings that I presently have.

So for now, I'm grateful that I'm able to attend such a wonderful school. I'm grateful that my husband is able to support the two of us.  I'm grateful that we have made so many wonderful friends here.  I'm grateful that Hawaii feels more and more like home everyday.  And I'm grateful that I married my best friend.

Congratulations to Beau!! What fantastic news!

I know I am constantly worrying/thinking about the future instead of being thankful for the present. I am trying to live more in the present, but that's always much easier said than done! :)
