I have THE BEST!!!!

I just have to let everyone know.... I HAVE THE BEST PEOPLE IN MY LIFE!!!!!
I have been repeating through my pregnancy "God has really humbled me through my pregnancy".
I have always been one that has had to have control, know what's going on, be on top, always be the "do'er" and yet still didn't feel 'accepted' (I guess would be the word) enough.
I know it's not our works, but my flesh has always told me that it is.
Well, with all the people that have stepped up in my life, I have been humbled to a point where I have realized that I don't have to be all that to be accepted and open to what people want to do for me.
~When I found out I was pregnant I didn't know what I was going to do in regards to supplying for the baby. It really overwhelmed me. Well, Jose and I were talking the other night and have been SO blessed with people just giving me clothes for Delayna. This girl will have so many clothes to last her, I may never have to buy her a single outfit! I even had a friend mail me a box of clothes from South Carolina!
~Noe & Monica (Jose's boss, who also happen to be awesome blessings in our life!) have overly blessed us in so many ways! Monica has bought Delayna so many outfits it's awesome! She brought a few over a couple of different times then last Tuesday when we were at Bible Study, she was telling me about an outfit that she bought someone and Noe told her,,,"Give It To Her." Monica got so excited and handed me the bag and commented, "I've been waiting for him to tell me to give it to you." It was an adorable brown jumper with flowers and shoes to match! Lovin the shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Squeeeeeeeeeeee!
Then last Wednesday while Jose was at prayer night at the church, he walked out to the truck and there was a bag from K-Mart and a brand new bouncer sitting on the hood. He came home and walked in the house with it. I said, "what did you do?" He replied, "went and got something." Then chuckled and told me the real story. I sat there just bawling my eyes out! I couldn't believe that someone would go out of their way to bless in such an awesome way. Then to know that God is SO good! Just the night before at bible study, the girls were telling me that I need a bouncer or swing to put the baby into to help soothe her. Well financially we can't go out and do that, but God blessed us. Come to find out it was Noe & Monica! I was just beside myself that they have done so much. I talked to Noe Thursday night at church and he just kept repeating, "Melissa, know that God WILL provide." I know it, but to hear it is just so much more.
~One of my besties came over to visit with me yesterday. Jessica came over and kept Dom company while he showed her his LeapFrog movie. Then was holding Delayna and comforting her while I got some stuff done in the kitchen. She is the sweatest!!! After a while, I had to go get the kids from school and I left the kids with my mom and Jess while I ran out. When I got home, my 2 loads of laundry I was doing was folded for me!!!! Ack! She is the bestest!!!!
She's also going full force for Delayna's baby shower this Saturday. She has really stepped up and helped my mom alot. Another great blessing in my life!
~My sweet cousin Lourdes has stepped up to do my baby shower. In the begining she called me and asked me if I was going to have one. I commented, "No, I don't think so. I'm sure my family is sick of giving me baby showers." Lourdes really jumped on me for thinking like that and helped me to see that once again, I am loved! So, she stepped up and is going fanatic with this baby shower! She has been calling me at least once a week to follow up with stuff. She told me the other day that she would be calling me everyday until the shower...LOL. *Some background to why that's special...Lourdes & I were close as kids, but as we got older, we went our own ways. We have always loved each other, but haven't been as close. This is bringing us closer, just taking the time to reach out to each other as adults.*
~My Grandma Roof. Just because I love her! She has called me a few times to ask if 2 of her close friends would be welcomed to come to the shower with her. I have meet both of them and they are really sweet ladies. My Grandma was the first one there at the hospital after I had Delayna, she was the first one to hold her & changer her diaper. I can call my grandma at anytime and tell her my woes and she always has a good word for me. I just love my grandma and thank God for letting her be my Grandma!!!
~My mommy. Even though she is a pain in my hiney sometimes, she is a good mommy! She tries her hardest and is really getting better. I must say that this was the first pregnancy and birth of my baby that she has been enjoyable. We have been on one hell of a rocky road together, but the Lord has placed where we are and things continue to improve.

I just thank God for all the blessings that he has poured out upon my family & I. I am beside myself and like Jose says: "I don't have enough words to thank Him."

Well I do have to say that being at your house was a stress relief for me. I love loving on your babies and you! Glad that folding was a blessing to you. I really admire the relationship that you have with your whole family. Your my inspiration!
