Blog Commenting Challenge: Day 1



I am linking up to Jennas Journey today for a Blog Commenting Challenge, in fact it's a week long challenge to get to know fellow bloggers.

If you haven't visited my blog before, then hi! I'm Carla! I am married to a great guy named Phillip and I have been blessed with two wonderful children, Jonah and Courtney. I live in the Bluegrass state, the south central part of Kentucky to be exact. I'm a transplant from Florida. We have two loving dogs. Penelope is our beagle, who we rescued from the pound 7 years ago and then there is Rascal our wanna a be a human, that we paid a $5.00 dollars for. He is an oopsie doggie, part Maltese, Pomeranian and Yorkie.

I was a stay at home mom for several years, homeschool mom for 5 years and now I am a Mortgage Underwriter, working six hours a day getting off in time to see my kids get home from school. So I love what I do even though it is not what I went to school for, which was radiology technology.

My husband and I got married in September of 1993. The same year that I was diagnosed with endometriosis and was told that I would probably never have kids. In 1995 with one year left to go in school, my husband looked at me one afternoon and told me I was pregnant. I sorta laughed at him. Being in the middle of finals I was STRESSED out enough but he insisted that I take a pregnancy test. Now let me just say that just a month early my doctor had went over the whole spill of the chances of me ever getting pregnant where very slim. I gave in to my husband’s request and took a pregnancy test and my husband was RIGHT!!! God had blessed us with a pregnancy, unplanned but it was definitely God’s timing.

26 months after we were blessed with a healthy bouncing baby boy, God blessed us again on his own time, with our precious sweet loving Courtney. I love having them just two years apart. They have always gotten along so well together. It is such a joy to watch them play and interact with one another even in their teen years. God definitely has a blessed me!

Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
Isaiah 40:31

Blessings to all~
