King of the pizza...
“You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six.”
...and I had all four tonight in honor of a HUGE accomplishment from Ben!! Yes, it was a weakness after working out and having a great day of eating healthy! So why the celebration?? Ben ate 2 whole pieces of pepperoni pizza and largely cut peaches for lunch today!! This is only the second time that he has eaten real food and both times he has done great! Ben went to town on it right away and his speech therapist had to make sure that he didn't get to big of bites in that mouth of his! We asked him if the pizza was better then mashed potatoes and he nodded his head yes. When we then went on to ask him if it was better than the apple sauce and ice cream he had been getting he shrugged his shoulders! Ok, so I even think ice cream is better then pizza!
That is why I celebrated with my own pizza party tonight...all while watching the Biggest Loser with dim light...that way I really couldn't notice how many pieces were missing from the box!
God has a way of showing us that He is still there and watching out for us...I needed that today and this is how He did it:
~Read in a book about His redeeming nature
~Was told by the Fisher House (house I am in) staff lady that she needed to talk to me (I thought I was in trouble) and she gave me gift cards to Target that had been given to the house.
~Ben ate the pizza and peaches
~Good chat with my mom
~Ben mastering the Wii with his oceans game and playing it forever!
~A wonderful snuggle time with my man
~An overall blessed day and feeling the presence of Jesus
Thank you Jesus for blessings us and always being with us!
