UPDATE! I have had a few people ask me ware I go the book for Ty. I wish there were an easier way to respond to people that comment on my blog. Anyway, I figured Id do a little update on it here. I got it through Hallmark. I was going to purchase it online or through eBay but I soon found out that going into a Hallmark to purchase one was about twenty dollars cheaper then purchasing it online. My only suggestion is to call around to see what the Hallmark store has in stock. These books go fast. You can go to hallmark.com and look at the different recordable books that they offer so that you know what you are looking for but like I said don't purchase it online because they are very expensive.
About a week and a half ago I sent Tyrus his birthday gift. I didn't know what to get this sweet boy. I wanted it to be unique and personable. I found these recordable story books and thought it would be the perfect gift. The thought of being able to read him a story from hundreds of miles away made my heart soar. I recorded this video just minutes after I recorded the book. Its not a great video. I look horrible and I am just full of emotion. I was crying happy tears. I miss him so. When I get emotional I play with my bottom lip which is what I did in the video. However; Tyrus has received the book now so I wanted to share with you this very special gift.
Other things on my mind:
Life has NOT been easy for me the past few years. Sometimes I sit and wonder if things will ever even out. My job continues to be difficult and I often wonder if I am cut out for it. Just when I think I am doing a good job, I am advised that my job is on the line again. Ive been on probation for seven months. I just cant figure it out. Is God shaping me or trying to show me areas that need improvement in my life through my job? Its most certainly not for lack of trying. I don't do things half heartedly. I take my job very seriously, but something is lacking. I continue to pray for God to show me my place in life. I long for something in my life to "stick" and just be steady, and I was hoping to make this job my home. Right now, its up in the air. What now God?
My favorite song lyrics:
"I want to thank you now for being patient with me. Oh its so hard to see, when my eyes are on me. I guess Ill have to trust and just believe what you say. Cause your coming again, coming to take me away!"
