Perfect Weekend

It's been an adventurous weekend. Here is a breakdown of what happened.
Randy dropped his Iphone 4S and the glass broke.
Friday night after dinner out and a little time at the park we were getting ready to leave and the back window in the car broke leading to a costly replacement.
Randy's crucifix necklace that I gave him for his birthday 8 years ago broke. Sad day.
We had a date night.  It wasn't anything extravagant but it was much needed and awesome.
Sunday- After a movie with my parents, they took Aubriella home and the rest of the family went to Dillons.  At the check out a woman said to us.  You are so lucky you have one of each.  I was saddened by her comment not for me but for her.  I don't know if she has children but I know that I am not striving for the "perfect" family in America's eyes.  One of each gender.  I am striving for the perfect family in God's eyes and if that meant only 2 children or 13 children as long as we are striving our best on a daily basis to reach our ultimate goal of Heaven.

The gem that actually made up for the entire weekend was a moment in church.  Church with 3 little one's can always be a challenge.  While the children weren't particularly difficult during mass we did have a few tiny struggles.  An older woman sitting behind us reached out to us after mass and told us that we have a beautiful family and wanted to congratulate us for bringing them to church because that is how they learn.  I almost could have cried right there at that moment.  This stranger who doesn't know us but saw our little family and how were striving for perfection.
I will take this with me all week and hopefully into next Sunday.

So a rough weekend ended on a good note. I guess that's what happens when you sit back and let God take the wheel.  He always provides!
