Just a quick update: My hubby (for various reasons) is on what we are calling his "mini-retirement". I have been so very grateful for our stockpile of food and health & beauty during this time as we are NOT on any form of government assistance. I love that our bills are paid, our tummies are full, and we are having some extra-special Daddy time during this season of our lives. It is likely that this mini-retirement will not last very long, so we are appreciating it and each other while it lasts.
God is good, all the time.
And, my stockpile ROCKS! :)
