i can't believe it

"One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can't utter."
James Earl Jones 
To say "thank you " just doesn't seem enough. For you see, my heart is dancing with joy right now. Just as I was wrapping up for the evening, getting everything ready to return to work tomorrow after a great week at home, I checked my email and found a message there that I in no way expected to get. 

It read:

Congrats! You won a spot in Ali's class!

 What?????!?!? Are you kidding me? 

Just the other day I entered a generous giveaway on Ordinary Courage to win a spot in Ali Edward's yesterday + today class. 

If you read my blog regularly, you will probably understand why this is so incredible to me right now. If you don't and would like to know, you can check it out here.  

 Long story short, I wanted to sign up, but it just didn't fit in our budget right now. With a heavy heart I passed on the opportunity. 

But now. Here I am, in the class. 

Just more proof that God knows our hearts so well. 

And I am sure my mom had something to do with it too ;-) 

 I can't thank you enough, Brene!  Words can't express how much this means to me. 

I can't wait to get started!
