Each year I use an accordion style cardboard file box to keep my receipts and papers in…and then sometime during the first couple of months of the next year, I go through those and shred what I don’t need anymore. I finally got a cross cut shredder a couple of years ago and I may need another one after all that I shredded the other night. lol
I did two years worth and let me tell you…no wonder we are losing so many trees…sheesh…The file box is bulging open by year’s end, so I shred what I no longer need to make room. I wish I could just keep each file box, but I have no where to put it!
In this little bitty house that I live in, there is no room for anything! When I got through looking through the endless mound of papers and then shredding everything, I had two years worth of papers all in one file box, with room to spare. It took me several hours.(Can you tell that I am proud of myself! lol lol)
What do yall do with your receipts and stuff ? How long should you keep stuff such as this anyway? I had a bad experience in my first few years of married life… Because I was trusting (and dumb) and didn’t get paid receipts, I ended up paying certain people twice and even three times …Needless to say, I finally wised up and now hate to throw any receipt away. lol
Now you know that I have got to show you our little Wyatt’s latest pictures …
He is growing so fast that I can almost see him growing! lol

Now can’t you just see this child growing?!!
You know, I named my daughter Amanda after a country song…Because in that song it says…“Amanda, light of my life” ….
See, the doctors had told me… after losing two babies to miscarriages and a whole slew of medical problems, that I did not have much chance of ever having anymore children…They basically told me to be satisfied with the one child I did have. Don’t get me wrong…I loved my son…and nearly died having him…but I wanted more children…at least one more.
Well, after ten long years… ten dark years…. during which me (and my sister Dorris) were praying and praying, not giving up; but getting others to pray also…
Our God proved those doctors wrong…and my baby girl was born…alive and healthy…8lbs. and 4 oz. of a miracle…born on my mama’s birthday….and my life was no longer dark.
God gave me the ‘ light of my life’ and now he has made it even brighter….
By adding little Wyatt.
GOD IS GOOD.
I Thank you Heavenly Father for all my many blessings .
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
