I can't believe that we are slowly fulfilling our dreams. I am happy and fortunate to have a husband that shares my values and aspirations. We both wanted to live the American dream like everybody else. I know that with our decision to own a house is a big step toward living that dream. This is something that I have only in dreams way back in my home country. I think I am a living testament to everyone who believe in their dreams and working with the grace of God to reach that dream.

This guest post from Lenny Mcknight.
Utilities are the kind of thing you can easily forget when you’ve moving, especially since there’s so much other stuff going on. It’s easy to let them slip by when you’re dealing with movers or a moving van, packing up all of your stuff or in my case, moving halfway across the country from your family. That’s why when I got to California, I realized that I never called ahead to set up all my utilities. Whoops! What an undertaking that turned out to be…it took nearly a week to get our power up and running. It’s a good thing the weather there is mild! I also forgot to look into security systems at http://securityCHOICE.com until we got there but thankfully, that didn’t take too long. I feel better now that everything’s squared away but next time I move, I’m definitely going to plan ahead better! Maybe I’ll even get a checklist or something to make sure I’ve got everything under control…that sure would have been helpful about six months ago when I moved out here!
The birthday is still in September but time flies so fast so I better plan early. I am also thinking of gourmet birthday gift ideas for him. The house is the biggest gift ever for him and to our family but I want to look for any gift ideas that he deserve. He is a very good provider for us, a good husband and father and he deserve to get the best on his special day. I hope I can have one soon so I can save money for it.

But if ever I can find another job that will suit my schedule before I finish my program, I may go for it. I need to help out the family as well as need to start working building our finances. This is not only for myself but for the whole family. The kids are growing as well as their needs. There are so much to prepare in order for them to have a good life when they are older. Right now, I can't wait to start our life in our new place and building our future together as a family.
I believe it is still a blessing in disguise though because we were able to find another house that we think suits our family and we will be able to move this month. Our lease will end at the end of this month and we don't want to do the month-to-month rent. With God's grace, we were told that we may be able to close on the week of the 20th and by the end of this month we can clear out from our apartment. God is really good that despite what happened, He still provided for us. I can't wait to and nervous for the new life that we are going to partake as a family. This will be a meaningful moment and the very big step for our future.
