Fred,Aaron, Jordan, Pastor Rick, Mr. Reed, Mr Rose, Libby, Chris, Adam, Steve, and emily thank you guys soooooooooooooooooo much you dont know how much you helped!! And i have to say a special thank you to my dad for taking my nasty bathroom and giving mr a wonderful new tub and fixing all the plumbing issues that Kept comming up.. he put in many long hours getting it done and doing it the best way possible!! YOU ROCK:) and to Leah and Patrick Rose....... you guys are amazing. Leah i dont know what i would do without you during all this! You have been the best friend a girl could ask for. You put in more hours than me making the house look great! Everytime i was at the house you were next to me slaving away and doing anything i needed you too. You have no idea how much that means to me. if it wasnt for you i would have had a breakdown at day 2!!!! Thank you for being there and for everything you did:) And i know we both are brain damaged from all the paint and cleaning supply fumes but at least we had a good time:) And pat thank you for helping shay with the bathroom floors and all that nasty work!!! We are truly blessed to have all of you in our lives and as soon as we get everything done its PARTY TIME!!!!! we love you and thanks again!!...ps if i forgot you im sooooo sorry(its the brain damage) and thank you:)
Tonight is our last night at the condo.... i have mixed emotions at the moment:) Most of me is very happy to be moving in to our new home and out of building life but i have to say the other small part is sad. This is where we can after we were married....this is where we had our first big fight, first christmas and thanksgiving, it was our first "home" together. so im a little sad to be leaving:( and now we have yard work and taxes and trash and when things break WE have to fix it!!!!!!! This month has been amazing and crazy and tomarrow it will finally all be worth it! We will spend our first night in our house and i know we will love it. After three weeks of hard work and a few tears the house is ready (enough) for us to move! we went over tonight to get things ready to move in and i realized how much i love this house...no bathroom and all:) i was putting away dishes and thinking abuot everything that will happen in this house.....we will have fixed our first bathroom (or two) together....we will bring our babies home to this house...we will have a dog(PLEASE SHAY) and have tonsof bible studies and parties with our family and friends. I cant wait to see what God has instore for us and our new home:)

The hoildays have been wounderfull this year filled with family and great friends. Christmas was funny tring to teach grandma how to play the wii and playing a fun game of family fude...when the question was what profession make the most tips ... Grandma yelled "PROSTITUTES" and we will never let her forget it! On New Years eve Patrick insisted we "pet the stupid cat" and Aly we wont even go there!! I love you guys and am so happy to call you my friends. This year was great and i think 2008 will be even better:)

I know i know i havent bloged in over two months!!!! i have been crazy busy with work, school, my wifely duties, being on crutches,getting ready for the holidays and buying our first home:) anyway im back and ready to catch up!! Life in the Jariwala home has been crazy... after much drama and many tears we have Finally found our home! Its been a long and interesting process but as of january 14th (or before) we will be home owners!!! I couldnt be more excited and terrified at the same time. This is the house i have always wanted it has everything i asked for and more and it is beautiful:) So now starts the obsessive cleaning, painting, figuring out where to put things, buying all the crap we still need and ripping up of some nasty carpet!! It will be stressful but wonderful....and you all will be getting frantic phone calls to come help(seriously). Life is good. i was sitting here tonight thinking of how amazingly blessed my life is and how God has given me everything i have ever wanted. I stand amazed at how beautiful He makes life. Whenever i get worried or stressed i just think of where i have come from and what my life is now and how God can take ANY situation and make it something amazing. Today has been one of those days where you just wake up in awe of Jesus and everything he has done and is doing in your life hits you at once and its a little overwhelming. I love those days:) We should have that day everyday but sometimes with the maddness around i let that feeling get away from me a little and then my days are not as joyful or warm..... I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas ! Well this is getting long so im done:) ...be back in a few months....just kidding

For all of you who dont already know Shay Jariwala is the most amazing man alive! ok sorry but this is about to get a little mushy:) I was just thinking about how thankful i am that God has blessed me with such a wounderful man to be married to. I am so glad that God has a plan for our lives and that as long as we put him first He will show us the right way to go. I was thinking about where My life was a little over a year ago, I was not in Gods will thats for sure! So many times I made choices based on what I felt or what I wanted, not even thinking about what God wanted for my future. I was selfish and stupid! Thankfully God's plan is always bigger and better than mine could ever be. It took awhile but finally the light in my hollow head went off and now I know I am living in Gods will. I couldnt be happier with everything the Lord has blessed me with, an amazing husband who makes me feel like a queen, a great job(stressful but great) a wounderful church family, and the best friends and family a girl could ask for. All i had to do was turn to Him and place my life in His hands and in a matter of days my life and heart were changed for the better:) You cant understand grace and love until you experience it from Jesus its AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL and NEVER ENDING. God has givin me a passion to share his love and mercy with young women who were in the same confusing place in thier lives as i was a year and a half ago. When i see people making the same mistakes i made i want to grab them and scream........STOPPPPPPPPP....turn to JESSSSSUSSSS and it will better:) ok well anyway i have to go to class just wanted to shay Jesus is the man and i love you shay:) Thanks for loving me when im unlovable and being the bestest husband in the whole world! sorry this was all over the place!
