It's been a while.....
I find it frustrating that living life
makes it too busy to blog about it! [hehehe, smile]
However I am repenting my ways and will be back, ...just not until the beginning of January. I have something I get to do, something that involves my daughter and my little sister, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity. It will keep me away, yet if I have the time or chance I will check in.
Thank you all so much for watching over me.

I can think of so many many more as well.
I have so many people here
who have truly watched over me.
I have good thoughts and vibes toward you,
and include you in my prayers.
Yes, I do.
so, for now....I thank you all
And I ask that you take this award
and pass it along to your angels.
...a Christmas Card Gift of Gratitude!
is someone who has taught me that
SURVIVORS CAN THRIVE.
Thank you for your friendship.
Thank you for your example.
Thank you for your cheer!
The past few weeks have been full of painting, cleaning, new carpet, remodeling, FINALS for me, and Christmas preparation....and as I took my first bubble bath in the tub
I lay there with gratitude,
my life....is perfect.....for me.
My trials are perfect,
my pains are perfect,
my past is perfect,
my present is perfect.
And while none of these things have any element of perfection..
...they fit me just right.
They may not be the size I wish they were,
....who wouldn't want to be a PERFECT 2..
...however, they are just right for me,
cozy, pleasant, fitting.
Yet, I have faith that my trials are perfect for me.
...that I will grow into them.
...that I will someday see
the beauty in them.
...that I will be able to do
what I am meant to with them.
I have hope, and Peace,
I feel to say that I am content,
I know that the pain will rear its uglyness from time to time, but I have YOU all now.
I have you to walk with me,
and to remind me that
I have someone else
who walks with me....
He loves me
and He loves you.
He said He would never leave us.
I believe He never has.
I know He lives.
I know He knows our pains.
He can not remove our trials from us,
but He has made us equal to them,
and He can strengthen
and comfort us in them.
At this time of year may you have JOY.
comes from remembering JESUS first,
see here what I mean:
Thank you for being those OTHERS
who care enough to be ANGELS to watch over,
....and to direct,
those of us who ache
and struggle and fall...to the helps that we need.
Thank you all for being the BEST YOU that you can be.
Thank you for being brave enough
to share your stories of pain
and trial and struggle,
and for being honest in sharing them.
You are all amazing people.
May you all be CONTENT!
