Totally Blessed... That is how I am feeling today.
As I sit here - updating pictures on my blog and thinking about what I want to write.
Life this past year has sure been a roller coaster for me. Ups and downs with my emotions and feeling secure or not. But one thing has been steady and that is Jesus Christ. He is always my rock that we lean on as a family. Without him I could have never made it through.
Then there are my friends. I have come a long way with finding out who my true friends are these past few years. And my heart still over flows with pride when I look around and see who has been tried and true. I hope I can be as good a friend to them when they need it.
And then there is my family. I have lived many years of my life feeling bad because I was so blessed. People had made me feel bad out of jealousy. But life is too short. We all have our problems. I thank Jesus that a good family is not something I take for granted but am completely blessed by. Thank you to my parents, my brothers, my aunts and uncles, cousins, grandma and more.
I am also thankful that when we are going through rough times - God doesn't leave us alone. He doesn't CAUSE others to be going through things with us but I have found in life he draws us to people who need us and when we need them.
When my son was going through Leukemia - I was blessed sadly - with a family to go through it with me. We leaned on each other over the internet. Knowing I was not alone was bitter sweet.
Now with my divorce and challenges of rebuilding my life - God has brought so many woman into my life. It seems like a lot of times they are drawing from my experiences. Asking me for advice. But I have been there. I know the drill. And when I need them to listen - they are there too. Leaning on each other daily - almost hourly. So many women. So sad. But there is strength that we have had together. I am thankful that God draws us to those who understand.
I am excited about what the new year will bring. Changes have started in my life recently and I am looking forward to seeing what God is about to do. Some have been long awaited. While others I want to put my feet down and stop from coming. But no matter what I know the God has His best in store for me and my kidlets. So I am going to let go and let Him.
Thank you to everyone for being on this journey with me and having a part in my life.
