Beginning…

I’ve been inspired to begin a blog. Well, I did have one for a short time while attending Regent University but this one will be different. For one thing, there probably won’t be any school references in it! This one will be more about ME and my struggles; both constant and changing. It will be about triumphs~however small, however huge.
As Joyce Meyer, my best friend who just doesn’t know it, often says, “I’m not where I need to be but thank God I’m not where I used to be!”. A huge Amen to that. Sometimes I really struggle with not being the wife, mom, friend and person I feel like I should be 100% of the time but then I look back and see that I really have come a long way. I’m a “work in progress”.
But today isn’t appropriate for a struggle entry. Today, I’m thankful. Thankful that it’s 2010 and I’ve been married for over 25 years despite the obstacles. Thankful that my daughter has found happiness with a man who loves her. Thankful she’s a college student with a promising future in education. SO thankful she’s back in my life after an absence while we worked out our issues. I’m thankful for my son who made the Dean’s List last semester at FSU and still texts or calls his mom every day just to check in because he knows I need that communication for my sanity.
My gratitude is overwhelming for so many things that I’ve been blessed with…so, again, if anyone cares to follow me, I really can’t tell you where this is going to go but I do know it will be a journey. There will be times when I will ask for prayer, times when I will celebrate and times when I need to be reminded that I can stop wallowing in self pity. No man is an island and we all need community! Welcome, you are part of mine….

I'd Love to Hear Your Thoughts....
