I was feeling like I needed a new start sort of. I don't feel like the same person as last week. I am not going to blindly trust people. I am not going to always assume people have my best interst at heart. They do not.
With that said, I am thinking I am so blessed to have so many friends. I have been in tears today from all of the sweet messages (and surprises) I have received. I am totally overwhelmed by it. I will always be there for everyone who has been there for me. Always.
The snow has been so pretty. It reminds me of God's grace and how his pure love covers us. He is constantly teaching me lessons. I don't always like them but I always come out a stronger person.
Always look for the lesson....sometimes, we have to look past the hurt but it is there.
I just had someone whom used to be a friend insult my integrity. I don't know if I have ever had that happen before. So, in thinking about it, I want everyone to know. I am real. I feel my path is to encourage others and help women, I have a few gifts that make this a bit easier for me, so I use them. IF I have ever given the impression that I think I am perfect, it is NOT true, if I ever made anyone think I don't get frustrated, hurt, angry, lonely and depressed, I am sorry. I have all of those feelings, I don't always make the right choices but I learn from my mistakes.
Just know, I write, I have a vision, I want to help...but I am just like you are and not perfect in any way.
written a few years ago....but I am reposting because it is how I feel.
Tuesday, 2008 logic I still try to figure things out things that don't seem to have a logical answer things that makes some feel helpless like a leaf being carried by a current what can one grasp what is real enough to grab hold and hang on I don't know
Mornings can be hectic at our house. As I was rushing around getting everything together, Cara kept saying "Mommy, Mommy" in an excited voice....I turned around in a hurry and said "what Cara", she said "look, a heart". We had left a clothes hanger by the microwave while everyone was getting ready. Cara saw a heart in the "flection"...... She was so excited with a big smile on her face. It made my day! I'm glad I took the time to look instead of rushing her out the door.
Praying for Haiti (my heart breaks for the people of Haiti)

Learning and listening- lifelong process, learning to listen without doubting...
I am thanking God for his gifts to me and my family.
Excited to see my friend Leigh Ann's hospital unit on TLC tonight at 8 pm. She is a nurse in the burn unit. She is an angel. :)
Art by Emma and Cara (Ellie is back in school, Em and Cara are still on break because of year round school). Emma painted the first pic, Cara colored the second pic and Emma sketched the 3rd. I am proud of them!
I am a mom of 3 girls and a wife to Kyle! I want to help others learn about themselves by sharing myself and my life. I would love to encourage others, to help them be creative and use the gifts God has given them. If I can do this, I am happy!

Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past stop planning the future stop trying to figure out precisely how we feel stop deciding with our mind what we want out heart to feel sometimes we have to go with whatever happens happens
