Its Been A While!!!

It has been a while since I have posted, my surgery went very well and I am pretty much recovered at this point. Things have seemed to settle down for the moment, but knock on wood, we shall see. I have done alot of growing here lately. I turned 41 on September 29th and have decided that the time is now to change both my weight and some of my outlook.

God has certianly worked to change so many things about me and in my life, and it is a breath of fresh air. We have become more involved in the church and I believe that God has both a plan for me, and for this family. I thank him everyday for the things that he blesses me with. I take nothing, nothing at all for granted. I truly am blessed beyond anything that I have ever ever known before in my life.

I find strength in places I have never know that I had it. I am optomistic that the peace and calm that I am feeling, is a good thing right now.

Thats all for now......

Wow what a day today was, up at 5:30 and off to the Susan G Komen race for the cure. This is a day that I remember that at 55 cancer took my mother away from me and 6 granbabies. It was also a day to celebrate her life. You see being her first born I am in danger of getting breast cancer myself. This is one of the things that scares the life out of me.
I pray everyday that I will be around for a long time for my kiddos. It was a great day and i took lots of pics to remember it. As I was walking I was thinking of the Janet Jackson song. "there are times when I look above and beyond, there are time when I feel your love around me...I'll never forget" "everywhere i go, every smile i see, i know you are there, smilin back at me, dancin in moonlight, I know you are free, cuz I can see your smile shinin down on me.

Surgery at 7:30am it may be a couple of days. But today was a good day, the smiles of my kids, DH and my friends that I was able to share today with............well, there are no words to express my joy.

After the race I went to church, and it was a very powerful message. It really hit home for what has been going on in my life lately. The verse was 1st Corinthinans 15:10. "But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect."

until after the surgery and my hospital stay....

Much love to all

Dear God

First I would like to thank you for each and every blessing that you have given me. I take nothing for granted ever, and I pray that you give me the strength once again that I have been continually praying for from you. I pray that you continue to heal the parts of my body that you know so desperately need healing. I ask you to forgive me in those areas that you know that I need forgiveness. I am not perfect in any way, nor have I ever claimed to be. I am full of flaws, but i am working on myself every single day.
Please give me the strength to be a better mother and wife, and to guide my children in the right direction and teach them all the good things that they need to know.
Thank you for this beautiful sunny day, and thank you for listening to me.
