With all the crap going on at work lately and dealing with the stresses of trying to sell our house (we all know what the market is like right now...), I haven't been feeling very blessed lately....

Well, God must have known that I needed a good swift kick to remind me that every minute we have on this earth is a gift. And that we need to cherish those moments. My problems, however BIG they may seem to me, are teeny tiny in comparison to what many other people out there are facing.

Thank you, Lord, for allowing me to finally meet Kaytie and Avery in person today. Who knew that dinner at Pizza Hut (coupled with a keen sense of hearing) could make a grown woman (me) cry?!? What beautiful, precious angels.... I know Shyla & Phillip would be so proud as would big sister Haylie!

In 2 days, it will be the 2nd anniversary of when we lost those 3 sweet spirits. As we remember and reflect, let us thank God for every moment and every memory.

God Bless,

WHY do people want to try their hardest to ruin someone else's happiness?

Whether it be happiness in a relationship, a family, a career, etc...

Just WHY????

Let me just say that I feel like a total outsider at work. I love my job and I love that I am asked by our manager and our system director to branch out and help with new technology, special projects, etc. And I am NOT leaving. But I feel like I don't have a single friend in the pharmacy where I work. We've got some back-stabbing, talk about you when you're right around the corner, people where I work.

I have always been an emotional person. I wear my heart on my sleeve. And hard as I try, I have extreme difficulty hiding my feelings. Any advice y'all can offer on "How To Deal" would be much appreciated!

Thanks for reading!

We Never Know....

People have their reasons for the things they do or don't do.

Sometimes they share those reasons with us and sometimes they don't.

As much as I rely on Facebook to keep in touch with family out of town and friends, I found out something this week that I did not know.

On the one hand, it breaks my heart. On the other, I can't even begin to understand what it's been like to walk in those two pairs of shoes for the past 19 plus years.............

I love them both with my whole heart. We've lost touch and reconnected a number of times. But they will always be like a second mom & dad to me.

I wish each of them all the love, happiness, and fulfillment their hearts can hold. After all they've been through, they deserve it.
