Things change...

In the blink of an eye...life as you know it...can do a 180.

I like change.

Really I do.

Change is exciting.

I used to move the furniture around while the husband was at work. Re-hang the pictures...AND PAINT...don't even get me started on paint. I LUST paint.

I used to tease the husband that he better "watch out" because if he wasn't on his best behavior...I'd change him too. Maybe a new haircut, new clothes...heck...if he didn't come home from work on time...I'd trade him in for a new model. (the husband has a great sense of humor)

Sometimes life throws changes that you aren't quite prepared for. Sometimes those changes aren't welcome and you have to go with the flow. Dig deep and find your inner strength. Place trust in people, and God, that things will turn out ok.

I have recently been thrown a loop and I have had to find my own
inner strength. I have had to find trust that I didn't realize I had. I am still finding trust as my family journey continues.

I want to say a huge THANK YOU to my blogger/art buddies who have become some of my very best friends. Your strength and your support is unparalled...you know who you are. My neighbors, friends, family...for the food that has been showing up in my refrigerator, all of the offers to shuttle my kids, run my errands...but hey...what happened to cleaning my bathrooms??? To all my customers and stores for their understanding...whoa...you guys are the best.

I will be back soon. Thanks for hanging in there with me and understanding my absence.

xoxo

So sorry to hear of your unhappy tidings. It is amazing the inner strength one can find when needed. I guess that's why it's hidden, so it will be there when we need it. My thoughts are with you.
