One of the hardest things I have gone through . . . .

After one of the hardest weeks of my life I am able to still feel Gods love for me. Even though my sweet friend has gone on to her eternal home, she showed me that I could truly love someone other than my own family so deeply. She left me with what now feels like an extended family and a friend who now feels more like a sister. After what would be officially my first day of being unemployed , I have been called and offered 3 jobs already. Really wanting to take about a 3 week break but so I am feeling so grateful at this moment with the many ways my sweet Adell has blessed my life the last four years and especially this last week as I witnessed many miracles take place and she made the transition to her eternal home to be with her sweet husband and family that has gone before. Even though I miss her more than words can say, I am so grateful for everything she brought into my life, because of her I am changed for the better and my heart will never be the same.

There Are Angels Among Us

Spending what is most likely the last night caring for my sweet friend here on this earth  you know they say you grow to love those you serve  and I have grown to love her soooo much . It has been a roller coaster of emotions these last 7 days. She is such a strong woman and she has slept right here for 7 days as everyone came to accept the fact that it is time for her go with her loved ones on the other side. This entire experience has been such a blessing and yet it has been so difficult. Not sure how much longer my sweet friend will hang on, but I know our time is short.....

We love Golf

So my cute friend Adell used to be a pretty top-notch golfer in her day. She 's Golf. It's too cold and too crazy for her to get out to the open, so we have the best seat watching it right here on TV. #shelovestiger#ilovephil #neitherofthemmadethecut #tobadfortiger#sosadforphil but she is okay she just loves the excitement of the game. #onceagolferalwaysagolfer #mydadwouldbeproudofme #pga #wastemanagementopen

Counting My Blessings

Feeling really blessed. I love that right now in my life I have the opportunity to do things that I love and that I am passionate about. I may not be rich and get a big paycheck but I get to do things that hopefully make a difference in peoples lives. I love working with fabulous people sharing my passion for Documenting Your Life and sharing your families stories and supporting local retailers with the best products on the market created by the best manufactures in the industry to help people document their story and engage in a craft they love. I love sharing my love for Documenting your life with MemoryMixer and giving people that avenue to tell their story and fill their creative outlet just by sitting in front of their computer. I love being back in the foster care arena and hopefully I can help make a difference in the lives of a few children and bring an awareness to families that everyone can make a difference in the lives of children and families. And I love caring for my sweet friend Adell a couple days a week as she goes through her life journey and the challenges it brings along with it. And most of all I am grateful for the blessing of being a mom and grandma, by far the greatest joy I will ever have. I feel blessed to have the gospel in my life and the peace it brings into my life every hour of every day. This is one of my favorite songs that I sing with my sweet friend Adell on the days that I spend with her. When we stop and count the many blessings in our lives we will find we truly are blessed in far greater ways than a paycheck can ever provide.
