I can do all things through him who strengthens me!!! Philippians 4:13



So here I am. Starting a Blog. I don't really know where to start. So I'm going to just start............. I suppose this is symbolic for my life right now. I'm starting on a new journey based on faith and hope. After almost 11 years of marriage to John I'm now single or widowed. Widowed sounds so "senior" doesn't it? But yet it is what I am. I'm learning how to do everything as a "single" parent again. I love Philippians 4:13 - I can do everything through him who strengthens me. I wear a ring that says this and I have to often look at it and remind myself of Gods promise to me. What a comfort this is. I have great kids that I love with all my heart - they each have such unique gifts. I am so blessed with family and friends who love me and I'm so thankful God has placed every specific person in my life for a reason! I'm blessed. That is where I will leave my first post. I'm blessed.
