So last night I was alone. Alone in my house with only the animals crawling all over me. The kids were all spending the night at friends houses and I was alone. Such a strange thing, everyone was so worried about me being alone. Why? It can be scary to be alone with only your thoughts I suppose. And yet I found it so comforting. It was a time to think about my week, miss John, think about friends new and old, worry about my parents, plan the week ahead, and most importantly - talk with my God. No kids clinging or needing, no TV, no phones ringing (it was 11:00), no place to hurry off to, just me with my heart wide open. I was filled with a sense of peace. Being alone every once in awhile is a good thing - got to catch up with myself (and it may be awhile before it happens again). Hope you all enjoy your alone time!

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.
