I wasn't sure I was ever going to use this blog again, but tonight I was reading it and it brought back some great memories of raising my kids. It was also fun to read about my personal and spiritual growth, especially during a time in my life when some not-good things were happening to me. I realize how strong I was then and how the Lord was blessing and sustaining me.

So much has happened since my last entry. Life is good, actually better in many, many ways.  Funny how something that seems so horrible can become a blessing and can wake you up. Reminds me of the country/western song "Thank God for unanswered prayers." Now, years later... I am a stronger, wiser, and happier woman. I am still going to school and will graduate in May. I have an internship that I love- working in Social Work, specifically the field of mental health.  It is hard to believe that I will have my Masters in approximately 18 months and can begin supervision to be a counselor.

My kids have grown so much and they are still the most important part of my life.  They are great kids, so resilient and fun to be with!  My parents and siblings have been such a blessing to us. They have stepped in to help me whenever I have asked for it, their love and support does not go unnoticed. I am also grateful for my friends. God has put so many strong and loving women in my life to support and strengthen me when I need the extra encouragement. Life is good!
