Checking In & Catching Up

Quotation-Audrey-Niffenegger-life-time-Meetville-Quotes-61195

Life has been very busy as of late. In fact, I don’t think I have ever had so much going on at once before. The last two weeks, we have had something going on every single day/evening. For the most part, it’s good things. Work is steady, there’s our church membership classes and of course church services to attend as well, bowling league, wedding planning, and now to add to that last part…we begin pre-martial classes next month. And then of course, there is my son’s birthday, my birthday, several Christmas gatherings, a friend’s wedding, and such coming up. We do have a stressful situation concerning my son to deal with and it’s not likely it’s going to get any easier any time soon, but we’re committed to making things better for him and getting him the help he needs.

Overall, life is going fairly well and it certainly is nice to have such a fulfilling life, full of so much love and laughter. I have never been so blessed, so surrounded by so many wonderful people that are supportive, kind, and loving. And I love planning my wedding, not the financial part of it lol, but all the details that are going into our special day. I also look forward to the many wonderful events coming up, like my son turning 12 in about two and a half weeks. Despite all that’s going on with him these days, I can’t ignore his birthday. My little man is slowly, or perhaps not so slowly, turning into a teenager and soon enough, he’ll be an adult. I can hardly believe I have a sixth grader who is so intelligent and full of so many ideas for his future. I hope that his future is as bright as he’s dreaming it will be. I will do all I can to help him along the way.

Sometimes we complain that life is too hectic and I will admit it’s nice to have some time to read, write, work on things I have neglected for awhile, and sometimes just do nothing but relax. But, I will say that overall I am alright with how busy we are because much of what we have going on is enriching our lives, helping us grow, teaching us, and providing pathways to brighter futures for us as individuals, as a couple, and as a family. Though, I am happy to have some time right now to catch up on my blogging. I hope all is well in the land of WordPress. I sure do miss you guys and gals when I am not on for awhile. If you read this, perhaps share a story with me? Tell me, what have you been up to?

Our Lives As Stories

story of my life

Every life is full of ups and downs

Sad moments and cheerful ones

Each journey has many stories to tell

They can inspire and help others

Each path we take, every time we stumble and fall

Even the ones we may feel don’t matter

Or the ones that are too devastating to share

They help light the way for others who are in dark places

Tell your stories, let your voice be heard

Write them upon the hearts of others

Show those around you that they’re not alone

And that there’s always a way through

Let people laugh with you and cry with you too

As you share with others, let them also share with you

For they too have lessons learned and wisdom to offer

May our lives come together, touch one another

I pray that my story has been and will continue to help others

Show them that others suffer, but that there’s a way out

There’s a way to heal, to forgive, and move forward

And that there’s more to life than just pain and sorrow

May they also see that there’s so much laughter and joy to be had

That there’s so much to live for, no matter how tough times might get

And that there’s so much love to both be received and taken

Never lose sight of that, hold onto hope, faith, & love all the days of your life

May my story be etched upon your soul, may it live with you

And may yours stay stay with me as well, always teaching me

Let us remember that it’s not just about one person, it’s about all of us

Co-existing in this big crazy mixed up world

Though each light can shine on its own

And even the smallest voice can be heard

Never think you’re not enough to make a difference

It all begins with just a spark

I’m telling my story for all to see

Hoping it does make a difference

Even if it’s just in the lives of a few

So how about you?
