Today Is Here

Love_heart

Love those you have in your life right now because we’re never promised a tomorrow. Each day we’re given is a blessing, even the ones that don’t feel like one. Life is short, especially when one considers the scope of eternity. Even if one lives to be 100 years old, that time is but a blink of an eye in forever’s mind. I can’t tell any of you to never worry, to never be upset, to never get angry, to never feel pain, or to never be sad because it’s all a part of life. But I can say this, also do your best to give as well as take, show kindness, feel hope, be a friend, smile, laugh, know joy, and to both feel and give love. Today is here and it’s yours to mold, use your time wisely. ❤

A new chapter….

Image

Life has been busy lately and it’s only about to get busier! I just got offered a job as a receptionist at a welding company. My friend gave me the idea to apply there, so glad she did! I start on Monday and I am so excited. Unlike my last few jobs, this one isn’t a temp job, it’s a direct hire from the beginning. This makes me beyond happy because I can caught up on bills, help Doug, do more for my son, and well then I am not beside myself trying to keep myself busy. I like to be busy, to be productive. One day shy of five weeks is all I was unemployed for, this is the shortest amount of time in between jobs and I am happy about that because I feel like less of a burden to those around me. I am so blessed to have had such an amazing and supportive boyfriend and some terrific friends, so very appreciative of all they have done for me while I was unemployed. When one hits what they feel is the bottom and it’s so dark, you find out who is truly there for you. God shone his light, reminded me often there’d be better days and until then, there’d be people to help me regain my footing once more, one day at a time. Thanks again to all those who never gave up on me and who have been there through it all, not just there when it was convenient.

My new job won’t be the only thing keeping me busy. I have a lot to do in the next several weeks. I have a family reunion, Brewer games, weddings, my kiddo’s football games, and so on to attend. I am excited for the many wonderful things I get to be a part of. My life is so full. I may not be wealthy when it comes to my bank account, but I most certainly am when it comes to the amount of love I am given and the love I am able to give unto others. I want to work, to pay bills, to do fun things, and so on…but without the love of my family and friends, my life would be empty and no amount of money and possessions could fill that void. I am excited to begin the newest chapter in my life and so grateful to have many wonderful people to share in it with.

Brangien Illuminated

I am Brangien [Brangaine] of Weisefort, Ireland, lady-in-waiting to my cousin Isolde, who became promised to King Marc of Cornwall. His nephew Tristan escorted us to England by ship. But Tristan and Isolde fell in love at sea. As ye may know, or will find out, they cite the philter they drank as the cause, over which I was supposed to keep vigil. I would like to share my perspective of how I have created good in the world through my herbs and observations. There is much to tell, including how I have adopted this odd language. In good time. My life is in God’s hands. –Inspired by the modern French translations of the Tristan and Isolde texts
