I wish I had pretty things to show and share. I wish I could say that after my last post on Saturday, that things were better or easier. Those of you that follow me KNOW that even in the darkest of hours I am a "Glass half Full" kind of gal. A Polyanna, a idealist, and yes a survivor. 

I had a huge loss on Sunday, a grief too deep and personal to share. And I had another huge Blow from a loved one the same day.

I will NOT give up, or give in. I will take each day and live it with strength and hope and when the burden is too heavy, I give it to God. 

All too familiar with the expression, "I know God will not give me more than I can handle." And I think HE knows when I say, I cannot handle this and He does step in. Right now, I DO have more on my plate than I can handle, but I know HE is giving me the ability to cope, function and believe that "THIS TOO Shall Pass."

I hope and pray that these adversities will lead me to be more kind, more understanding, more forgiving and yes, even MORE Joyful, because I will appreciate the important times!

May you hold those you love a bit tighter, a bit closer, tell them you love them, appreciate them and share memories. All that little crap we think and worry about? It is NOTHING!! Let it go. Live/Love/Give/Forgive.

My Love and appreciation for you ALL! (Be patient with me for a while, I'm a bit broken)


  1. I stand in prayer for you Shell and may Father God hold you tightly against His loving heart as you go through these hard places. And you shall go through as you are not just a survivor, but more than a conqueror with Jesus Christ our Lord!
