Day #13 I am grateful for computers.

I am grateful for computers because I love to write though if I did everything with pen and paper I would be here forever because I hate messy papers. Lol! Ok, I am a lil’ OCD in my own way. :b

Day #12 I am grateful for my close dear friends.

I have many of them, the more I think about it the more I amazed how many I have and how amazingly they came into my life. Though sometimes God brings us into each other’s path and leads us to another area doesn’t mean that we will be apart. God has a journey for each of us, though we may not be in physical vicinity of one another doesn’t mean our friendship is strained or gone. I am amazed at the people God has given me and no matter how long time has passed; we just pick up where we left off like there is no problem. I am so excited for these relationships He has brought me and the relationships He will bring into my path. Our my sweet loved ones, you know who you are, I adore you! I am mentally hugging you! Love you forever and always!

Day #11 I am grateful for technology.

I am grateful for technology; that we can at a push of a button or a few buttons contact our loved ones in a just a few minutes. We so take for granted that we can phone, Skype, email, Facebook… and keep in touch with those we love. I so appreciate that each day I can talk to my hubby, that I can call my mama, that I can email pictures to my friends and share what is going on in our lives. I am so grateful to live in this day and age to have this wonderful opportunity to stay close to all my loved ones!

Day #10 I am grateful for my grandparents.

I am grateful for my grandparents: my mother’s parents (I never got to meet her father because he died when she was 11, her mother died when I was 6, Grandmama Mary was very sweet and the memories I have of her are all dear to my heart), my father’s parents, Grandma Dixie and Granddaddy Fuzz, who have been a major part of my life, and Mafalda Cannone who adopted me as her granddaughter. My Grandma Dixie who said, “the next one is mine” and kept her word , she rocked me, took care of me and prayed over and for me. My Granddaddy Fuzz has me wrapped around his little finger as he always has. All because two people have fell in love so many wonderful people have come into my life and most of all I was born. I thank you all for loving me unconditionally. To my adopted Grandmother Mafalda, who I am so grateful for, thank you for always listening, loving and praying for me. I am so blessed that these people are a part of my life and the love they give and share. Thank you for loving me like no other.

Day #9 I am grateful for books.

I am grateful for books; I loved reading and looking at books as a child though that passion dwindled away as I got older. It was boring and too time consuming to read. Though after I became an adult I began to read again and the passion came back. Aaron has told me one day that I had so many books I could start my own library. When I replied with a smile and enthusiastic YES, Can I? He said, No. Oh well, LOL!! Though I cannot have my own library; I still love books, love to read and research new things. I have met too many that cannot read or don’t want to read and it breaks my heart; they are missing out on some many things. There are so many books and adventures and so little time. Good night y’all going to go read before bed. Sweet reads before sweet dreams!

Day #8 I am grateful for my country.

I am so grateful to live in this country of liberty and opportunity. I am so grateful to have the freedom to worship God the way I believe He has called me to do. I am so grateful that we have a rich history of people who have stood up for freedom and liberty. Even though our country has major problems and major failures, I love her and I will stand by her. My life is all about God, Family and Country. America I believe it is still a beautiful and wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. I am so proud that I have family and friends throughout the past and present that have fought and are fighting for the land of the free. I am so grateful to all have served our country. I salute the flag and our soldiers for I know that we would not be here if our people and soldiers did not stand for our Constitution. God bless America and our troops!

Day #7 I am grateful for God’s Word.

I am so grateful for God’s word, The Bible. I so grateful I can trust it and rely on it in every aspect of my life. I am grateful that I can trust that God cannot lie (Numbers 23:19, Malachi 3:6, 1 Samuel 15:29, Romans 3:4, Titus 1:2, Hebrews 6:18), I can trust his character (Isaiah 40:8, 1 Peter 1:25) because I trust His word, I trust his word because I can trust His character. It brings me guidance, hope, comfort, and peace that go beyond understanding (Philippians 4:7). God is good all the time and all the time God is good!

Thankful Month Day #6

Day #6 I am grateful for my babies. 

                       I am grateful for my babies even though they are not here with me and they are with God, they have taught me so much. I have learned that you can love someone that you have never met. That it would be wonderful to say hello before you had to say goodbye. If I can survive loosing you, I can survive anything. That life is all about trusting God and not your circumstances. I learned that I needed to have Mercy before I could have Grace. Though the pain still hurts from my empty arms, I wouldn’t trade you for anything for you. I love you and cannot wait to see you and hold you in my arms. I have learned that I can trust in God with anything because I can trust Him with everyone of you and that y’all are happy and content while waiting for me to come home.

I love each one of you, Love Mama.
 (Psalm 139:13-18)

Thankful Month Day #5

Day #5 I am thankful for my siblings.

                        God has blessed me with a great family; my siblings, Susan and Clayton, are so dear to me. They are such blessings to me and I so appreciate them putting up with my bratty years and forgiving me for being so cruel and for sticking up for me when needed. I so appreciate their friendship and excited that I am an aunt to some of the greatest kids I know. I thank you for all the good memories and many more to come! Thank you for all you done and do, it does not go unnoticed.
 Love you forever and always!

Thankful Month!! Day #4

Day #4 I am thankful for my friends. 

God has sent me so many friends and loved ones! Some being blood while others are just knitted in my heart. Though time may run away from us and us not staying close, we are always like we never left. So appreciate all that they have done for us and all your support! We love you forever and always!!

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their hard work. 10 If either should fall, one can pick up the other. But how miserable are those who fall and don’t have a companion to help them up! 11 Also, if two lie down together, they can stay warm. But how can anyone stay warm alone? 12 Also, one can be overpowered, but two together can put up resistance. A three-ply cord doesn’t easily snap. 
- Ecclesiastes 4:9-12


Thankful Month!! Day #3

Day #3 I am thankful for my parents.

My parents are so special to me! Thank you for putting up with me, for lovingly disciplining me and spanking my butt when I need one, sticking by me even when I fell on my face, helping me up when I am down, forgiving me, making me laugh and learn to laugh at myself; teaching me to stand up for what I believe in even when it is not popular, teaching me to that marriage isn't easy but it is worth it, that family is important and teaching me to love unconditionally to all who come into my path. I love you! Always and Forever!!

Thankful Month! Day #2

Day #2 I am thankful for is Aaron, my hubby.

He is my best friend, my life, my rock, my lover, my companion, my partner, my everything!! We have been friends for 16 years, been married 14 years! It has been many Wonderful years and many more to come BeBe! You are my beloved and I am yours (Song of Solomon 6:2), Always and Forever!!

Thankful month! Day #1

Though ever day should be thankful day, I do think it is good to voice our thankfulness and say what we are thankful for. So this month I am posting what I am thankful for.
I know I am behind, so be patient with me as I catch up!

#1 thing I am thankful for is GOD.

I know He is taboo to talk about but I cannot keep my mouth shut. My GOD is amazing! He is my Rock (Psalm 62:7), my Comforter (Isaiah 61:2; Psalm 86:17), my Shield (Psalms 5:11-12), my Shepherd (Psalm 18:1-2; Psalm 23), my Strength (Psalm 18:1-2; Philippians 4:12-13), my Light and Salvation (Isaiah 12:2; Psalm 27:1) , my Resurrection and Eternal Life (John 11:25-26), my Victory (1 John 5:4), my Refuge (Psalm 9:9-10), and my Friend (John 15:5).

He has changed my life! He gives me hope and peace in the midst of the roaring storms I have, do, and will face. He will never forsake or leave me (Deuteronomy 31:6, Hebrews 13:5). He has written me on the palm of His hand (Book of Isaiah 49:16) and there I am safe and nothing can separate us (John 10:27-30; Romans 8:38-39). He is mine and I am His (Isaiah 43:1, Isaiah 62:1-12). Forever and Always I will be His! Thank you LORD!!
