.....and life goes on

With all the celebrities that have now gone, and some too early, it HAS to make one stop..... and think, reflect, and institute some personal changes to how you live your life.

Haven't written on my blog for months and it may now be time to come back.

Even though life has thrown curves, stop signs and pile-ups at us, we are still here to tell the story. We haven't totally recovered from everything and it may be years before we do (if ever) but we have had to impliment the story "The Little Engine That Could". God hasn't called us home yet, so every day, hill and valley, challenges of all sorts are getting looked at so much differently. I totally believe that Bill and I have been through a sort of hell on earth, but life isn't over yet. So what are we going to do with all the pain of the past?

That's right! We HAVE made it through and need to rejoice that we don't have to live at the Mission, that we have two beautiful daughters and healthy grandchildren. We are employed, where some are not. We have new and different challenges, but now each one will be handled with a new attitude.

GRATITUDE

Yep, everyday should begin and end with GRATITUDE -- you found the world, Karen. That's when the Little Engine said: I knew I could, I knew I could -- and you can with God's grace and love as your "push". Love ya'
