New things....

So lets see if I can post a post from my tablet, my computer isn't liking me at all. First thank you for hanging in there with me. It means the world to me when you email me or post  comment even when I am not around.
Along with the issues at hand other things have come up but you know what? The Lord has plans and we have got to trust him. Mike lost his job, the big promise of a future at a huge company didn't pan out. So he moved home, lost all hope at lots of life skills and fell into a small depression. However the Lord listens and great things happen and his life has became the life he dreamed about. He wanted to be near home, be a diesel mechanic, and find a home. As of last night it all has happened. Praise the Lord!
Without Cindy life is different but we are working through it. With daddy we are learning cooping skills. Lawyers are people we never needed but are working with. Plus lots of other stuff but we are trying, learning, striving and most importantly leaning on the Lord and trusting him. Life isn't easy but manageable.
It's time to take care of me so I can keep taking care of them.
A work in progress is starting again.
Take care my friends. Blessings to you all!

I'm glad to hear that things turned around for him. I know what it's like to hope and dream and work hard for a job that doesn't pan out. I wish you and your family the best!

I am so happy that Mike's dreams are working out which means you will be a happier person too. I'm never happy if my kids aren't happy. Nobody ever told me that was how it works.

You are 100% correct that you need to take care of yourself so that you are better able to take care of others. Welcome back, and don't be a stranger, as we say in the South. :)

Despite our best laid plans, opportunity doesn't always take the path we expected. At times the change crushes us. More often than not, we find in retrospect that it all worked out for the best. Most likely this will too!

: ) Sometimes He says No. We dont understand why, but we still need to listen. (even tho thats much easier said than done!)

Wow, a lot has been happening in your life. Sounds like things are getting a little more managable for you all. I'm doing good, just haven't been keeping up in the blogging (or health habits)life for a while. I hope things continue to even out for you and all goes well.

I'm so happy for Mike! Is he living at home or did he get a place for himself too?
Glad you have been trusting in the Lord through all of your hardships!

Julie, it's good to hear from you, and thanks for stopping by my place. Life sure takes us on some crazy rides but we're usually better people for having hung on to the end. Glad things are turning around for you!
