How this blog came to be…
I remember the day that this blog came to being. I had been separated for about a year and was going through the motions of the day-like a zombie-trying not to reminisce for fear of tears. It was the middle of the afternoon and I distinctly hear the word blog. I had shared my testimony in a women’s group on FB. To my surprise, I was invited to do an additional feature piece about myself. The thought you don’t have anything worth saying crept in but I ignored it and submitted what I thought was an adequate bio. There was an overwhelming response to what I shared because apparently it struck a chord with other women who had gone through what I was currently going through at the time. All I did was be myself and the Lord took care of the rest.
A few days later, the Lord placed the idea of doing a blog. Fluffing it off, I continued with cleaning the house but that word wouldn’t leave me alone to the point I had to stop and go to my laptop to google search what a blog was. Seriously. I had no freakin’ idea what a blog was. By this time my youngest arrived home from school and I asked her what a blog was. “Your diary entries online,” was her response. By her tone I could tell that she felt the need to really break it down in order for me to “get it.” 🙂 With that, I did another search for blogging sites and landed her.
In those days prior to starting this blog, depression had taken over-it was ugly and I wasn’t the best company. I had my good days and bad days but there were days when I didn’t get out of my pj’s. My faith in Christ was there yet I had allowed the separation (and other issues branching from that) to take over. So I knew the Lord was leading me out of that pit and into His plan and purpose for me. This was going to be the place for me to share, as the Holy Spirit leads. Not only that, but this was going to be the place where He was going to reintroduce me to myself.
While being here I’ve some wonderful blogging friends, such as:

Being a Christian isn’t boring like some may think. I enjoy a good Star Wars film, and I love the Velocity channel – Go Foose! Singing is a passion of mine and I love being an Aunty to my one-and-only nephew. Being a grandma to my granddoggies Cinnamon & Fennec is sometimes stressful, but so much fun. I never thought that I would be a small dog lover, but these two have sweetly changed all that. 🙂
Family is everything to me. My kids are my jewels and I can’t imagine life without them! I can’t imagine life without my 4. We have our challenges and we’ve been through a lot. Who hasn’t right? But we get through it all with our faith and having a great sense of humor.
