Love Post #14 ~~ My Life...


***This picture is a glimpse of my life. It's where I love to spend my time. It's my happy place. It's usually not so cluttered, but the piles are there for a reason. There are books there that have been returned after loaning them out, there are books to be read, loaned out and put away. There are some things to go through - school papers, ladies group ideas... The little cabinet holds some of my favorite treasures. The walls are adorn with special pictures and gifts from friends. There is a picture of my Great-grand parents on their wedding day...I love it. It's my story.***
I love my life. I love every aspect of it. Are things always perfect? No, but I am blessed beyond measure.
My husband is my true love and my best friend.
My children make me proud and make me love life even more.
I have a wonderful family. We love each other and are the best of friends.
I am humbled by the awesome church family that God has given us.
I am thankful that I know how to be a friend and am learning every day what true friendship is all about.
I am thankful that there are many parts of me - the wife, the mother, the friend, the sister, the daughter, the artist, the teacher, the listener, the supporter, the forgiver, the thinker, the joker... I could go on.
It has taken me a while to get to the point where I am happy with myself and who I am.
I am a work in progress.
I am learning to prune out clutter and negativity.
I am learning that God is good. Always. His ways are not our ways. We do not always see the Big Picture, He does.
I am learning to embrace opportunity and shun discouragement.
I am more aware of showing gratitude.
I love to write, but sometimes, the words get stuck.
I lovet to create, but there is something just at the tips of my fingers or rather at the edge of my soul that is going to burst forth soon. I can feel it.
Life is good.
I am blessed.

Hi Sherry,
Just caught back up with you after a very busy couple months. Your blog is so soothing to read. Thank you for being you. Wish we lived a little closer. I'd love to spend more time with you. More than just via e-mail and blogs....although this is such a wonderful way to stay in touch.
Love you.
Rachel
