I had a pleonast friend AIM me today from here :o)
It got me interested to post again.
After my last experience with this site and what drove me off, I no longer feel comfortable telling all about my life still...
I will say, I've spent incredible amounts of time on facebook:
Add me if you guys/gals have face book! It's so much fun!!
So much has happened in my life.
I'm reminded of Kelsey Harris' quote
-Life is more INTERESTING when you're HAPPY
So its time to update again, lol
Sorry but I'm just not much of a blogger as I once was. I'm not big about telling about my life to just any ol joe, if you know what I mean, and I figured if people care to know how I'm doing they'd email or read it off of face book status lol
But I will mention I'm moving into medical processing. I've came up with a great business name and hope to grind it in stone on Monday ;) I've taken my medical exam and passed with flying colos (limit to miss was 5) so I'm really excited about starting it. I'll be getting more from this job then Steven go at his previous job so I'm very excited and blessed the Lord sent this my direction. Hopefully it is what it will take to get us back on our feet. That, and I applied for a job (I am leaving the job title out for many reasons, sorry) Friday evening as the place was hiring and the girl working said it would be cool to work with me... I'll find a way to juggle whatever hours I can get from it and my home business job if that's what it takes lol
Steve Sr was off work all week; I spent Monday and half of Tuesday with Alanna and her parents, super fun! :) And Wednesday was when Kayla had the flu and was sent home for the rest of the week.. she's doing much better :D
Random thought is how proud I am of Jamie for so many reasons, I'm sure you can think of at least two Jamie.... *big hug* I'm proud of you ^..^
That's all I feel like posting about; I ask you keep Steven, his family and myself in your prayers as we journey together through life. And do pray Gods will for this processing job.. my cousin told me about it before she passed away so I know if she was here with us today I know she'd have been proud... I miss you Jennifer!
Terribly tired but excited this week is our gospel meeting!
A thought for today: I recently visited a church with my husband and his family and after services I walked around giving friends I've known the past four years lots of warm hugs. I got to a cute couple I knew and reached out to hug them but for whatever their reason instead of a hug back they just stood there. No warm imbrace just stiff as a stick, making me feel very uncomfortable for trying to show any sisterly love... how we sometimes miss out on such wonderful blessings such as an embrase from our brothers and sisters... You are not guaranteed tomorrow so hug someone today *winks*
"YOU CANT MAKE PPL STOP TALKING ABOUT YOU BUT YOU CAN STOP GIVING THEM SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT.."
Okay well its been forever and I'm ready to get things going on here slightly. I've been able to, with reassurance from those around me, find that I can't worry about how many like being around me or talking to me it's only what God thinks of me. Even the Bible says we can't get along with everyone, but I'm content to know that I've tried my very best to get along with everyone around me and those who don't want me communicating with him/her anymore I will dust my feet off and go my way. They know where I live. I'm not secretive.
What else have I been up to?I've been to the funeral of Kelsey Harris. A young lady who left a mark on so many hundred and millions of hearts around us. I can't wait for heaven so I can see my sweet friend once again! :) My heart aches daily for my cousin, Jennifer. She was always listening to things I was struggling with and was always comforting me to keep moving forward and not to worry about those who don't see me importance in their life. She was like a wonderful big sister in my life and she gave me lots of great godly counsel and passed on some of her shirts she wore when she had Alyssa and Haden which she asked me to promise her I'd wear when I get prego, just before passing away. I'm saving the shirts for Alyssa and for Haden's future wife, although I will keep my promise to her.
And? What else?Steven was laid off work after 10 great years at his job. He kept his cool, let his family know and we started thinking "now what". We began packing right away and with the help of Cameron Tucker (Steven, his family and I LOVE cameron like our own brother/son!) and others we were able to get everything out in 2 days. Thankfully I had went through stuff way before so I had less moving then I had any other moving time in 4 years... unless you wanna count when I left home LOL! Steven found a job within a week and we're slowly getting back on our feet. I'm hoping I have a home business job, data entry so we'll see how this goes...
Good timesI've had PLENTY good times since the last we talked... more then bad (a plus) and too many to name all of them. I've been blessed with a roof and food, plenty of clothes and shoes I could ever ask for as well as extra stuff.. and I was able to get together with my best friend from my childhood, Alanna. She and I haven't been able to see each other for 10 years but since we got back in touch we planned to meet and hung out together and talked about the good old days. We're planning on getting back together again soon. She's one of a few friends I can say I still have close contact with since I was 10 years old!
Thas enough from me for now..... take care yall and leave some love :)
We need to catch back up all, wassup!
Any comments which even insinuate someone trying to start an argument will automatically be removed no matter who you are. I will have peace while I'm on pleo :)
Cousin Jennifer William's funeral was yesterday; thanks for all the prayers and thoughts for her family as we're all going through this tragic loss.
I'm glad that Samantha and her family could come in; they were all a big help and we can't wait to see them next month!
