6.Continue to make money by creating and sharing my thoughts and beliefs through artistic expression: all the while hoping that my art will impact others. "Holly Kennedy

: All I know is, if you don't figure out this something, you'll just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if it's a work of art, or a taco, or a pair of socks! Just create something... new, and there it is, and it's you, out in the world, outside of you, and you can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and you know a little more about... you. A little bit more than anyone else does... Does that make any sense at all?" Quote from PS I LOVE YOU

So grateful!

Sometimes life just throws the towel at you! But you can either throw it back, or decide to take a bath. I want to bathe, in His love and peace. I want those healing waters to wash over me and my family. I will not give in!

Sickness is a horrible part of my life right now. From the words of my pediatrician the only way for Joslyn to get healthy is for her to get sick! Yeah that makes sense! NOT!

We are dealing right now with a nasty virus that has left us full of snot and empty of energy.
I know it snot what you wanted to hear right? HeHe!

But, really! I could be disappointed that this is messing with my workout schedule. I could moan about how hard life is, and how much the medicine has cost us, how much sleep has been lost in the void. But I have been recently humbled from some things that make me so grateful for what I have now. Friends and family that help us when we need it. Like my adopted mom Marcie who came all the way across town to help me give Joslyn a breathing treatment. And my sister who comes over with my nephew risking the germs to cheer me up and make dinner for us! Two Celebrate Recovery families that love me exactly as I am hurts, habits and hang-ups. The most amazing husband that a woman could ask for. And you guys! Wonderful blog readers that take my life as it is and encourage and share your lives back with me.  

But, now I need you! God is trusting us with some scary situations right now. I can't get into it, until we know for sure, but will you please pray for us? We don't want our fear to guide our lives, we want God to. And I pray for you too! That you will let God guide you in all you do. But the great thing is that if we fail, He loves us just the same, and we should do that for others too! Not treating their failures as bad, but as opportunities to humble us, to teach us and to bring us closer to Him.
