My day so far

Posted on June 7, 2009. Filed under: gratitute, home and family |

This morning I woke up early!!! Read some more of my book.Β  Got sad and had a cry.Β  Then I found my hands were together like in prayer.Β  I rested in Gods presence and fell back to sleep πŸ™‚


We had lunch at church today πŸ™‚ My friend who got cancer earlier in the year was there πŸ™‚ She looks good πŸ™‚ even though shes having chemo. She did say it was the first time in ages that she does feel ok. LOVE her hair (wig). Makes me wish my hair would grow longer faster. So I can donate mine. My long term goal.

When I got home I looked though another bible based childrens book of mine and started gathering ideas for teaching from it sometime. I have about 2 more lessons from the book Im using at the mo. Weve decided Ill be teaching for the next 2 weeks. I LOVE how the kids are responding to the teaching. Boosts my confidence πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

The one Im using at the mo


The one I studied after church for future lesson plans

I can be grateful today that I finished my home care (my part time job) delieveries I wasnt sure Id be able to and I had to:)


I took my youngest with me when I finished my delieveries after dinner and after we had dropped my oldest at sea scouts.Β  It was pouring down we havent had rain for ages.Β  He wore his new rain coat and pushed his pushchair around behind me.Β  He was as happy as a duck is in the rain.Β  He walked for ages and was a good boy πŸ™‚Β  Then to cap this nice time together off we went home and had a nice warm bath together before picking My oldest up again.

Turning My Thinking Around

Posted on February 11, 2009. Filed under: gratitute, smiles and laughter |

At the moment I am having trouble forgiving myself

In my 2nd abusive relationship I remember the older children hiding under the desk in my daughters room.Β  They were cowering there hugging each other.Β  When my partner at that stage got angry.Β  I am having flashbacks of this a lot at the moment.

I feel guilty that I have been in these relationships where they havent felt or been treated right.

I need to forgive myself.Β  Much easier said than done. I was talking to my awesome friend today (Tracey) I am so so blessed to have her in my life.

I have decided though talking to her to start writing each day something I can be grateful for and also one thing that made me smile or laugh.

Feel free to join me if you want to


I am grateful to my friend Tracey

for all the love and support she gives meT

its much easier having here there for me than it is going through this alone as I have done so in the past where even my neighbour didnt know what was happening

I thank God each day for her πŸ™‚

picnik-collageReading an email from my cousin in the UK made me smile

She is older than me and is full of wisdom

I often wish she was my mother

shes very special too – loving, supporting and encouraging me πŸ™‚
