Storms of Life
Do you ever feel tossed about like a leaf in a storm? I think we all do sometime and I know that for most of this year that is how I have felt.
I knowthat even though the skies are dark and sometimes I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel I am much stronger than I thought I was and that no matter what happens I will make it to the other side.
I am one of those people who feel that no matter what situation you find yourself in that it has something to teach you and from this rough patch in my life I have learned a lot.
*home cooked is most always better than takeout and better for you
*family and friends are life's greatest treasures
*a strong marriage is worth it's weight in gold
*that sometime the most beautiful place on earth is right in your own back yard.
*I feel closest to God in nature and the natural world.
*that material things tend to weigh you down in life
*that new isn't always best
* that having a job is a blessing
*that smiles and thank you's go a long way.
I want to return here and start blogging more in the fall and winter and to share what a lovely part of the world I live in and learn from each of you who visit here.
I hope that with the fall leaves that drift down that a lot of the fear and stress that has resided within me the past year will slowly release and let go and that come springtime I will feel renewed.
The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
