So Many Things 2 Be Grateful For

2008 has truly been a crazy year for my family. We have hit some major successes and have felt the extreme pain of losing three family members. Even through all of this I can still see the silver lining. The fact that I can see it says a great deal about this thing called "Growth." There truly is some genius to this "One Day At A Time" motto. Add that with a strong and profound sense of faith and you have a formula for magic! Not in the hocus pocus sense, but in the supernatural indeed.

This year we couldn't put up our big tree, because our little weiner would not stop knocking the decorations off of the bottom of the tree. But, it's okay because we LOVE our little white tree!

After three days of feeling yucky my princess and I emerge victorious! Today, I secretly ordered the three things she asked for Christmas.

And a cute sewing Machine! She has no idea I've gotten these things yet and I can't wait to see her face on Christmas Morning!

I'm grateful that even though we've had some devastating moments this year we've also had some HUGE Blessings as well.

Today, I was blessed with the finances to be able to bring joy to my princess on Christmas. But even more than that I was blessed with finances that will enable me to bring a jolly Christmas to the children who reside in Sam Ministries (Homeless Shelter) on Christmas morning!

No One But God Could Have Orchestrated This One!!

Today I Feel:

Awesome Moments:
1. Waking up to my family
2. Receiving that financial blessing
3. Ordering my princesses Christmas goodies
4. Watching Joyce speak on Owning our own Peace
5. Putting together a plan for the kids at the homeless shelter
6. Noticing, yet again how loved I am by my Father.


  1. How can anyone not love you? You ARE love :)

    I am so excited for your daughter! Those are totally cool presents!

    How beautiful that you will be sharing with the less fortunate children as well. My dear, you have a suite in heaven :)

  2. Okay! I am a Sims 2 Fanatic!! I love it! Been playing for years! She's gonna love all three of those EPs! I've had Seasons for awhile now, but Apartment Life and Freetime I've had only for a few months. My son and I play all the time. He loves it as much as I do. I try to restrict my gameplay to weekends, but during the Holiday I played everyday for atleast 3 hours at a time.

    I'm going to be playing today too!LOL

  3. What a powerful message. Your princess is fortunate to have you...and the Sims!

  4. Winter Greetings! My Beautiful Friend!
    I had to stop and give a heartfelt thank you for your recent comment on my Christmas Poem, The Unexpected Gift :) Each word, I will treasure and except them humbly and with sincere gratitude.
    Do you know that I treasure you? And there is no doubt in my heart or mind that your family counts the love you have (one for another) as the best holiday present ever!


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
