The Sun Now Shines!

Sunshine by Tabitha

Thank God! The sun is once again shinning and I am smiling again! I want to thank each and every one of you who left me words of love and encouragement. I believe the date of Katrina being three days away from my Grandma's birthday (9/1) was a bit much for me this year. But, I am feeling better, hopeful and extremely blessed today. I prayed and cried extra this weekend until I just fell asleep. Ever have one of those cries? When you wake up you are refreshed and renewed! So, now I move on and what better way to start this off than by counting my blessings.

I'm So Deeply Grateful:
-That I was surrounded by love this weekend (I felt your love)
-That my family and I survived Katrina
-That we were supported and given a new life in Texas
-For God's word (I needed it more than ever this weekend)
- That I had my Grandma in my life for 37 of the 38 years I've been here
-For the loving conversations we would have
-That she was the epitome of a true role model
-That she loved me and I felt it deep in my spirit
-For God's grace, mercy, humility and passion
-For the laughter that bubbled out of me just when I needed it
-For late night pancakes with my family
-That I can cry and upon waking He has refreshed my soul
-For tight hugs, warm kisses and LOTS of doggie kisses as well :)
-For life and death and the lessons in between

*Starting September 1st my family and I are going to celebrate my Grandmother's life. We will be doing "A Celebration of Grams." Each day in September we are going to do a kind act in honor of our Grandmother. On her actual birthday (Tuesday) we will be releasing balloons to Heaven. :)
