Belly Laughs are Good for the Soul

I have had a great week so far. I am off for five more days. Yea! I have done alot of thinking about my ladies group "Unlimited" and the upcoming bible study. I so want God to do great things in our ladies. I believe we all become so busy that we have little time for relationships outside our family. I want to encourage women to cultivate some relationships with some girlfriends. So many times we feel like we want to stay within our shell like a turtle for fear of getting hurt. Believe me, I just have walked through a place in my life that has shaken my beliefs to the core. BUT, I know that God has it all under control. I will not let Satan win in this area of my life. I intend to be a Lion Chase and quit living like I am wanting to arrive safely at death. I have much life to live and intend to live it with hilarious humor. I love to laugh. You know those belly laughs. They are good for th soul. Let me encourage to laugh. Have a blessed week.

Getting Started on my staycation.

It has been a fun day. I am so thrilled to have ten days off straight. My plans are to craft, craft, craft. I so want to get started with my etsy account, but am scared to death and to be honest, I do not know how to do it. All help would be appreciated. I have come to a time in my life, where I am trying to simplify and get out of debt. I am tired of being a slave to debt. My oldest son got married April 10th and youngest will be getting married March 5, 2011. I am excited for them both but it makes me sad at the same time. If I could go back and parent now, knowing what I know, it would be totally awesome. I miss those little guys running around the house and driving them from ball game to ball game. Oh if I could have a 1.00 for every ball game that I sat through, I would be rich. I cherish those memories. To all you parents out there in the saga of the teenage years, take heart this too shall pass. If I could give you any piece of advice, I would tell you to enjoy the journey and stay the course. Set boundaries and don't budge. There will be times when you just don't like your teenager, but let me tell you that they do grow up and you will like them again. I love my boys and the Men that they have become. Take heart, dig deep and enjoy.
