Holiday Season

Well the holidays are upon us and I just can't seem to get in the spirit. Guess not having anyone but me at the house just doesn't seem worth the trouble of decorating. Luckily, I have friends that are in the spirit so all is not lost.

I was on vacation this week and Freddie and I went and visited Prissy at Cottage Conrad. I truly appreciate Prissy sharing her piece of heaven with me. I go to Cottage Conrad and relax, shop, craft and enjoy the two best friends a girl could have. They never expect anymore out of me than what I can give and I love them as though they are my sister and brother. I am truly blessed for their friendships as well as Christy and Deannie. Without these four people I'm not sure how I would have made it through the last five years. From the bottom of my heart. THANK YOU!!

I am thankful this year and every year for my wonderful family and friends - for they keep me going.

May everyone have a Very Merry Christmas and I hope 2011 is a wonderful year for everyone.

Just a few random thoughts---

Well I'm not sure where this summer and year have gone but it's going fast. Have been able to spend some time with great friends and have enjoyed every minute of it. Still have tons to do around my house -- hopefully some day I'll get it done. Am looking forward to what lies ahead for the rest of the year - surely it will be more productive than that last several months for me. :)

What do you Say?

What do you say to a friend(s) that you know are hurting so badly that no words on this earth can ease their pain. You would give anything to take that pain away but you know you can't. You truly understand their pain and why, but you feel helpless because all you can do is stand there. You see in their eyes the pain but you also see the love, joy and laughter. So for the words that I don't say please know that I love you and am here with a big hug.

Just a thought.

I'm not as eloquent with words as most people, but what I do write/say comes from the heart. I have been very blessed in the last four years to have become friends with some wonderful, loving and caring people. These friends have stood beside me no matter what and their friendships have been put to the test. So from the bottom of my heart - THANKS and I love each of you dearly!

Home - Sweet Home

Well I made it home and am back to reality. Not sure I like it very much. Was glad to get home and see my animals but not so glad to get back to work. Sure miss the friends that got to stay behind - but they too must return sometime. It was a great time with good friends. Thanks guys!

Cottage Conrad

Well my time at Cottage Conrad is coming to an end. I head home tomorrow. Not looking forward to returning to the "real" world but do miss my pets. Am worried about my little Miss Libby. Had a cancerous tumor removed from her leg and am waiting for the plan of action to take now, but am going to worry with that when I'm home - for now am enjoying - good friendship - good times - good food - good drinks and lots of good shopping. What more can a girl ask for!

Thanks Prissy for having me to Cottage Conrad - it was just what the doctor ordered. Relaxation! You and Freddie make it home safely. Hmm Hmm Hmm (hail to the chief)!.

Am taking off the end of this week to spend time with two of the greatest, most loving and best friends a girl could have. We are off to do a scrapbook class and then to Cottage Conrad for rest, relaxation, scrapbooking, shopping and laughter. These two people - Freddie and Prissy - know me better than I know myself sometimes. They pick me up emotionally, when I can barely pick myself up and sometimes carry me. For their friendships, love, support and hours of laughter I thank them and I am truly blessed to have them in my life.

You would think "Spring has Sprung"

Today was such a beautiful day. Went out and worked with my horse and had the pleasure of spending time with my niece. Now days most young people aren't some one I would want to hang with but my niece doesn't mind hanging with me, or at least she doesn't act like it. I've always enjoyed being around her.

I hope that this beautiful weather sticks around and we don't have any more snow.

Ready for Spring

Today is a beautiful day outside and I so wish I could have been off to enjoy it.
I'm so ready for spring. This has been a cold and wet winter. Hopefully today is just a start of many more pretty days to come.

I'm still alive!!

Well life has been busy with lots of battles along the way. Some I've won and some I haven't. Some with Kala and many within. I have witnessed life's joys and heartaches. Without the love and support of my friends and family I don't know that I could have made it through any of these battles. I have watched my friends and family go through their own battles and I realize that mine are really not all that bad and if I would give the majority of the battles to God - he will take care of them, and yes he does answer prayers. I hope that I have been at least some help to those who have time and time again stood by me and helped me. I could not ask for better friends or family.

I moved Kala into an apartment back in July and have learned to "live" in my house again. Now I just need to make it my home again and not just a house. I know it will come in time. I told a friend "that my give a care was broken". They said that they thought it wasn't broken - that I do care about my friends and family - it's only broken when it comes to me. That comment has made me do some real thinking and I've come to the conclusion that those were some good words of wisdom.

I hope that in this year that I can get more of my things in an order that I am pleased with. I hope that I can play often and really enjoy what life has to offer and not sit and wish for what might/could be. God has a road mapped out for me and I just need to put my faith in him. He will not lead me wrong.
