I can’t believe how much time has passed since I’ve been present in the blogging world! How I’ve missed sharing in all of your lives. Much has happened to take me away. I am not even sure I could explain my emotional state. I have been struggling with acceptance. My mother is ill and though I knew the day would come when I would be sitting beside her hospital bed but no matter how much you feel you are mentally prepared for the moment, you never truly are. I spend a lot of my time without adult companionship … I have operated a registered home daycare for 11 years. My days are spent caring for children and my nights caring for my family. So here I was scared, angry, heartbroken and alone… I needed something … someone! And then I spoke to Him. I asked Him for comfort and strength. I asked Him for understanding. And in the stillness of the night I felt a gentle breeze and I knew He had heard me.
“I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. the angels can’t, and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away.” ROMANS 8:38
I've been trying to pull some party favor ideas together for my second Mom and Me club taking place this Sunday. I have a wonderful response and am looking forward to a much needed reprieve from the daily life!
