Hi there everyone, yes I'm back....that's why they all call me tough...your not counted out till you give up. I Didn't give up and here I am 1yr and a month later after a very rocky year...I suppose that my purpose is not yet finished. I'm so glad that God thinks like I do, or maybe I should say I'm glad I think like him...anyway we do agree...I need to still be among the land of the living..."THANK YOU LORD!"


Don't look at where you are;
just see how far you've come.

We all make mistakes sometimes, but don't stop now.
The dawn is closer than you think.

Yesterday will soon fade away,
and every day is a BRAND-NEW BEGINNING!

Open your heart and receive all the love and hope
so many people feel for you, as well as all their prayers.

Never let go. Never give up.
The future is yours to decide.

The pattern of your life is yours for the making.
Let your promise shine through.

Give everything to your dreams; give luck a chance.

You are stronger than you realize,
braver than you may think...

And loved more than you will ever know....

I do know that since 09/08: I have almost quit a few times...but because of all those who believed in Miracles, and never gave up on me; HERE I what I have shared with all of you, this blog pertains to all of us! I hope you find these word I know this to be all to true. When it is the darkest that is when the light comes through the other side and we go on.

I am so happy to be Well and Healthy...I must admit there were a few times I wondered if I would ever be able to say that again...and yet here I am!

I'm living proof that "You CAN do anything!

I thank you all for allowing me to share my thoughts with you today. I look forward to your comments.

    I just found your blog today, although you wrote it several months ago. i know that it was no accident that I read it today. I have been struggling with a situation in my life that feels hopeless. I was beating myself up today for making mistakes and was ready to give up. After reading your blogs today, I know that your words were sent to me by God. Today you are my angel who encourages me and strengthens me to continue on in this fight, trusting that MY GOD WILL NOT allow me to fail; HE WILL see me through!!!!

    God bless you,
