It's rare that I get down. But it does happen. For the past few days, I have not been at my best. And I really appreciate the goodies, support and encouragement of my SparkFriends. You guys ROCK!!!
I think I know the reason . . . last Friday was the 10 year anniversary of the wreck that nearly killed me but did take the life of the very dear man I had been married to for only 5 weeks.
After that horrible experience, I gave up. I knew I would never be able to allow myself to be vulnerable to such hurt again. I threw myself into my work and buried my heart under a rock and lived there for about 5 years.
But I am thankful that God has a way of turning our mourning into joy. For had it not been for that horrible experience and the dramatic changes and healing that took place afterwards, I would not be the person I am today.
Today, I have so many things to be thankful for; so many things that fill my heart with joy.
For one, today, is the 4th anniversary of my first date (face to face) with my sweetheart, who is now my playmate, soul mate and dear hubby.
"I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go" Solomon 3:4
One more thing that bring joy to my life is my sweet little Buddy "Bad Leroy Brown". I shared part of my yogurt with him this morning . . . . because he will be getting the 'spa' treatment a little later.
Leroy, was that good?
