So on the drive to work this morning I was contemplating the fact that "I LOVE TO WRITE", but have not done so in a long time.
I thought about finding a place to "write my thoughts" and pondered if it should be a PRIVATE PLACE NO ONE CAN SEE...or if I should just BLOG on my sparks page.
When I got to work a friend (thanks Mary) had posted about another friend of hers who had worked on this "Thanksgiving Project". Finding joy or positive things to write each day.
My thoughts said "I AGREE". Although life is hard and sometimes things are difficult, all around are wonderful blessings. Sometimes we are so in the dark we can't SEE those blessings. My hope is that: by writing things I am thankful for...that when the darkness seems to surround me, I will be able to "LOOK BACK" over my list of BLESSINGS and somehow find the SUNSHINE in them.
So for TODAY - the blessing I post is about FRIENDS. Friends that stand beside me who walk me through the HARD THINGS IN LIFE...but also Friends that I have found ON LINE through sparks.
When I struggled with the hospital and over coming all that went wrong...the friends from sparks stepped up and helped me feel loved...and prayed for. The oodles of cards and gifts mailed. The messages of hope and strength they sent through Goodies, spark mail, texts, email. IT was OVERWHELMINGLY WONDERFUL!
I am truly grateful for the wonderful people the Lord has brought me in my life.
I AM BLESSED AND FIND JOY IN THE FACT - I AM NOT ALONE!!!
