Life Changes

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Wow- so much has happened in the last couple of months….where do I start…..

Lets start with the latest first shall we….here meet Turbo

my brand new kitten….my new friend and companion…I wanted a lap cat…I GOT a lap cat…he stays either in my lap or hubbys unless eating or using litter pan. He is sitting on my shoulder as I type this!!!! He is my buddy - I love him very much!

2nd thing going on - hubby started a new job!!!!

it is a paper route and believe it or not - he makes more money at that than he does at the garage where he is a mechanic!!!! He will be giving up the mechanic job soon and we will be able to spend more time together! and the route itself allows us time together as I ride along in the car with him as he delivers.

Now - for the most important thing…the thing I NEVER thought would be part of my life again (since I was a small child) I started going back to CHURCH!

A friend invited me to go to her church on Easter Sunday and I just couldn’t tell her no…she wanted us to go so badly. Well, we went, thinking that we were just being polite and would explain to her that we wouldn’t be going again…Surprise on us!!!! We loved it and everyone there. I am fairly convinced that Daddy caused this. He wanted me to go to church so badly - well I finally found one I am comfortable with! I am so happy to be a part of the church family now!

So as you can see - I have a whole lot of irons in the fire right now…I simply have not had time to devote to Spark People like I should….that will be changing because I MUST get back in gear before I regain all that I have lost!!!!!

ps....I just talked to Letha on the phone and she is doing fine and appreciates everyone asking about her....she is just taking a little break from Spark right now

    I enjoyed this blog, Kat! Turbo is beautiful; the news about your husband's new job is super especially since it is something you can do together. Wow, a new church home too; that is just great and I would feel, as you do, that your Daddy's been stirring the pot up there.
    Both my parents are gone but I still feel their active presence in my life.

    emoticon You have a lot of positive changes in your life. I am so happy for you. Going to a good church and having a great church family is so important in our life. Glad that you and hubby are finding fellowship there. Also, the newspaper route and all of the other positives are wonderful.

    I must say...if I could grab onto little Turbo, I would not let go. What a beauty.

    Turbo is adorable. I want to hold him too and have him sit on my lap. Max is not a lap cat at all, but he will sleep next to me every night.

    I am so happy things have turned around for you and your hubby. God is so good. Having a church family is so very important. May God continue to bless you and DH emoticon .

    I know you still miss your dad. That is a tribute to him and the influence and love he gave you. emoticon

    Wow, this is all great news! Just keep trying to find your balance so that you can keep off what you have lost, you have come so far and it is so worth it to have your health! And Turbo is pretty sweet looking, I am a major fan of kitties, having three myself. I think that they are great stress relievers too!

    It's so great to see you blogging again!

    Turbo is adorable! My Timmy use to sit on my shoulder when he was that age too; now he's 14 years old and around 13 pounds, so he's too big for that now, but he's still a lap cat, as is my Kallie. I know not all cats like to sit on laps so I feel blessed that both of mine do. It's a real comfort.

    I stopped going to church after I graduated high school, but I also started going back to church after I lost my dad. It was my parent's church, and I got to know the pastor when we were planning my dad's services, and I was really touched by how welcoming and caring the other members were to me, and most of them barely knew me at that time. I decided to join that church then because of the people there. Being part of a church family helped to heal after losing my dad.

    Love your good news. emoticon that hubby got a new job, even better that it allows you to spend more time together. Glad you accepted your friends invite to church. It's something I've been thinking about, just haven't did yet. As for turbo he is adorable. Sounds like a perfect match.

    So happy for you! I've been thinking of you a lot lately!!! Glad you're back & so glad for the changes going on in your life (more time with hubby's, with new job & new church family--wonderful). Love your little furry friend, too. You have your spark back--yay! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for sharing all this good news. And so glad to see you back Sparking again.

    You've made some excellent changes in your life. Turbo is adorable -- looks like he is a long-haired cat, right? And the name is so cute -- I know why you chose that. You are always doing the "Turbo Exercises." lol

    Good job on starting to go to church. It usually dawns on us about this time in our lives, if we were not previous church-goers, that we really and truly should be more serious about that aspect of our lives!

    Hugs, Eve

    Congrats on all the new things going on. So glad you found a church to go to and hubby got a new job. Love your adorable little kitten. I wish my cats would be lap cats. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hello there: wonderful news - life has its little surprises doesn't it? I like to call them God appointments. It is exciting to see what is going to happen next. Life is somewhat like a roller coaster up and down and up again. I sure know what it is like to lose family members and it hurts long and hard. I have lost two sisters and a brother since 2007, 2008 and 2013. Enough I said, but life does go on. I like to count my blessings and I do have so many.

    Look at you, a new cat to love and hug, and more time to spend with your hubby and he is making more money and warm memories of our lost ones will be cherished forever. I like to think they would want me to enjoy life and carry on. I am sure that is true in your life too.

    You have a Father in heaven who loves you with such a big love....as you discover Him even more you will be sure to agree. I know I lean on Him big time.! Blessings to you even more, boomerang blessings are sure you come your way! emoticon
