The journey that I am on is not an easy one with all the ups and downs and the twists and turns but I know it is a journey that is worthwhile and I will gladly go through all that comes my way because I am a better person with all the things I am learning along the way.

Will I stumble and fall? YES!!! Will I get back up? YES!!! Will I give up? NO!!! Will I give in? Only to HIS WILL!!!

There will be detours on this journey and they may come in the form of my health, a relative or friend needing assistance, or even me waking up on the wrong side of the bed, as the saying goes. But the good thing about all detours is that you NEVER have to start over again, you just continue down the road because ALL detours end up back on the main road that you started on to begin with.

God is at the helm and He is working this plan for me and I am thankful that I have included Him as my partner. Yes, it would be nice to have a physical buddy to work with and see daily to give them encouragement as they do me but that is not the case, so I trust that God has walked before me to make my crooked places straight as we go through the ups and downs and the twists and turns of this journey which is like a roller coaster ride.

Lord, thank You, for ALWAYS being there for me and knowing what is best for me while You teach me how to get your temple in Divine Order, as I continue walking after You!!!! In the Matchless Name of Jesus the Christ, AMEN!

    Well, Shawn still can't swim. LOL He can't float either. He said they gave it all they could, but no luck.

    Isaac tricked me as he was at the wheel and just kept going and said "just wait mom" when I asked where we were going. LOL

    Tayler told me tonight that if everything went as planned he would be out this weekend. At this point that would be good. I ask where he's going and I just get a shrug. I told him he didn't have to just jump ship without a place to go, but he's choosing to just get out. So's time.

    Not exactly sure what is going to happen for Maegann as far as employment right now. She wrote a very long letter to her boss that stretched back to when she first received her TBI and memory loss. She was determined that Kristin would know it wasn't the job (for the most part) but how the TBI affects her daily life and that she has devoted this year to getting herself healthy and away from negative coping methods, etc. She never did say "I resign" but you could read that thought into it so I'm curious how Kristin will respond.

    Isaac's first day with the driving instructor went very well. He said it was helpful that he knew the instructor as she's on the security staff at the high school. She could tell he'd been driving before so that's good.
