I am blessed today because I refrained from killing my 16 year old stepson. No small feat!

I am blessed because I was able to complete my 5K Walk/Run yesterday as a walker in under 65 minutes when I thought it would take me 1 1/2 to 2 hours to complete...if I made it. Praise God.

I am blessed that so many things in my home are in working order and not malfunctioning. I choose to give thanks for those instead of becoming upset over the ones that are broken, trusthing that God will help me to get water service restored tomorrow!

I am blessed that even though my 9 yr old grandson locked my car key in the trunk while I was at their house out of town babysitting, my DH can overnight me another key, and a friend of my kids left his car & keys here so I can use his car in the meantime! My DIL even left some cash so we're not broke (did I tell you that my purse was in the car?) And this JUST happened!

I checked out your page and LOVE your hair! And I don't think it is superficial at all - I think God was smiling when you donated your hair to cancer patients.

If it's O.K. I want to be a bit superficial. My hair has been the same since High School. Long and Straight. A few years ago I ventured out and got some layers which I loved.

Well, I went in for a trim and came out, BLESSED today!

I think God set me up for that. I was offered the "opportunity" to donate my hair to cancer patient wigs. Next thing you know, I am 11 inches lighter.

You can check it out in my photo gallery.

God is so Good. He even cares about my silly old haircut!!!!!!

I/We are blessed to be spared from the massive hail storm that moved thru our area last night from 8pm until 2am.
Last March 3 hail storms in 1 wk totaled our roof. We finally got it replaced in June & hope to not have to go thru that ordeal again.

I am blessed because Jan 7th my husband had 5 inches of his esophagus removed from cancer 12 wks ago now and he is cancer free at this time. They found it at 0 stage with a biopsy. I am blessed because on Jan 15th his mother who is 84 and lives with us had a large blood clot in her leg and a piece went thru her lung and today she is up and walking on her walker and back to HER normal. and I am so blessed because I had a tumor on my thyroid on the left side and had it removed on Tuesday and home on Wednesday and here we all three sit knowing God has covered us with his mighty healing hands and because He lives, we are blessed. I am also blessed to have this team of wonderful christian women who pray for the needs of those they don't even know like myself. Thank you for all your prayers. I give Him all the praise.

I will lift up my eyes unto the hills from where my help comes from. My help comes from the Lord.

I feel very blessed to have relief from constant pain nagging my left shoulder, hip & neck this past week. Thank you Jesus for providing the spare time & $ for me to get a 20 minute chair massage yesterday. I know this is not economically correct, but appreciate the $20. bail out from my pain. I am so grateful & my Hubby is too!
