It's been 10 months since I sat down to write on this blog. Where have I been you might ask. A lot has happen since May 9, 2009. In March, my best friends father passed away. In mid-May, our lives were saddened and blessed at the same time when we had to say good-bye to the Randall Raiders and hello to the Tascosa Rebels. Those two separate events (losing David and not being a Raider anymore) totally hit my emotions. I did not know what to say or even what to think. I knew God was there but why in the world was all of this happening to us and our friends. Months passed and then in February I received the news that one of the greatest men I ever knew, Willard Tate, passed away after a battle with cancer. Then about a week later, I received the news that my college friend, Jenny Bizaillion, had passed away!!!! Oh Lord, how did I ever not know where you were. You have been here the whole time and even though I questioned your reasoning and timing...it was always what you had planned. Did I like it? No...heavens no! Do I still love you...of course! The birds are still and quiet when you speak Lord and so should I!
Keeping up with Jenny and reading her story made me realize something that I already knew. Life is short, precious, and can be taken at any moment. I want my husband, my friends, my friends and especially my children to know how much I love them and how much I love the Lord! I decided it was time to sit back down to this blog and type the words that HE has put in me (thank you Josh for inspiring me to do this)! Sooo, I am back to the blog world!!!!! Look forward to great things to come!!!! I love you!
