I am so glad May is over. It was not a very good month at all, except for Dustin's birthday , but he is serving our country in another country so...But on to a brand new month.
I believe that everyone comes to a point in their life when things just come together. Life, relationships,the mistakes you have made, where you have come from and where you are going all begins to make sense. I am 54 years old and I am there.
It is a good place to be.
It may sound silly but I had my light bulb moment yesterday when my husband said something that really hurt my feelings and also made me mad. Normally I would argue with him and let him know what I thought and why I thought it and on and on. But I didn't say a word. I am not usually one to give the silent treatment and that is not why I chose to be quiet. I knew that if I opened my mouth I would start spewing and it just wasn't worth it. I still think what he said was wrong but that is for him to figure out.
I have also realized I can't fix the problems of everyone I care for, I need to have some time for myself, that even though I would adopt every child that needed a family I can't, that time is precious, that when we lose someone we care for life does go on and most important my walk with God only gets better with every breath I take.
He has loved me through some very bad times even before I asked Him into my heart. He gave me this life and the choice to be everything He put me on this earth to be.
Now I do need to work on patience. And that will happen, but one day at a time my friend, one day at a time.
