Good morning! It's Monday - if you like Mondays you need HELP!!
I have been struggling with how to write this for more than one hour but here goes. It has come to my attention that there are a lot of people out there who read my blog that I didn't know about! Hopefully - they still like me!! :) Several from out of state read my blog and there is more than one from my very own church that read this. So - for some this one part may make sense and for others it won't so read on!
I think that most people that know me know that I am a very passionate person on some things. Most know that I am quite out-spoken which is a trait that I am trying to work on by the way!! Most know that I can probably argue till I am nuts! BUT - for those of you that were in SS yesterday and you know who you are....I offer this apology!! I was WAAAAAY too passionate about the topic we were discussing and probably stepped a little (or way!!) over bounds. I must be frank and admit that I get sooooo tired of the blanket statements it is so easy for people to make. I know that since I have made them myself and am desperately trying to change that! So without going into detail, please accept my apology and know that I will NOT be making that mistake again!! AND - for you lurkers, share this with your spouse and yes, you know who you are too!!!!
On to brighter things, THE GIANTS WON THE SUPER BOWL!!!! I was thrilled beyond words for Eli Manning!! I bet that Peyton was as excited as can be!!! Anyway, that was a fantastic game and it goes to prove that in the end, cheaters NEVER win!!
Even brighter, got a phone call from David yesterday which took me out of church but I will do whatever I have to to have a phone call from him!! He is doing well and we are finally allowing ourselves to start the "countdown" of sorts! Of course knowing that things can change at a moments notice, we are trying to remain "semper gumby" - "always flexible"!! He seems to be doing well and maintaining his ornery sense of humor!!
Just a few more days of me being a loney "widow" and Dave will be home. I am quite ready for that to happen!! I was as lazy as can be this past Saturday and now have to work extra hard to make up for it in the evenings. I really need to get some things done before camp starting on Thursday! I can't believe it is that time of year already but it is!!
I must admit to one final thought - I am so thankful for what God has been teaching me lately. It seems there have been some areas that I have really struggled with in the past few weeks or so and painful though it is, God is helping me to grow in ways I never thought possible! He is showing me things in my life that I have tried to "overlook" but HE is instead, making me deal with them! I am so grateful that HE chooses to be patient with me!
