Staying The Course….

“It takes both Rain and Sunshine, to make a Rainbow”

Life is never filled with only good things, anyway it hasn’t been for me, there will always be the down times as well.  Times that we go through struggles, times that seem like nothing good is going to happen to us and times when it seems so bad, there is nothing to live for.  I can truly say that by the Grace of God, I have made it through those dark times.  Those are the days of Rain…..

Then there are the days of Sunshine……   A Warm loving support network of Family and Friends.   The Lord watching out for me and showing me that misfortune’s can turn into great opportunities.  He has given me a roof over my head and food on the table.  Blessed with 2 wonderful sons, a beautiful grandson and most recently my dream job.  My tribe is growing and I am making some wonderful new friends, that will lead to new, great memories and sunshine.

The Galahs on the Fence…

Through the many trials of life, I have continued to laugh at myself and the world around me and kept the smiles coming.  Yes this road less traveled has it’s share of  bumps and holes, but I wouldn’t change it for anything, it has made me who I am.  I know there are still rainy times ahead, but I am here, I am now.  Things are good,  standing here in the sunshine of the Rainbow of Life.  Thank You Jesus!

  1. Whether or not any event in our lives is good or bad, it’s just a judgement call… I don’t know about you, but I can’t even count how many times something happened to me that I deemed to be disastrous and then it turned out to be the very best thing that could have happened. It’s all in your perspective…. always.

    • Yes it’s always in one’s perspective and how we move forward with the circumstance. It’s a choice we have to make, to either let it devastate us, or use it as a lesson and move on. Usually for me it’s the change in what and how I thought something was supposed to be. Once I take a breath, step back and accept the change for whatever it is… it all works out.

  2. As our life’s tapestries are woven it sometimes looks like the bumps and tugs are anything but beautiful. but you know, as our lives go on, each bump and tug made our life beautiful in such a poignant way
