I'm a silly person and love a good chuckle! I believe I am a bit on the ditsy side but who's keeping score?! ha On a more serious note: I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul! And my husband and children (family) are the most important things in my life! Hope I can be a blessing to those of you willing to torture yourselves and read this blog! LOL

Silly blogspot has issues with comments. If you can't comment on my blog don't worry "YOU're not alone"!!! haha It's nothing personal or not that I know of. Because I can't comment either! BUT... If you choose the option: "Name/URL" and enter your name and if you have a website or blog you "can" but don't have to enter it. THEN you CAN comment. This is a just so you know. I don't wanting anyone going away without sharing their thoughts! Or thinking that we have something against them! We LOVE you! :)

It's been a while!

I haven't blogged in quite some time. I spent a long period of this year going over my life. Even to the point of not knowing just where God wanted me to be and what He wanted me doing. I'll admit I at times felt sorry for myself. Ridiculous, right? Well life can sometimes get tough and we all deal with it in our own ways. I try to so hard implement God's word to live by but I'll admit again that it can seem so easy until I am smack dab in the middle of crisis. I'm working on that!

I have closed my photography business. Now I am full time assistant teaching at Rocky Bayou Christian School. It's been a huge eye opener. Children don't learn in a cookie cutter way. We all grasp things differently. I myself, am very different, as those of you who know me all to well already know! LOL But I am loving every minute of it. I get to teach second grade math and have a small third grade reading group. I find myself falling for each of them. I could take them all home and care for them as if they were my own! It's an incredible experience. I do miss being with my own every second of the day but we are overcoming those obstacles. I get to see them throughout the day so that helps!

We as a family have been through so many changes this year. We left the church we attended for over 10 yrs. That in itself was a HUGE change. Then we decided to for go homeschooling and enroll the kids in Christian School. We also visited many churches in search of the place God wanted us to worship Him! So there have been a lot of new roads and it's not always been sundaes with cherries on top. But God is good and we have pulled through. I am thankful for the Lord's work in my life. It's only through Him that I have made it through all of the years trials!

So as a whole we are still fine tuning our day to day activities. haha Meaning, we are working through the hard times and being thankful for the GREAT times! I can't wait to get back to blogging. I hear some of the funniest stories and so forth from kids at school. I will share and leave the names out of course. For instance I had a child tell me that my upper arms (you know, that flabby part) reminded him of his grandmothers! LOL Now that is a real esteem killer but I didn't let that get me down! haha I told him that must mean I am the sweetest person he has ever met! The entire clas laughed and I can't wait to see what he says next! hahahahahaha

Well I'm off to find myself some more good stuff to get into! Hope you're having a great Sunday afternoon! Be sure to check back! I'll be sure to have something ridiculous to say!
