Rockin' and rollin'...

Crying over laundry one day. Scrapping 'my rock stars' the next. That's how I roll. =) If you want to see the page, click on my gallery post here.
There is something so amazing about living in the moment and savoring the simple, the ordinary as it happens each day. The good, the bad...it all has a place in life. The more we recognize that and embrace it- the good AND the bad, the more we have a chance to grow from it, learn from it, and recognize it as beauty. Even when it doesn't look or feel like it.
That's what I am learning. I'm no superhero...I'm no spiritual giant. I'm just an ordinary person, trying to give God my problems as they come, and in doing, I get back more than I deserve. That is one of the reasons I blog and share my faith so openly. I want everyone to know it's available to them and it can change their life, heal their hurts, mend their brokeness and offer peace and Hope in abundance. That is a beautiful thing. Sharing this reality with people who need to hear it is one of my favorite things in life. I thank God that He has given me ways to share myself- through this blog, through scrapping, and in lots of other ways too. I am blessed.

You amaze me more and more as I get to know you and see your spiritual journey!
I want you to know I come here to get a slice. It refreshes me and helps me put my priorities in order.

You are an amazing woman, and I know God led me to your blog as a reminder, so that I may walk as well.

i just love how you roll!! i missed the crying over the laundry, so i'm a day behind. i really love that you share these things with us. it reminded me of a few days after Cole had his surgery. he could barely roll over in bed, couldn't use his left side at all. the left side of his face was just sitting there doing nothing. it was so hard. jason and i had run out to walmart and picked up a few things for Cole, just something to cheer him up. i remember this lady screaming at her child in the buggy because they were jumping up and down and being silly. i just about lost it before we even got in the store. my child could barely move and i would have given anything at all to see him jumping in the buggy. i just wanted to stop her, tell her how lucky she was to have a healthy child to fuss at. i really would have given anything to have that - anything at all.

just thinking about it again gives me the giant lump in my throat i can barely breath or swallow around.

thanks jody - for always reminding us of things we just need to remember!! love you girl!!
