This post is going to be real. No pretty pictures to share, just words to you, from me.
If you follow me on Facebook then you already know but, for those of you that don't, after four long, worrisome months, I got a job!
It is one that I had really wanted and hoped to get.
It is close to home which I just love. I don't think I've ever worked in the city I live in.
And, it's doing something new and different, getting me out of my comfort zone.
I want to take this time to thank all of you that kept me and Mr. B in your prayers.
I will be honest with you, I am not a religious person, meaning I don't go to church every Sunday. But, I do believe in God, Jesus and the power of prayer.
I really came to realize how powerful prayers can be this time last year.
Those that have been with me for awhile know that 12 months ago we were given the news that my father had only weeks to live.
Infections had taken over and there was nothing more that could be done for him.
My only wish was that he be able to go peacefully from this world and to be able to be with my mother who had passed over 30 years before.
Unfortunately his pain was horrific.
I sent out missives through emails and Facebook.
My dear blogging friends, you delivered and then some!
I seriously could feel, deep in my soul, your prayers being delivered.
I saw the pain subside in my father's eyes.
I saw peace.
So, when I let you know that I had been let go from my job the first of October and you told me you'd keep me in your prayers, I knew I'd be okay. And I was.
Oh, I ain't gonna lie, there were a few days when I'd let depression take over.
Then, I'd get an email or a text from one of you asking how I was doing.
How did you know I needed you right then?
Maybe it was my own prayer from my heart asking God for something?
Something to make me not feel so alone.
You were my rocks. You made me laugh, you sent gifts to cheer me up,
you told me everything was going to work out, you told me I was going to be okay.
We've never met but you are my sisters in my heart!
I don't know if I can ever properly thank you. I am humbled by your love and caring.
Today I am grateful for blogging, for if I had never started this lil ole blog of mine, I would have never had the utmost pleasure of meeting you.
I am grateful for all of your prayers and positive thoughts.
Should you ever need prayers sent your way, please don't hesitate to let me know.
I owe you big time!!
Much love and peace to you,
