Today I am grateful for....

God showing me that there is beauty in even the most uncomfortable and cold situations.

It has been one heck of a day.
Unfortunately, I learned that my 'fiance' of almost two years had put up a profile on a popular dating site claiming he was looking for someone.
No, it's not a rumor and yes, I have proof.

Though I am unbelievably hurt and angry, God is here with me.
I didn't know why He led me to those particular plants to photograph them this afternoon, but now I see that He was showing me that I am just as strong as they are.
They have withstood this cold and painful time of winter and are still there....
for the sun to shine down on them and fill them with the warmth they need to begin growing and flourishing again.
So am I.

My Mom !!

Today is my mom's birthday! 

How can I describe my mother?  She is much quieter than me but she has learned to appreciate my sense of humor.  She is more tolerant than me in some things but watch out when she loses her temper (this happens very rarely). She is giving and loving and everyone who knows her just adores her.
She has been an amazing mother to me and now I know what a hard job that is.  Especially since she cursed me with the "I hope your kids are just like YOU!" voodoo!

Happy Birthday, Ma!!
I love you!
