2010 was a pretty wild year;
I left my job on 7/1/10
DH signed papers for an early retirement as of 1/31/2010 on 7/6/10 and then on 7/12/10 he was diagnosed with advance stage lung cancer. We fought the good fight until God called him home on 3/5/2012. Since then I have been learning how to keep on living. Must say it took me awhile but for the most part life is good! Now I am ready to life to the fullest!
My personal mission statement is-
My personal scripture is

    My dearest Jo,
    I am sharing this poem that you shared recently with us. I love it and just wanted you to see it again.

    Native American Prayer

    I give you this one thought to keep-
    I am with you still -I do not sleep.

    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.

    When you awaken in the morning's hush,
    I am the swift, uplifting rush
    of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.

    Do not think of me as gone-
    I am with you still - in each new dawn.

    Live every second of life to the fullest as Den did with you. Every second you dwell on the past you steal from your future. May the love, strength, courage and faith that you and Den shared and lived daily bring you comfort and peace during this difficult time as you celebrate his life and death knowing that he has completed his mission in life more courageously than anyone I know. His job here is completed and he can now rest in God's heavenly kingdom where God created a special place for him. We will see him again when we are called home.
    Blessings, love and hugs,

    Enjoy your New Year and all that life and God bring to you...blessings, happiness and a healthy lifestyle well as some small stumbling blocks to make the journey interesting.

    Twas the night before Christmas,
    And all through the Inn,
    Not a creature was stirring,
    Except little Ben.

    A trav'ler had told him
    Of a beautiful sight ~
    A manger, a mother,
    A babe born that night.

    The story had touched him,
    Sunk deep in his heart,
    And he thought of it, pondered it,
    Savored each part.

    The trav'ler had told of
    A very great star,
    And wise men had seen it
    From countries afar.

    And shepherds abiding that night
    With their sheep,
    Had heard angels tell
    Of the new babe asleep.

    All had followed the star
    To the manger of hay,
    And shepherds and wise men
    Had knelt down to pray.

    May the blessings and joys of Christmas be with you and your family always! Praying that 2012 will bring miracles of healing into your and Den's life!
