Matters of the Heart

Good morning,

Hope all is well with each of you who take the time to stop by my blog. If I had to set a goal for 2015 it would be that I'm granted more opportunities to write about my faith walk and someone is uplifted,  encouraged and blessed. No matter what is going on around you keep going.

Remember faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. I haven't seen some things yet. Other things I wish I hadn't  seen or experienced. On the other hand,  I've grown and matured so much. So I recognize the importance of my struggles. They've pushed me closer to God and further away from depending on humans. Not that I don't have a good support system but  I NEEDED to learn total dependence.

I've learned to keep dreaming for myself and my students. I'm more sensitive to the roadblocks they face. My gifts are being utilized to the max! I'm Ram tough. #PBLCHS

I've learned how blessed I am to have KT for a son. I spent the first few years of his life worrying that I wouldn't do a good job caring for him. To see the humble,  smart,  handsome, talented young man he's grown into speaks volumes that I did /am doing something right. Note to parents: I didn't give him a lot of materialistic things but all his needs were always met. The memories we've made as a family are more valuable than anything money can buy.

Today take time out to reflect on the good. There are so many others who would gladly trade journeys. Don't judge an individual by their social media life. Reach out to an old friend or family member. Don't text, call. Show them you care. If you are reading this,  you've been given another day. Grab life forcefully and live.
