haPpY biRthDaY little BRO...

today is my brother's birthday. this is a difficult one for me. he turned 34 and he is not with his family. last month or so he decided to enlist in the army. he did so well on his test that instead of leaving in october he left last month.i know for me it was very difficult to understand but for him it wasn't a hard choice at all. he will be able to provide for his family of 5 kiddos and his wife,do what he loves and serve his country. he is not the first to enlist in mY family. he is just another one of a long list... siblings, a father and father-in-law, grandfather, aunts, uncles and cousins. i just wanted you all to know how much i love him and how very proud of him i am. happy birthday

jeremy!!! you are in my thoughts and prayers daily. love your big sis

ps. thank you!

{haPpY 1 yEaR!!}

i can not believe that it has been a year already. i made this challenge to start a blog on september 17, 2007. i was inspired by attending creative escape last year and taking rhonna farrer's class. as i have gone back and read my posts from last year i get all inspired again. yes, the rest is still unwritten but, the ride has been a journey. so much has happened within this past year. things i would of not guessed would happen. i am taking the time today to reflect on the positive as it has not always been that way. to think of the small things. you know, the things we take for granted. try it, think of the small things that put a smile on your face. this past year has been a very difficult one for me. my life has been on a road untraveled. i plan on coming back later tonight and let you know about some positive things and the small ones too. as i still search to find mE i am finding out that i am stronger than i thought. that i can do many things that i have never done before. that in time i hope to find all that i am looking for and that i can continue to say...the rest is still unwritten yet know what road to travel. have a great day and thanks for taking this journey with me. *hugs* connie
