what we need

I have been thinking a lot the last couple of days about my life.

I am so grateful that God knows me. My Heavenly Father knows what I need. I know people might be shocked to hear me say this, BUT I am where I need to be. Florida will always be my heaven on earth, but my family needs to be here. That is why we felt so strongly about coming here. I can see very clearly that the people that are in our life, personally and professionally, were placed in our path for our good. I am grateful that people are willing to be our angels in our times of grief, joy, shock, and awe.

Trials are a tricky thing. They are hard, some are devastatingly sad, but I have desperately needed every one of them. My trials have taught me patience. My trials have taught me trust. My trials have taught me unconditional love. My trials have kept me close to God. I am a better person because I have experienced the things I have. Because of my trials I celebrate all of my blessings! I can so easily recognize now the smallest to the largest of my blessings, and I am in constant awe of how much God in heaven loves me.

Now with all of that said, and not to diminish the direction my thoughts have been lately .......
I just wish that I didn't need to leave my purse, wallet, and camera in the shopping cart at Michaels. Oh well, I know there is a lesson in that somewhere. Pay better attention next time right?

Oh no!!! You didn't?!? I'm so sorry, I sure hope someone is nice enough to return your stuff to you. I think that is one lesson you could have done without. I love you.
