time to reflect!!!

it's friday, i'm sitting here at my pc filling in time while i wait for another load of washing to finish it's cycle, reflecting on the week we've had and wondering will it ever be any different? this week has been a particularly turbulent time for tim and i and although i won't go into detail, i will just say that life can really deal you some pretty hard knocks from time to time even on top of everything else we already deal with. however i will also mention that although the hard knocks may come, thick and fast, i will not let them get the better of me anymore, even after hitting the ground i will get back up again, i will stand tall, i will stand strong because i know God will be there right next to me holding me up and not allowing me to utterly and completely fall. although a difficult week, sleepless nights, worries and fears not just for myself but for those of my children who are hurting deeply at present, it has given me an opportunity to pause, stop and reflect on past things, the here and now and the immediate future for not only myself but that of my family.

love is an incredible thing, for some it does not come so easily, for others it is painful and for most of us it means so much more then words can express. when it comes to our children we are the lioness who will do what it takes, who will go to the ends of the earth to do what is necessary in order to protect our cubs, whatever it takes to keep them safe and out of harms way till they are ready and able to fend for themselves and even then we will be there for them, to step back as we need to and to step in as we should.

for me these past few days have been a time of reflection, a time to pause and revisit events in my life, some good, some bad and some that are incredibly painful in order to move forward and make progress not just for me but for my daughter stephanie who is going through an incredibly rough time at present and although it completely breaks my heart to see her in so much pain, i trust in God that he will bring us through this and we will see the light at the end of the tunnel.

until next bloggin' i hope you all have a great weekend and tell those you love how much they mean to you. take care and stay safe, hugs chris xoxo
