My universe

I must admit sometimes, not often, this world scares me. realistically speaking, the price of gas is going to keep me more ummmmm, "local". thank goodness I am a home body, there is no place like home. I have a sister in law that absolutely has to be going some where, it is unheard of to spend the day at home. And from yesterday's blog, you could tell that i was a little disenchanted with this world of ours. and if I think too much, i am getting depressed by things which i cannot control. This morning, i decided to just focus on my Universe. My Universe consists of my Family, Husband, Children, Home, and Friends. Early this morning, before the kids left for school, they all came into my bedroom just to sit around and chat with me about the days happenings. The robins were outside the bedroom window waking up with song. The sun was slowly rising above the Eastern Hills. And my heart was filled with pure contentment. This is my life, This is what matters. Satan would love for me to get wrapped up in what is so terrible in this world, the feeling of gloom and hopelessness comes from him. and when I feel such gloom and anger in my heart about the government, economy and the direction our country seems to be going in........ surely that keeps my eyes off of Jesus............ just what Satan wants!!! ain't gonna happen. This morning, I woke up with a different attitude. The Power of positive thinking..... my X sister in law would have given her arms and both legs to wake up with all of her children surrounding her this morning.... her first born, Alex, died on Thanksgiving.... I do not take the moment for granted, and i think that is why i felt such overwhelming happiness this morning. i wasn't thinking about what i don't have............. i was focused on what i do have.

well i gotta get out of here, my son has a Doctor appointment this morning..........

Katie,
The O's are for hugs. You know like xoxo means kiss, hug, kiss, hug. I was sending you hugs, 'cause your mom doesn't hug you enough!
