No Words…..

sad-woman-silhouette1

In the last 6 months my life has changed so dramatically I thought it would never stop spinning. Then two weeks ago it went from bad to worse. I let the people I care about here know that I was in trouble, and I needed some time. The responses were overwhelming and they continue to be that way! I have received emails and cards and sweet messages thru this time that have given me the strength and courage to keep going….there are women who have taken time from this busy holiday season and have made me feel loved and cared for,so,so many of you! “Thank you” just doesn’t even begin to cover it…..

Gratitude: thankfulness, or appreciation is a positive emotion or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received.

I have such a huge amount of gratitude for all I have been given here, and a real knowing that I am loved and cared for. Please know that without ALL of you I would be in a much sadder and desperate place…..

Grace: is that no matter how desperate we are, how hopeless things seem, we have a future and God has plans and hope for our future. Grace is that even if things aren't better tomorrow, they will be better.

So many of you have helped me to see this one very wonderful gift we get from God every day! It has been hard to see it at times in the last few weeks.

I am starting to feel hope again in the smallest of ways, and I know that day by day it will be better…..I just have to take it one day, one hour, sometimes one minute at a time….you have all helped me to realize this! God Bless you all!

One thing I noticed right away, as soon as I "met" you Sandy, is that you're a strong woman! You WILL get through this, and you'll come out of this even stronger. I'm sending love and prayers your way, and I just know that 2011 is going to be a great year for you!
xo,
Carol

Oh' Darlin', you just take what time you need to feel better. Sometimes we have to let the tears come and accept them and feel them and let all that pain pour out of us. Then finally when we're empty we can accept being refilled with the love that surrounds us. We can start to feel the blessings and even start to love ourselves or others again.

Sandy, I certainly don't pretend to know what is wrong or what problems you might have. All I know is the goodness and unselfishness that is you. Thank you for being just that...YOU! You're in my prayers and if I can ever do anything more, you just let me know.

Warm hugs and love....Tracy :)

I don't know what you are going through but,I can say I know who can carry you through this very difficult time in your life.....I too faced a very devastating event in my life a little over a year ago...had it not been for my Savior and Lord....Christ Jesus...plus the overwhelming love and response for friends(blogging friends as well) and family I know I would not be able to testify of this today...God is so able to make a way of escape from the many trials we must encounter in this life. I continue to trust him one day at a time...God is OUR refuge,Our very present help in time of need....I trust and pray he will carry you as he continues to carry me.....many blessings on your New year....Shelley

Hey Sandy. I finally found out that if I follow you by clicking on GFC it works but if I click on the follow button up top on your blog or another I tried tonight it doesn't. Don't ask me why, I'm just glad to be following finally.

Hugs...Tracy :)

Angela said...

(((hugs)) I think of the scripture..'without hope, Abraham hoped and believed'....There are times in our lives isn't there when everything around us IS hopeless and impossible....sigh...I want to share something with you that someone sent me a few weeks back:
Faith is:
Seeing the invisible.
Believing the impossible.
Receiving the incredible.

This is my prayer for you precious one and for myself also..Sandy, if my hubby comes to your mind, please say a prayer for him..he's in a place right now where he's not seeing God's gifts and it breaks my heart ...((hugs))
