I missed my blogaversary!!!!





It was January 5th, I was going to school and I missed it. Life happens to us sometimes. We get busy and forget whats happening in our little world. I agree what is happening in the Big bad World, is important. But what happens in our little world is important too. Having a home where you can relax and be yourself is as important as it gets. Where else can you sit all day in your pj's or bloomers as I call them, and be comfortable as can be.
I have become more comfortable with myself over this last year too. I have checked out a church close to our home not long ago. When I find the right one no one will be able to pry me out of it :) I have come to realize that no matter what anyone thinks, I am going to do what I feel is right. Because it is right for me, not them. I have grown away from my 2 older sisters and closer to the 2 younger ones I think. I have learned not to judge my older sisters and to accept that this is what they are comfortable with.
I have learned to pray a little harder this year and more often. To make my prayers simple and to the point. To not ask for anything I can work for. I ask for forgiveness and help for others. If I live right and teach Jon right from wrong I think I'm doing good. I've learned that a clean house is nice, but not necessary to make you happy. I was getting stressed over house-work... Not anymore. If the dishes are done and we have clean clothes I'm happy.
I have really missed Mom and Dad this past year. I 'm happy to to know that they are in heaven and no longer in pain. But I seemed to miss them more this year. I don't get to see my sisters as much as I'd like, this bothers me sometimes. This ties into missing Mom and Dad. We just spent more time together then. We all have made our own small world that we live in, and sometimes they come together and we visit.
I want to do more camping this spring and summer. Jon is dropping out of boy scouts and we will spend more time together this summer. Diane loves camping and I love it when we go to Mountain View. I should have a weeks paid vacation this year, but I'll take it a few days at a time. That way we can have some long weekends.
Now that I have written a book, what about you? Have you grown over you're blogger year? Are you happier with your life now a year latter?
I am. I'm happier when I come home from work. I'm at peace with myself and my hubby and son. I ask you.... What else is there?
Take care and God bless you all. Donna

Hey Sis... Wonderful post. Happy Blogiversary... mine is next month... I miss seeing you, too... I was really glad to see you Christmas eve... and I'm glad you have such a nice place to work... I pray you find a really good church, too. Wish it was with us.. but you have to pick... :) I still feel pretty rough but am going to try to go to work tomorrow.. I hope no one gives me anything.. my lungs can't handle anything else... Dr Richardson said I have bronchitis.. she did x-rays and I didn't have any pneumonia.. she thought I did because of a spot in my right lung.. but I have meds to take and I hope it will be gone soon... Will go for now... Hope you know how much I love you...even if we don't see each other all the time, you will always be by sis and buddy.. Hugs... Cecil... I miss Mom and Dad, too...

Great post! You sound happy. :)

Diane J. said...

Hey, Sis! Happy Happy blogiversary! You and Cecil started about the same time. Her blogiversary was the 25th of Jan.

I hope you find a church where you can be happy and feel needed. I'd be tickled if that was Providence, but you have to go where God leads you.

I miss Mama and Daddy and our family times together just as much as you do. If we had wheels I'd come see y'all. I miss seeing you. At least I see the other girls at church if no other time.

I want to go camping, too! But I vote for cold over hot weather. That last trip to Gunner Pool about did us both in, it was so miserably hot. Dangerous, too.

We only had about an inch of sleet, ice and snow, and it's all gone now. The rain finished it off, but we may get some more snow tonight they say. I'm not holding my breath.

Hope to see y'all soon, Sis.

Love you,

Joe

Donna,

First of all, Happy Blogiversary!

Second, I love your honesty in this post. I'm so happy that you are finding the right church and that you have such a peace within yourself. There's a lot to be said for "older and wiser", don't you think (I speak from experience)? :)

Good Morning Donna,
"HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY TO YOU". I do enjoy blogging myself. My Blogiversary isn't until Septmeber, so I still have a few more months to go. I have been inspired by so many since I have been blogging tho. So many wonderful people here in blogland. I do hope you find you a Church. I know what you mean tho. We don't go to Church on a regular basis because they got my DH involved in the politics of it and that really upset him bad. I am the happiest when my DH is at home with us all. I feel more at peace and feel alot safer when he is at home. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
