You take the good, you take the bad, you take 'em both and there you have

The facts of life.  The facts of life.  Yea, show of hands how many of you are singing that now.  lol 

A lot of stuff has been going on this summer.  Projects, reading, family time.  Most of it has been pretty awesome.  This week has been a mixture of awesome, awestruck, and awwshitakemushrooms.

Monday afternoon brought unwanted clarification.  I knew with 95% certainty of this information already.  But for those of you that know me personally, that 5% makes all the difference.  Well, as of Monday, I have 100% clarification and that hurt.  I know I share just about everything with all of you, but I cannot go into detail.  Just know that this information had me crying in the arms of my loving husband while I felt very unwanted and unloved.  I texted my spiritual gurus and they held my mat while I cried.

Going to bed Monday night, I talked to God most of the night.  I asked Him to hold me.  I asked Him why? I asked Him to help me forgive.   I asked Him lots of questions and He gave me answers.  He answered Tuesday morning in spades!  I awoke to a twitter from Fr. Larry Richards saying "courage daughter, your faith has saved you."  Cool, no?!  Then, I went to daily Mass with my priest and FOUR Deacons!  SO cool!  And, it was one of my very favorite readings!  Then, I had breakfast with my Podmate who always, always cheers me up and teaches me about God.  And, if that weren't enough, I got to chat online with my favorite Priest whose currently in India!  Granted, it was most brief, but much needed!

Tuesday advanced a personal project I'm working on.  Thursday, I met with a lovely woman to advance my project!  Nope, I'm not telling you what it is until it's official.  You'll have to wait!  Bwa ha ha!  Then, I got to have lunch with one of my favorite people!  She moved away and is back to visit this week!!!  Then, today, I watched as my son used his Eagle Scout skills and repaired our bathroom toilet...without duct tape!  After that, I went to watch my amazing nephew's band concert today.  He's so awesome!  It's cool to live so close and watch him grow up into a fine young man.  I am most proud of him!  And, if that wasn't enough, it was annual Cow day at Chik-fil-A!! My sister who's my biggest supporter (and my heart, and my everything) and I went with my nephew to our annual cow day lunch.  It was absolutely lovely!  Then, I came home and I called my dad (George's).  He never ceases to make me feel loved :D

It's funny to watch how God works sometimes.  Sure, my week started off shitakemushrooms.  And, truth be told, I'm still smarting from it and probably will for some time.  That doesn't stop the rest of my week being an amazing highlight reel of my family, my friends, and my faith!  God continues to show me how much I am loved.  How much I am needed.  How much I am blessed.  And, that my friends, I truly am.  I am blessed to be a blessing.

Until next time,
Know that no matter what, I.  Like.  You.
