From the Bottom of My Heart!

Isn't it just like me to finally have all things in place to say hello once again to you, and not know what to type?  First, oh how I've missed each of you.  The weeks turned into months, then during those months time turned into moments. The weeks have brought  illness in this house, financial burdens, and then my husbands brother-in-law/best friend ended his life.  There are very few words to describe Dave's passing, but I will say I witnessed an enormous amount of Grace.  Humility was given and shown to my husbands family, and their courage and faith during this time has effected me forever.


 While I was away from my blog, I pleaded and begged that all our electronics would magically appear again.  Nothing was happening fast enough for me.  What would my few followers do?  They might pack up and leave.  Would they accept me back?  Oh the crazy thoughts I have thought.  Then when I got the chance, I would sneak around blog land.  Yes you read that right, sneaked.  Every once in-a-while I would stop by and comment on your blog, but not often.  I just couldn't find any words to type. I wouldn't want you to stop by mine, and see that I wasn't there.   I couldn't find my way back. Then tragedy hit and I understood timing.  My family needed me, and I was not distracted.  I could give, I could pray, and I could stop feeling sorry for myself.  Isn't life just like that?


Where do each of you fit in?  Your kindness.  Even when I was absent, there were notes sent to me via e-mail.  Notes saying, "Hey, is everything ok?  Haven't seen you around the screen much."  You will never know how much I needed those notes and as silly as this might sound, I have needed each of my followers.  I look at your little boxes, and think, "They care Glenda."  That's why they hit the button to follow.  I'm just hopeful like that.   And now here I am, back with you my new found friends.  I have missed you.  From the Bottom of My Heart,  hello and thank you!  I'll be seeing you around the screen soon enough.
As always, I can't thank you enough for stopping by!

  1. I am so glad you are back. I’ve checked on your blog a few times--last night in fact. I figured you were still spending time with the grand baby. I am so very sorry for your family’s loss. I will be praying for you all to get through a very hard time.

    Rest assured, we are still here and our thoughts are with you sweet Glenda.
    Hugs, Amy
