Then there were...ten

The joy in finding someone special has been amazing and exhilarating and more than anything, fun. After meeting some horrific toads, I can easily say that the prince has arrived. Not Prince as in Purple Rain but the prince as in someone that I am cherishing spending time with. We are enjoying the chance to develop not only a friendship but build on our strengths and work together on our weaknesses. We both know that God has a sense of humor because with his 4 and my two + two bonus son in law and soon to be son in law, it makes for a very full heart.

We have laughed so much in the last few weeks, more than I ever thought possible. I have even shed tears of joy. I find that I wake up smiling and fall asleep, smiling. If this is what it's all about, then I'm head over heels, anticipating the other surprises along the way.

Last year, this same time, I was wondering where it was that I was supposed to be. I questioned my purpose, my desires and most of all, direction. Being unemployed, I faced the fears of the unknown. Since then, I've come full circle in seeing His blessings in my life.

I look forward to the adventures to come, not fearing what lies ahead. With 10, do you get egg rolls???

I needed to hear some HAPPY NEWS on this dreary, rainy, Monday. You go Girl - It sounds wonderful.
Now, I hope you'll tell us more very soon.

It couldn't happen to a more deserving gal. I noticed one day that my skin felt "strange". Joe and I hadn't even started dating yet, but after being very quiet and allowing my brain to recognize the strange feeling...it was pure LOVE! It was positively oozing out of my pores.

After 12 years of alone-ness, even my skin was rejoicing.

Ain't life grand!?!?!!

Just when you think your time has come and gone and that you're left with sediments, you find the creme de la creme.

Smile on and enjoy this thing we call life.
