The Secret is out...spring has sprung!

A beautiful day on tap today...took a wonderful walk with my daughter #2 and enjoyed listening to the wind talk to the trees. I am facing a new chapter this year and am loving so many parts of it. We got out yesterday and hit the driving range for opening day at the golf course. It's so nice to be the "customer" now!We definitely had a ton of snow this year with a foot or so falling on April 1st!But it allowed us to ski and skate this year, and I must say the kids did amazingly well! They had never done either sport before and em and el are confident enough on skis to travel all the way to the summit, providing they only follow the green circle trails. We were able to travel to Rangely, ME and went to Saddleback Mountain too...it was a blast as we were able to visit with cousins.

I began a new job back in February which has brought me so much pride. I get to be a community liaison for a health care company which is similar to what I did in my past life before kids and cancer. I am still in my first 90 days and hopefully they keep me ;) It is year round work with benefits and I was able to afford to buy a car of my own for the first time in my life! Past cars were either hand-me-downs from family or company cars. It was very empowering going to negotiate for the "deal" by myself, no man in sight!

I have a great group of friends that come to my home on Mondays to knit and on Wednesdays our local library started a knitting group as well. It is still the best therapy for me and my anxiety! I am knitting a cardigan...it's been ripped out or "frogged" once already, so we will see if I can complete the project. Completion is a goal and I was able to complete many smaller projects for holiday gifts this year...and a few for myself :)
So no longer dating and feeling quite sad about the loss of a dear sweet person in my life...I am charting a new course and determined to keep chugging along and allow my heart to be open to what the Lord presents to me...in HIS time...HE will show me the way.

2011 is off to a great healthy, prosperous year! I have been exposed to the dvd/book "The Secret" and try to live the philosophy...so several years ago I was on the beer cart working Saturday mornings and chanted to myself each shift, "my life is full of prosperity and abundance". Well, I must say...it came true! I challenge you all to try it! Be well dear readers.

  3. True, "in His time, he will you a way". I also believe in that.I may feel discouraged and down on my temporary earthly circumstances, but I know that God will make a way. His ways is superb. Just delight God and he will give my heart's desire.

    By the way, I like your photo with your two lovely daughters.
