Happy Number Seven!

To my better half,
Happy Anniversary
When years are passing by like days,
and in my hand your hand is placed,
a knowing smile crosses your face,
a simple touch can still make my heart race.

When I can see my soul in your eyes,
and you see your soul in mine we realize,
that a love so deep can harbor no lies,
where our only tears shed were happy tears we've cried.

I love you as much now as I ever did before,
if possible, I may even love you more,
all starting from a feeling we did not ignore,
a feeling of connection we chose to explore.

I don't know what it is that you saw in me,
what I saw in you was the utmost happiness
that can ever be,
even more so on the day when you and I
became "We",
I can still smile and say with love and
truth, I love you...Happy Anniversary.

My Humble Heart....

Have you ever met someone who has a seemingly perfect life? I am sorry to say that I am not that person. I am however, someone who values the struggles that have been thrust upon them and realize that it is because of these struggles that I am who I am today.

My life has never been perfect, but lately it has been filled with an increasing number of opportunities and trials for me to trust and put my faith in Heavenly Father. I believe that everything happens for a reason. Yes, I do mean everything. Every happy, great, sad, and down right awful thing that happens in life is meant to be. My experiences over the last three years of my life have really challenged this idea. Most days I am not sure why I bother living another day. Then I bring myself back to reality and assure myself that things can always be worse and things aren't that bad.

I started working at the IRS again and realize what a blessing it is to have a great job at my fingertips. My reinstatement was going to expire in August of this year. I felt it very necessary to return to work for many reasons. Although this has been a very difficult adjustment to wrap my mind around, I feel very humbled.

Faith is the key to all things. My testimony has never been so strong. The Lord has blessed my life in so many ways. I have to keep telling myself that things will get better and everything will work itself out.

I have been blessed with a wonderful family and great neighbors who are constantly helping me get through each day. Everyone is so willing to help me with anything. I feel so guilty about asking people to help me out. I am indeed grateful for everyone in my life. My sweet mom has been such a blessing to my kids and I. She is always so willing to drop everything to help me. I couldn't make it through this time of my life without her. I love you mom!

Sorry for my rambling post.. I will post more later!
