Making the most of every moment!

I am of the mindset when life gives you lemons make lemonade. I have never been the cry over your sorrows kind . When the pressure is on I am a go to girl. The more you throw my way the more you will get back. I don't know what it is about being a fighter mentality but it's in me. I love the people I love and I if I don't like you, you will defiantly be able to tell. Don't mess with my kids, my husband or my friends or family. These are the things that make me up. I live in the moment and try to make the most of it. I never go a day without laughter except when I lost my dad. Life is to short to worry about the small stuff and normally I have a full plate to keep me going. With five kids there is not alot of time for much else. So if you are self absorbed, arrogant, or looking for a one sided friendship I don't have the time!
We all need to step outside ourselves and put our self in someone Else's shoes from time to time, it builds compassion and relationship. Most people who do not have friends it is because they have never taken the time to be a friend. Friendships and life you get out of them what you put into them.

Even when everything is turned upside down in my life and I should be overwhelmed, I can feel at peace. With a future that I cannot see or know what it looks like. Decisions that need to be made and not know which way to go. I find comfort in the fact that God is in control and I am not. I have always been of the mindset that if I learned a lesson a bad choice or the trial was well worth the pain. All because I gained knowledge from it. The last two and a half years have been difficult in every area of my life. My faith has been tested, I have lost my father and countless financial and work related issues. All of which any one could have crumbled my world. I became a mother again and was unprepared for that as well. Through it all I have found grace and very valuable lessons. These lessons and difficult times are the ones that in the end define who you are, what your made of and ultimately how you will overcome adversity in your life. Though the story is not yet finished and this chapter has not yet closed I am hopeful for the outcome.
