I'm Still Here!!

I haven't gotten lost - truly. This past week has been incredibly busy! I took a few days off in the hopes of getting some things done, including writing. "The best laid plans..." So far, I've not done anything of what I had hoped to accomplish!

Still, it has been a wonderful week. A dear friend had a precious baby girl on Wednesday; my sister, daughter and I had lunch and went shopping on Thursday; and yesterday I did my usual Friday tasks of grocery shopping for my parents, carried them to the doctor's office for lab work, grocery shopping for my family and laundry for my parents and my family. I get tired again just thinking about it.

I am grateful that I can do these things. I am thankful that my family is a close-knit family and that we enjoy spending time together.I am grateful for the new baby, Lila Grace McGee and that she and her mom are doing great. I am thankful that my health is good and I'm able to run errands for my parents. I am thankful that my husband is so supportive of me and allows me to do the things I want/need to do. I am thankful for my children and grandson - that all of them are healthy and safe.

Hopefully, with this blog, I am back on track and won't miss an entire week anymore. I must find time every day to write - blogs, current manuscript, contest entries. It is as essential as breathing to me.

Life DOES get in the way of things. But I'm sure God understands. I have had my share of those times,myself.

Isn't it wonderful to know that when life gets in the way, it doesn't catch God off guard?
