PRETTY INTENSE ...

I am thrilled to say that I have now completely finished my first Journaling Junkie challenge and I will submit it to Stefanie today so keep popping into this site to see my story of "Everyday Life" ... please bear in mind that this is totally a journaling challenge blog and my LO is not quite what I envisioned when I started out - I am nonetheless pleased at the result, but my mind had a more spectacular LO in sight when I started ... tee hee ... I was going to pull it apart and start again seeing as how it is my debut as a Design Team Member but then I remembered just in time that I am human after all and that even us perfect people have a semi-bad day ... tee hee ... after all, my MOJO is still drinking MOJITOS on the ISLAND ... bad, bad girl that she is .... (I'm assuming here that my MOJO is female ... not sure yet since "IT" abandoned me ...)

On a more positive note (I say this simply because I have again realised this morning that life is so precious and humbling and there is SO MUCH to be grateful for EVERYDAY), I was browsing early this morning (4.30am) and I came across this site

It is such a sad yet uplifting story - go take a look - the positive energy literally radiates from this blog and the faith this family has in our Heavenly Father is truly inspiring ... Please join me in keeping this family in our prayers TODAY ....

And what is also inspiring is that her blogging followers feel as though they know her from her posts and her positive attitude to life - so many people have commented that she "makes them better mothers" ... how awesome is that??? Her blog has been an inspiration to 10's of 1000's of people - the LESSON here is threefold ... (1) don't stop blogging - somewhere, someone may be inspired by your Story; and (2) try to maintain a positive spin on your life especially in the most difficult of times; and last but certainly not least (3) Put your Trust in the Lord always ...

Wow, this has turned out to be a pretty intense post today ... Have a fantastic day and tell those you love how much they mean to you ...

Love,

Lovely layout. The journalling is to true in its relation to not only children but us adults too.

Amazing how positive some people can be in dire times. But that positiveness can only help them get through the bad times.
