Auntie and Amber Easter 09
I believe for the most part I am a strong person, but I am strong because of my faith and the people in my life, still there are those moments I ask why me. I wonder how many more tests, how many more needle pokes, how much longer I will face AFOS and Mobility scooters, I carry a inhaler with me hoping I dont have to use it, but I often do when I am working with the kids, still I know it could be so much worse.
Childrens Church 08
My nieces my Nephews, the children I work with all give me the strength I need, but more than that of course the Lord does. There are times when I don't feel well enough to go to Church and I will have a little talk with God, and suddenly my strength my determination will be renewed.
I think of Shelly Bee, Megan, Mikey, Ethan and of course Amber and I find myself given the strength I need, the strongest medication I am given besides my faith is the nieces and nephews in my life.
The two Shellys Sept 07
When the above picture was taken Shelly Bee told a friend who asked if she were my daughter that No but she wishes she was, and the truth is one day I want a family, I want a marriage, but neither am I in a hurry and I have factors to consider too, like would I pass on the genes, would my children go through what I have or worse?
For now though I will be happy just being Auntie, and Childrens Church helper I will live my life to the fullest and do what I can while I can.
Me, Mikey and Fran with Amy Grant Sonora Ca
I choose to look at the postive aspects of my life, the moments that seem so small but are so huge like standing next to Amy Grant in this picture, as I met my Favorite Contemporary Christian singer, moments like that that will last me a lifetime.
Sept 08 Picture taken by Six Year old Jordin
I will let the children capture pictures of me on digital cameras because I understand the need for them to do things hand on, but I finally broke down and bought the younger ones there own so the older ones and I could be in charge of my camera.
Me, Amber and Amy May.2009 (Amy and I are friends from H/S One of my best)
I am going to cherish each moment I am able to spend with those I care about and try and remembering when I am feeling down the Lord is with me through it all.
