The past couple of months have been really stressful.  The beginning of January, I was in my home, concerned about how I could pay my bills, and waiting for the foreclosure notice of eviction .  My satellite tv and internet were cut off, and I had to go to either my son’s or daughter’s house to get access to my classroom.  Then I found out I would have to move.  I didn’t know where I would even move to.  Being a senior citizen, and only Social Security for income, made it worse.  I couldn’t afford a place to rent, nor did I even have the money to move.  Then my car broke down.  I didn’t have the money to fix it, so I sold it and used that money to move on.

I moved to my daughter’s home, and all the fears I had before moving, just disappeared.  My two dogs came with me, but I sent my two kittens to live with a friend, until I can get my own place.  I no longer have to be concerned about anything except my school and getting my degree.  My children are true blessings and my grandchildren are my heartbeats.

My days are spent studying, laughing with the children, enjoying the fresh air, and generally just being loved.  I have lived in a cocoon  of silence for the past 12 years.  It has been a big transition to find myself involved daily with family once again, and I thank God every day for my life and the blessings he has bestowed on me.  They are too many to count.

If you find yourself faced with major changes as I have, don’t fight it.  Embrace the change and trust God to carry you over the rough spots and to put you where you are supposed to be.  Be happy and never lose your joy.
