I write and write and write. I am looking for authors and down-to-earth people who share my interest and can give a novice, like myself, good advice in this exciting but demanding field. Looking forward to hearing from you. God Bless!

The Arabian - In my opinion, God's most beautiful creature. I hope to have another one someday.

Be what you need to be and Do what you need to do

I was thinking the other day, as I often do since my life has changed so much in the last 10-15 years, about how we are sometimes called upon to perform certain duties or jobs and how we can develop preconceived notions about those duties or jobs. How many times have you heard someone say, "I could never be a stay-at-home mom", or "I could never do what he does".

Now, if it is your opinion that you do not WANT to do what he does or you do not WANT to be a stay-at-home mom, then it is your right and obligation to follow through with those notions. BUT, if you are called upon to suddenly change pace or to go a different route due to circumstances beyond your control, then go forth with vigor and optimism.

We can be whatever we are called upon to be. God gives us the grace and strength to forge ahead and succeed in the areas and ways that he has placed before us. He knows more of what we can be and if we can succeed and enjoy it. We are a very adaptable species. We can survive in the most unimaginable circumstances and can succeed over and above our most impossible dreams.

I never thought I'd be able to be a stay-at-home mom. And I was one of those women that thought stay-at-home moms didn't do anything and their jobs were a lot easier than actual "paying" jobs. Boy, was I wrong ...on both counts! I could be a stay-at-home mom, AND a good one. And it is also one of the toughest jobs you'll ever have. I also didn't think I'd want to go back to work either but I have gotten back into the working world and it feels good.

My point being that we are given the tools that we need to accomplish whatever task we need to accomplish if we only have faith and listen to Him. He will give us the grace to manage it and be successful. We need not be afraid because NO ONE measures up to Him.

Rainbow Bridge

When a beloved pet dies, it goes to the Rainbow Bridge.
It makes friends with other animals and frolics over rolling hills and peaceful lush meadows of green.
They are as healthy and playful as we remember them in days gone by.

Together, the animals chase and play, but the day comes when a pet will suddenly stop and look into the distance.....bright eyes intent, eager body quivering.
Suddenly recognizing you, your pet bounds quickly across the green fields and into your embrace. You celebrate in joyous reunion. You will never again separate.

Happy tears and kisses are warm and plentiful, your hands caress the face you missed. You look into the loving eyes of your pet and know that you never really parted.
You realize that though out of sight, your love had been remembered.

You cross the Rainbow Bridge together. :)
