New Cool Site!

Okay.... new cool background huh?! Courtesy of a friend who also has a blog I found this AWESOME site for Blog layouts and it's totally free! Check it out...


Okay, I got gas this morning for $3.18! Who knew that number could be so exciting.... especially related to gas! LOL! It's so nice to only pay $40 now instead of $60 to fill up my gas tank! Now if we could only get that number down to $30 a tank! LOL! I remember when gas went over $1.00... and we just THOUGH we were getting ripped off then. Oh well, Yippee for lower gas prices! ( and a kroger's card!)

Life Choices....

We are all faced with challenges in life and I think one of the hardest ones to face is grief. There are so many different and perplexing emotions that come wrapped up in that one word. In some ways it's almost like a weird organized chaos in your mind.
Here is the definition of Grief: "A deep & poignant distress caused by or as if by bereavement". So let's break that down.... Distress: "Pain or suffering affecting the body or mind". Poignant: "Painfully affecting the feelings; designed to make an impression".
Wow! So basically grieving is designed to bring about change. That's huge! It makes grief a productive place to be I guess. Although it may be hard at the moment it's the chance to change your life. To let go of and move forward from some thing that is holding you back from your full potential. To be one step closer to becoming all that you were created to be. It's all about the choice.... what you CHOOSE to do with where you are. The question is.... what does the moving forward look like?
