Rose Colored Glasses
Years ago someone very close to me once ( or actually several times) said that I viewed life through "Rose Colored Glasses." While that may have been true then, I have found that sometimes life needs a little help to look better than the hard realities that we face day in and day out. I have discovered over the years that we all need encouragement that we are not in this alone. We only get to live this life once and I want my life , imperfect that it is, to be an encouragement for those around me. Do I get it right every single day?!?........."Absolutely not!!!!" But "His mercies are new every morning," and for that I am eternally grateful and forever hopeful "rose colored glasses" and all.

Well I finally did it!! I have been pondering this blog thing for awhile now. I have prayed about it and talked about it to anyone that I thought might be interested. I have always loved writing.......letters, cards, journaling.... I felt like this form of writing would be a great way for me to be accountable for how I live my life everyday......the struggles, the pain, the joy!! Life is so good, but sometimes I need to be reminded of that fact. It's in the hard patches that I seem to learn the best lessons. I hope that this blog will be not only accountability for me, but an encouragement to someone else that we are not in this alone. We all struggle with everything from hateful words, to scraping gum out of the dryer and in my case right now......trying to get a strong willed puppy to use the puppy pad. I'm excited about this new path that God's leading me on. Can't wait to see what He has in store.
