Post Title

     One time someone said, man, the world would be a great place if you just didn't have to deal with ornery people.  May I second that motion?  Thank you.  I'm feeling tonight like I would so enjoy living in a cave somewhere, however,  I'm sure that there are those in my circle who feel the same way about dealing with me.
     I haven't written in a long time.  I have ideas, I have thoughts to share.  I just don't have whatever it takes to write regularly - but, it's always helpful to me when I do.
     Lent is upon us, and soon, Easter will be here - it comes early this year - the end of March.  Lent - I'm not Catholic, but I sometimes participate in giving up certain things during this time.  Nothing I can do will ever impress God, or earn my way into His favor, however, it's a spiritual discipline that should probably be practiced.
     I just wanted to write here to let someone know I'm still struggling.  Still keeping on.  Still learning and growing,  Still getting exasperated at the human race, and myself.  I know no one reads this blog, but that's ok.  I'm putting my thoughts out in cyberspace and leaving a footprint - I don't know why.  I wish I were more like my sister-in-law.  Quiet and contemplative, rarely misspeaking or saying foolish things.  Always, her speaking is well-thought out and she offers wisdom.  I look and sound like a little girl when I'm beside her.   I so dislike myself sometimes.

I'm still reading. And I understand about getting exasperated about the human race. Sometimes I feel like my job should be to prevent my kids from being those annoying ignorant ornery beings... and then I look at the mirror and photos from college and I figure I'm wasting my time. They'll probably be crazy like me. However it's those of us who misspeak, say foolish things, are loud, and changing who are sometimes the most interesting people in the world. And although we are far from perfect... we tend to be relateable and sometimes fun... and annoying... to hang out with. I love you as you are. :)

I enjoy reading your blog. You do have things to say. We all struggle and thankfully, the Good Lord does not expect perfection from us. We just need to keep trying to see people the way He does and do our best to please Him.
Love you,

You are who you are, dear. You know the old saying about God not making any mistakes. What would this world be without you and your descendants?

I just dropped in to see if you were still blogging, as I have not heard from you in a long time. Glad to see you are still sharing your thoughts with the world. I would love to hear from you...:-)
