I'm really bad about blogging about myself, but I'm going to give it a try. I've finished very few quilty projects this year, I've gained and not lost weight, my housekeeping has go from bad to worse, and I've spent too much time whining about life instead of living it.
What I did do right was reach out to my friends, virtual and physical, and I laughed and cried with them. I'm learning to be a "little" better listerner (this is a family defect....grin), and I'm trying to keep my mouth shut when someone is getting too bossy, well at least SOME of the time. I'm learning how not to argue when my Mom is trying to pick a fight with me. These things seem so simple, but I've spent most of my 64 years reacting to others. I try to forgive any injustices against me and just try not get offended in the first place. I've even forgiven myself for my many shortcomings and there are many....now that's hard.
Right now I hear a redbird singing in the front birdbath. He's reminding me that God loves me enough to share this beautiful bird with me. For some reason in my life the redbird is a "reminder" of hope for me.
After having said all that, I'm being tested. Someone is making way too much noise for me to concentrate on typing this blog..........LOL.......I guess I haven't made as much progress as I though, but laughing about it is also good.
Thank you Jesus for I would have not make it to Heaven on my own.......your totally unruly out-of-control Billie Beth............smile
