I've been tagged........


It's been a couple of days since I've posted anything, but Sandra from BabyCakesDesigns has been busy, LOL! She tagged me to write a 6-word memoir of my life. Now, don't get me wrong, 6 words is a whole lot better than trying to write an essay, but you're looking at someone that takes a long time to figure out what to write and how to put it on "paper". My 11-year old son is fussing right now about having to write a 3-4 paragraph essay about his spring break..........think he takes after me???


I've been trying to figure out if there is a comical or lighthearted 6-word memoir I can come up with, but I am having no luck. So, here goes..........strong, only because God knows best. My life, for the past 6 1/2 years, has been very painful, strengthening, enlightening, and I really wouldn't trade it for anything because it put me back into a relationship with God, something I had put aside. I mentioned earlier that my youngest boy, now 9, has leukemia and had a stroke, 2 months before he turned 3. God had, and still has, everything under control, and that was His way of letting me know that I needed to give Him complete control. I will never forget what a dear friend told me......."you can ask God WHY??? or you can realize that He trusts you to take care of this child through everything that will happen." Sometimes I still think, "please God, don't trust me so much!! I'm not as strong as you think I am." But every time someone asks me how I do it, or praises me for being able to go through so much, I realize that I am stronger than I think I am, and I know it's only because of God and His knowledge of me and my abilities.
So, now I have to tag 5 more people. I had a hard time last time finding 5, but I'm going to branch out and be braver this time, LOL! So here are the rules:
1. Write your own six word memoir
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post
4. Tag five more blogs with links
5. Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.

I was tagged and followed the trail to figure this whole thing out. 6 words? Hmmm. I am realizing Sherlock Holmes type person is me because that is how I ended up here. And, your words in this post have intrigued me. And your music too is amazing. Come and visit me. And rest and trust in God. You've heard it before but he won't give you more than you can bear. He is close to the broken hearted. I struggle with that but I know it is true. It is the circumstances that are just hard. I am glad I tracked you down sista. Blessings, Sherry
