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.
And here are the 5 people I tag: Life In the Craft Lane with Mandie , DaysGoneBy , MagicGarden , TheCountryCellar , and TwoDancingCrows .
