A Blast from the Past…
by Margie Conway
2009 was an odd year for most of everyone I know. As the year ended I reflected on the things that made a big impact. I used the letters in the word “Gratitude” as a base to start from. Each one points to someone or something that captured a lot of my time last year. My Grandma was a big part of my ups and downs for the year. Her health deteriorated and we were forced to place her into a full time nursing facility. Between that and my own health I stayed on edge. These things helped me keep my perspective and focus on the good things.
G is for Grandma – She was always there for me, now I will be there for her.
R is for Ricky – My husband always supports and participates in all of my crazy schemes. He also keeps me grounded.
A is for Altered Plans – When the world throws in trouble, such as car trouble, the Lord throws in something great! Groundhogs!
T is for Three Children – We are a blended family. These are OUR three children.
I is for Inspiration – No matter what, no matter where – God shows up.
T is for Three Grand Children – Blessed, Blessed, Blessed! What more should I say?
U is for Understanding – Through all my health problems Friends and Family are there.
D is for Delight – I find delight in all things! God supplies my joy!
E is for Experience – 2009 was an odd year. But through it all I am blessed beyond measure! These things I will remember!
