Starting A New Chapter and Some Thought Provoking Questions.....

I am excited to say that I am starting a new chapter this week  with and am inspired by wonderful women again!

Demi should be coming home this week too so hopefully life will get back to some normalcy if there is such a thing.  I have missed her and the life we have but am so happy that she has had this time with her dad's family!  She is at South Padre and doing something today with her Aunt RaRa and Uncle Nick..can't wait to hear because it is a surprise since they are all lobsters today from being at the beach all day yesterday!!

Today I am going to be thankful for the difficult times and the time I have had to grow and learn.  That is an on-going process and daily thing.  I am really trying to learn to give total control over of my life for His purposes but it can be somewhat difficult at times.  I also need to learn to REST IN THE STORMS which is also not very easy to do without feeling the guilt and with my Type A personality.  I am sure some of you can relate to this as well.  

I want to ask you some questions today to get you thinking outside the box. 

If you knew a friend needed help with such things as food, gas, a hug and some encouragement would you be the first to jump in line to help?  If you have been in these shoes, have you been able to ask for help?  What does it take for you to see for you to want to step up to help or offer up a random act of kindness?  Do you ever feel compelled to step out of your comfort zone to see the world from a new set of eyes?  If not why not?  What lessons in life have you learned the hard way?  Do you live with regrets?  Do you let your circumstances define you and or are you willing to step up and make a difference by the way you live or with how your respond to these situations?    Do you feel blessed or wonder why life keeps throwing these curve balls your way?  Do you get up and go through the motions or do you really feel with your heart?  When you say you love someone, do you mean it?  Do you show those in your life that you are grateful by doing special things for them?  Do you ever get on your knees to pray?  Do you have friends who keep you accountable?  Does your life make a difference?  When you leave this world is it a better place?  What kind of legacy are you leaving for your children and family?  Do you inspire those around you to become better and make a mark in the places they have been?  Do those who have helped you become who you are know who thankful you are that they were in your life?  Do you live everyday as if it is your last?  Does your life have more importance because of what you have material wise?  If you were penniliess, how would you get by?  What is happiness to you?  Do you have a bucket list and if so what is on it?  Are you brave?  Are you a HERO?  Can you do more today?  Is today enough for you?  If today was your last day on earth, what would you do, who would you contact and what would be your last words? 

Aren't these some really good questions to make you think today?  

I hope you  make it a great Saturday and that you enjoy what comes your your kids and make sure they know how special they are...and be thankful for your life <3.
