Hello again my friends

Good to be alive(ms) – Michelle Featherstone

I have to say I have a renewed uplifted feeling today, Possibly it's sun being out for so many days in a row. I have been trying to reach this level to come back in a better and more positive frame of heart.

So much has happened since my last posts, I don't even no where to start.
Say what you will about Facebook, but it brought me my extended immediate family.

I found sisters and a brother that are from my father's previous marriage, I am now the younger sister again for the second time in my life. I am just getting to know them, All of them are warm and loving...I needed them in my life.

We just had 2 babies born into the family and God has blessed us with a boy and a girl, both are beautiful and perfect in every way. I still don't know how many times over that this makes me the Great Aunt but it doesn't matter. I'll love them all the same.

Taking time to smell the flowers with my Amalie
My Mr and I are still pursuing the American Dream and hopefully someday some financial security along the way. I cannot lie, it's been tough at times. It always is when your trying to do things that are your own creations and trying to make it marketable to others. But even with the deviations due to the economy we have found ways to keep on keeping on and remained true to our dreams. That's what people don't understand, American ingenutiy we just keep on trying no matter what. It's all heart.

My favorite quote lately has been is this going to matter in 5 years? If it's no, I don't fret. and God help us all.

I've been gardening again, I planted a month or so ago and it just sat there. Our unseasonable cool and rainy spring stunted most of my plants. I see some growth in some of them but worry that the cool weather crops are going to suffer a untimely death by heat wave some day soon. Again it won't matter in 5 years so I'm not fretting.

More prayers are said in the act of toiling in my garden and being at peace with my thoughts...God bless you all.

Great to see you again! I'm beginning to think that life is meant to be about the struggle. Look how unhappy the idle rich are and how much trouble they get themselves into. A little security would be nice though.

I am so very happy to see your notes again, always a blessing! And you really have had a lot going on in your life! I am amazed you found your family on Facebook, but anything is possible I've come to find out~~~
Enjoy your garden, it will heal whatever ails you! You are never far from my thoughts.

"Will it matter in 5 years?"

I think I am going to adopt that...with your permission, of course.


Amalie is so so beautiful.

I mean-- Welcome back!!! So good to hear such awesome and heartfelt Family Love! Happy for you Sweeti!!!

Don't be a srtranger now!!!

PS: Need prayers for House Shopping! It shoud be fun--but I know with so many choices it could be a daunting task.

I am so happy that you have found extended family--that has to be both exciting and kinda scary all rolled into one.

Also--maybe that's what I'm doing wrong-- I need to PRAY over my garden instead of... :-).

Great to see your comments again!!
