Hey. I know I’ve been missing in action for some months now. I’ve had plenty of life changes and challenges in the last few months, the most notable being my dad’s passing. I was privileged to be there when he transitioned on and I thank God for providing an example of loving parents in my life.
Today is a special day. It is the day of love, February 14th. While thinking about some of the plans that I have scheduled, today I had a chance to reflect on how the love shown and given to me has influenced the person I am today.
While we normally share flowers and candy and sweet things with our mates, I find myself listening to the chorus of voices of those that constantly told me ” you can do it!” when the challenges came. So yes I can rip out that bathroom down to the studs, I can change over my HVAC system from summer to winter, and I can patch, paint, sand, and refinish any and every project I put my mind to, while caring for my kids.
I hope that today you guys are being built up and filled with love to strengthen you for the challenges you face. A little snow, no problem. Let me grab my coat, shovel and boots then add a few pins just to make it look pretty.
