April 10th

Lately things have been looking up for Gavin, Craig and I. Gavin actually went school with no issues on Friday. Although he has only been to therapy once, already he is starting to apply the tips and tools that the therapist gave him. Now we just have to hope it stays that way.

I had a great week. Working at the gym was fun, my workouts have been really good, and I am feeling good about getting stuff done around my house. Never did we get mulch for the yard last year so it is nice to see the front of the house all nicely mulched with the Easter/Spring flowers in bloom. I love the black. It really shows the colors of the flowers well.

I am working on the Happy Inspirational Scrappin Blog again. My sister-in-law has some great ideas that she is sharing with us soon. The blog's background is now a rainbow and everything on the blog revolves around that theme. I am excited to start it up in May. We already have a new follower!

Church this morning was awesome. And, another person came up to me and thanked me for my 'sermon' a few months back. They said it inspired them. WOW! That is two people that I didn't know that have thanked me for that. I was hoping to touch just one person...but two! How exciting.

My life is changing and it is because I am filtering out the negativity.....in situations, in people, in my life. The quote I picked for the HIS Challenge that starts in May is:    
People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed
only if there is a light from within.

~ Elizabeth K├╝bler-Ross ~

The reason I chose it was because I used to be the stained glass that only looked nice in the sun. But now because I have God's light within, I can shine even in the dark. People do notice.....and my Pastor even mentioned this during her message this morning. People do notice when one is living with God as their light. I am hoping that I can shine on everyone who is around me and show them what God can do for them.
