my wonderful little girl

Reading another journal had made me think of what my little girl did for me yesterday. We went to  the local fair just to walk around and get our minds off of things. There was a stand with used items that people were selling on a donation basis to help the church. It was at the end of the day so they were selling things a dollar for a box. My 10 year old daughter Emily saw an apron and some cake pans shaped like houses. She thought we could bake together. There was a real sweet lady there who helped Emily pick some things out for her box. Emily threw in a box with a pin in it of roses. She didnt let me know. She took it home and wrapped it up the best she could with regular paper and gave it to me. She said "Mom this is for you. I hope it mkaes you feel better" It made me cry. What a wonderful little girl I have!! What a blessing she is!! No matter what heppens in my life, I have her.

I have so many phone calls to make today. My stomach is turning. It is time for me to get my second wind and get things moving. I have children relying on me to get this done. I am going to say a prayer and get going. I will let everyone know how the phone calls went. I hope I get somewhere with them. Even if it is a little step in the right direction, i need some kind of hope today.

God,

PLease give me the strenght to make the phone calls I need to make today. Thank you for the blessings of my children. Help us keep our loving family together.

Amen.

I hope everyone is doing well. I will keep you in my prayers.

God Bless

Christine, I'm so glad you were able to get out & enjoy the day.  What a wonderful thing Emily did for you.  See...there are good things happening in your life.  I hope you made a little list of places to call and what you wanted to say at each place.  Sometimes it helps to put your thoughts down on paper before you make important calls like that.    "Dear Lord, thank you for what you're going to do for Christine and her dear family."   Linda in Washington state
