Birthday Blessings

I'd like to feature my sister Patsy's artwork here in celebration of my birthday this month!




I thank God for the happy surprise I had the morning of my special day. Three of my closest friends came by and bought me a healthy breakfast. Whole wheat bread, cranberry juice, soy milk, fruits, granola bars and whole lot of loving! Thanks dearest friends!

She made this not knowing it was going to land with me! Wow what a surprise! It's entitled a Pocketful of Miracles. You can visit her blog at Heartworks She makes such wonderful things and she's also so supportive of my blogging! Thanks Patsy! :)

Acrobat


Life is like an acrobat. Sometimes you're up, sometimes you're down.

I was with some ten or so moms the other day talking about children, raising them, earning some money while you're at it. They were all good moms whose dreams were mostly to see their kids through school. College seemed a distant reality for them.

In many ways these moms are jugglers, tightrope walkers and lion tamers in their own right. They juggle responsibilities, try to get on the good side of their tired husbands and tame their riotous, at times, wild children.

I feel quite privileged to have the chance to listen to their concerns and try to help in whatever way I can. Looking at their lives, it could have easily been my own, depending on where you are born, where you land in life.

At this stage in our life histories, we have all been brought together by God for a purpose. To what end, I can only guess, just like the acrobat.

Hope you enjoy this week's ramblings as part of my Illustration Friday's entry. Please let me know how something about your life's circus!
