11th Grade

I certainly can't believe that my baby boy is in eleventh grade.  Taking a photo of him is about as bad as getting a root canal!

A new year… a new strategy!

After all my tears, anger, giving in and hardening my heart this year, nothing changed.  Lastly, I did what I should have from the beginning — I gave it to God.  I believe I am where I'm supposed to be… Last year had me convinced I should give up what I love and find something else.  I was constantly shocked at what people felt was totally acceptable to say.  I was guilty myself of talking about people, judging them and just deciding I didn't like them.  When I didn't take the problem to the person I was upset with, problems only increased because they would hear about it from my gossip. People ALWAYS find out what you say.  Make sure you understand the part about ALWAYS.  I felt weighed down by so much negativity, that I did not like the person I allowed myself to become. Then angered when others talked about me (as if I wasn't doing the same thing… as you know, they ALWAYS find out).  God has promised me that trusting in HIM, HE will give me the strength I need to handle the problems with GRACE.  In every job, position, corporation, department, team there is a boss.  But. leaders are what every organization needs.  As my summer is over, I will return to work tomorrow.  I will not shield myself with negativity, gossip, hate or spread hatefulness. I will wear the armor of the fruit of the Sprit — love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Yes, I will stumble; without a doubt. Fast and hard!  But, I'm positive God is going to provide me with awesome people to pick me up.  Dust me off and remind me to be the person I want to be and not the one I give people the power to morph me into…

I can only speak for me...

I know this is going to make people mad or think I'm just crazy, but this blanketed blame of individuals is getting out of hand…

I think people need to stop and think about this whole situation.  There is a huge difference between "accidentally leaving a child in the car" and the intentional "accidental leaving a child in the car".  It is highly conceivable someone could forget.  

For example, when they are already running late for work, fighting traffic, going over meetings in their head and not the usual parent that drops the child off at daycare.  This is an accident.  A horrible, terrible, tragic ACCIDENT.  It is only by the Grace of God that I haven't done something so awful in my life.  My attention span is usually 1.2 seconds.  I find myself pulling into the parking lot at school and having no idea how I got there.  Well, I know I drove from Mendes to Hinesvilles by way of Hwy 196, but that's about all I could tell you some days.

But, strapping your child in and "forgetting them", only so you can find them later.  This is murder.

I love my son unconditional and I would never do anything to intentionally hurt him.  However, I can't say that I will never cause him harm accidentally.

Huge difference!  God's Grace helps me every day!
