Happy Wednesday!

Well hello everyone!!!  There you are!
Sorry to have been away so long!!
So much going on at one time!!!!
Thanks so much to those of you who have checked in on me!!
You are so wonderful!

Hope your week is going well!
Mine is, though this week I am saying farewell to my closest friend.

She and her family are moving to NC on heart is heavy.

Maddy's BFF is her daughter, so we are both experiencing a loss.
Hopefully, we will see them when we head up that way for my
family reunion this summer.  Please pray for all of us as we transition
through this.

I read this quote the other day and just love it:


I try to learn from life experiences like these.
I want to grow through them, and have them yield the
beneficial fruit that they should.

That doesn't mean it won't hurt sometimes.
That doesn't mean I won't cry.
It doesn't even mean that I won't be a little angry.

But it does mean that I will intentionally choose to move through
the aforementioned as quickly as possible, and look forward with
anticipation to all God has for me in the days and weeks to come!!

We all always have something we have to deal with
We can choose to belabor it, and let it weigh us down, and
keep us from experiencing God's best, or we can choose to

praise Him in the midst of it,

ask for His wisdom, comfort, or whatever it is we need,
turning our focus instead  to Him and our many...and I mean
many blessings!!

So, today I am praising Him for the wonderful gift
of  DeAnn's friendship for the past 13 years.  We have
shared so very much, and she will forever be close in my heart!
Bless her and keep her, Lord, and give her joy in this new adventure!

What are you praising Him for today?

Love ya bunches!!

Blessings and Hugs, Becky

There’s Only One!




Maybe it is time…

To lighten up.

To be a little kinder to yourself.

Stop comparing yourself to others.

They could never be

Watch your self talk…

Be positive.

No shoulda, coulda, wouldas!

No if onlys or buts!

Embrace the uniqueness of you!

GOD does! 

He made you that way!  And in His book you’re perfection!

Treat yourself in some little way today

and know that who you are is not defined

by how you look, your mistakes, your finances, etc…

You are each a gift to me!!
Have a joyful day!  I’m celebrating YOU!!

Love ya bunches,
