Hello visitors to my site! I want to thank you ALL of you, family, friends, people who love what I do and people who hate what I do. My e-mail box continues to fill up with requests, comments and updates. I decided it is time for me to address this situation.

For over three years now, there has been very little activity on my site. I continue to be grateful and appreciative of every one of you who has contributed to my site and to those who send me things on a daily basis. My illnesses have NOT been a friend of mine in any way. I have been unable to sit at my computer long enough to do much and I feel overwhelmed most of time.

I carry a tremendous amount of guilt about not being able to do much for the children at this time. The good news is that I am getting better. With medication changes, dose adjustment and too much time passing, I am improving and have, once again, been able to do more than I ever thought I would be able to do. The bad news is that I have to prioritize every minute to accommodate the time I am able to get up and be a productive human being.

What this means is that for now, I have to keep my website on the back burner. There is much to be done in my home and in my life and I have to make these things my priority for now. I am PRAYING that within the next five to six months, my health will be MUCH further improved and I can get back to what needs to be done for the children.

I hope that you will continue to send me all of the updates, comments, suggestions and e-mail just to check on how I am doing. I fully appreciate every one of you, your patience and understanding mean the world to me.

May God bless you all and keep you in his care.

Love and hugs to you all,

"Don't be afraid of tomorrow,
for God is already there"

All I Ever Have To Be

   When the weight of all my dreams

    Is resting heavy on my head
    And thoughtful words of health and hope
    have all been nicely said 
But I'm still hurting
    wondering if I'll ever be the one 
I think I am  I think I am 

Then you gently re-remind me
    that you've made me from the first
    and the more I try to be the best 
the more I get the worst
And I realize the good in me
    is only there because of who you are
    Who you are

    And all I ever have to be 
is what you've made me
    any more or less would be a step 
out of your plan
    As you daily recreate me
help me always keep in mind
    that I only have to do what I can find
    And all I ever have to be, all I have to be
    All I ever have to be
    Is what you've made me

Today is November 9, 2011 and I am doing what I do every now and then, changing the graphics on my site. I have found over the years that making graphics and working on my website has been therapeutic and it takes my mind off anything that is happening in my life. The graphics I create often reflect what has been going on in my life, as for their color and the feel of them. (if that makes sense and I hope it does)

The past year and a half has been tough, with illness, death in my family and other challenges. I don't always face those challenges with the strength I have lead myself to believe lives inside of me. In fact, I have not faced ANY of them with
any kind of strength at all for the last year. Today, I decided to jump in and see what I could to make my site just a little bit better. At time like these, you find  out just exactly how strong relationships are and who is going to stick around and who is going to bail on you. I can only say that my husband, son and family have stuck around and my real friends are still here.

I have been re-doing a lot of the grahhics on my site, checking the pages for spelling errors, though I am sure there are still more, checking links, deleting pages, adding other pages and just spending time making it what I consider to be better. My two main focuses on my site lately have been the pages honoring children who have been abused or abused to death and getting new graphics on some of the pages. While there are times I feel I fail miserably, I do my best to make my site the best I can possibly make it.

I hope that you find something of interest to you and if you find something you feel needs my attention, please feel free
to e-mail me.

God bless,

Give Me Wings

Give me strong silken wings
 that I might learn to fly
I'll never know if I can
unless I am given the chance to try

And if my wings can carry me
so very far away
Then if it is meant for us to be
then surely my wings will carry me
back to you some day

Though if by chance
I am meant to be free
never finding the path
back to you

Don't shed a tear
for what might have been
sometimes dreams that make us happy
never do come true

And if some day we meet once more
in another time or place
and I should weep for what is lost
don't wipe the tears
from my saddened face

Just love me for who
I wanted to be and I shall try
to do the same
and if you can't accomplish that
at least show no regrets
that I ever came
