WEll we had a pretty good Thanksgiving and still in the midst of it all I was able to maintain my weight. That is pretty good I think, I have been trying my best to lose weight since my last son was born, He just turned 3 months and I have went from weighing 228 when I checked in to the hospital to have him to weighing as of this morning 188, SO I think that is pretty good. :) Anyhow I really tried to focus this yr with the kids about what Thanksgiving is about it is not only being thankful for what you have but also being thankful that God is God, plain and simple. NO matter what trial you go through , no matter what you face God is still God and he loves ya! :) Isn;t that awsome. I have went through some not so nice things in my 28 yrs, wow am I really 28! UGH. Anyway , but having said that going through those things and SURVIVING through those things made me so much stronger and the person,mom,wife,friend,daughter,sister I am today. I thank God I went through all I did!! Did I really say that?>?? Yep, I did. Most people will never know what all I have went through and it really doesn;t matter, God knows. What I am trying to say is I know many people have it rough right now, I am not saying my life is a bed of roses by no means but we do have sooooooooooooo many things to be thankful for. I heard at church that if you have a roof over your head, clothes on your back, money in your checking acct, or even just change in a dish somewhere in your house you are amoung the top 8% wealthiest people in the whole world. WOW!!! SO, take the time to thank the Lord for all you have . Kiss your kids, smile a little, take time to spend one on one with your Father and life will be so much sweeter. God bless all of you.

I know many are upset at the results of the election ( and some are beyond pleased) . I will admit I have been thinking well what if he does this or what if this happens. What if he really does sign into law the Right to Choose Act. Those kinds of things. But really do we have any control over those things. Yes we can state our opinions , sign petitions but in reality how much control do we really have over the outcome. But we do have control! Through prayer! I have become more and more a believer of prayer. NO things may not turn out how we prayed but we have to believe that God knows what he is doing. And no matter who is in office God is still God!!!! NO matter what nobody can take that away. So smile, look at your children and thank God for the miracles he has given you. There are still good days ahead. The sun will still sign, birds will still sing,flowers will still bloom. Yes, it may be ending the end times but is that so bad? Hang in there everyone and when you get physically sick from worry just pray. God will take care of us. He always has and he always will!
